Trying to decide which is the best viewpoint in Canyonlands National Park is an impossible task, but the White Rim Overlook definitely ranks among the top two or three. The overlook point lies on the eastern end of a long, slender finger of land that extends outward for nearly a mile from the southern end of the Island in the Sky. From the end of the promontory it seems as if the whole world is below you. If you like sunrise vistas the White Rim Overlook presents a great vantage point for watching the morning's first rays of light make their way into the deep recesses of the vast desert below the rim. Trail: Very easy trail.
