WALK SUMMARY

This inspiring 2 mile circuit winds out to the extreme southern tip of the Island in the Sky for some unforgettable views – indeed, it is the proud possessor of these throughout.

Throngs of people, at least in its early stages, but an unmissable experience. Take a picnic lunch, or get there for dawn or sunset…

Hot, dry desert. Bring enough water and be prepared!

See our Canyonlands National Park page for more general and practical information and photos.
