North Point Road

North Point Road Professional Review and Guide

"North Point is the name given to a long, slender promontory of land that juts out in a northeasterly direction from Gordon Flats into the canyons on the west side of the Green River. The peninsula splits near its northern end, forming four separate fingers that protrude from the mesa like the prongs of a pitchfork. The road also divides here, with one spur continuing eastward to Panorama Point and the other turning west to an unusual sandstone formation called Cleopatra's Chair.

The trip described here goes first to Cleopatra's Chair that then doubles back to Panorama Point on the east rim of North Point. There are primitive campsites at both Cleopatra's Chair and Panorama Point, and many people do this trip as an overnighter. The Panorama Point Campsite is a particularly enjoyable place to spend a night. The site is situated high on the canyon rim above the Orange Cliffs, and the views into Elaterite Basin and Horse Canyon below are remarkable."

North Pt Raod is Bumpy but worth it givien you have the time it takes about 1.5 hrs each way. Panoram view is awesome and Cleo's Chari is cool I have seen it many times from the distance but cool to get up close and personal with it.
