Just north of the visitor center, this scenic overlook atop Boat Mesa is a great first stop after you enter the park. There are splendid views of Fairyland Amphitheater and its delicate, fanciful forms. The Sinking Ship and other formations stand before the grand backdrop of the Aquarius Plateau and distant Navajo Mountain. Nearby is the Fairyland Loop trailhead; it's a stunning five-hour hike in summer and a favorite of cross-country skiers in winter.
