One of the best Canyonlands viewpoints and just seconds from the parking lot. You can see for 50 miles or more over the Green River and Monument Basin towards the Land of Standing Rocks (bring your binoculars). If you want to see a distant view of the confluence of the Green and Colorado Rivers hike out on the short Overlook Trail.
