Green and Colorado Rivers Overlook Professional Review and Guide

"For colorful desert scenery it is hard to beat this popular hike. The normally light colored Cedar Mesa Sandstone has a rich red layer running through it in this area, which makes it much more colorful than the same formation in the nearby Maze.

Beginning with the impressive Dollhouse, at the beginning of the trail, the rock formations along this hike are truly magnificent. They are particularly pretty in the late afternoon when the sunlight tends to enhance the red bands in the sandstone. Trail: Easy, well marked trail, but there is no water so be sure to carry plenty."
