Canyonlands National Park Sights



Pothole Point Trail

Pothole Point Trail Review

Microscopic creatures lie dormant in pools that fill only after rare rainstorms. When the rains do come, some eggs hatch within hours and life becomes visible. If you're lucky, you'll hit Pothole Point after a storm. Otherwise, you'll have to use your imagination. The dramatic views of the Needles and Six Shooter Peak make this easy, 0.6-mile round-trip walk worthwhile in their own right. Plan for about 45 minutes. There's no shade, so wear a hat.
