Canyon Rims Recreation Area Review

With a few hours to spare, you can enjoy two remarkable canyon-country vistas. Turn off U.S. 191 at a point centered between Moab and Monticello (about 27 mi south of Moab and 26 mi north of Monticello), and the paved Needles Overlook Road runs 22 mi west to Needles Overlook, which takes in the southern end of Canyonlands National Park. Less than 20 mi farther on a good, graded road is the Anticline Overlook, which encompasses the Colorado River, Dead Horse Point, and other locales to the north.
