The Green River Overlook at Canyonlands National Park near Moab, Utah is an easy 0.2-mile out-and-back universally-accessible trail that features panoramic views of the Green River.
This is not a hike but rather a short out-and-back walk along a paved and universally-accessible pathway. At the end of the trail sits the sweeping 180-degree views of the Green River as it bends its way through the desert and eventually connecting to the Colorado River. The views hikers get from the overlook are mostly all southwest-facing.
Note that the main pathway is paved and universally accessible; however, there's a dirt path section to this track that is not universally accessible.
Visitors will find a large parking lot at the coordinates provided, located at the very end of the Green River Overlook Road in Canyonlands National Park.
Dogs are not allowed on any trails at Canyonlands National Park. Please do not bring your dog here.
Sun exposure: This trail has very little shade and no water sources. Pack-in all water and wear sun screen and a hat to protect against sun exposure. It's smart to hike either in the early morning or late afternoon to avoid the intense desert sun.
No water: This trail has no water sources so you must pack-in all water. A general rule of thumb in the desert is 1 gallon of water per person per day.
Rattlesnakes: This is rattlesnake territory, so be on the lookout and give any rattlers you find plenty of space.
Steep cliffs: This trail follows steep cliffs. Watch your step and give yourself plenty of space from the edge of the cliffs for your own safety.
Vehicle entry fees to Canyonlands National Park is $30 as of September 2023.

As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.
