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.

Universal Access
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.

Parking
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.

Pets
Dogs are not allowed on any trails at Canyonlands National Park. Please do not bring your dog here.

Warning
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.

Fees
Vehicle entry fees to Canyonlands National Park is $30 as of September 2023.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). 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.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
