Fodor's Review

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

encompasses the Colorado River, Dead Horse Point, and other locales to the north.
