An easy hike along the airy rim at the southern tip of Canyonlands National Park’s Island in the Sky plateau takes you to a lofty overlook. The Grand View Point Trail, following first the eastern rim and then the western rim of the Island in the Sky is an easy hike that ends at an airy viewpoint near the southern tip of the Island. The trail is mostly flat, crossing expanses of slickrock pavement and dirt sections. It may be hard to follow in a couple of spots, but the trail is generously marked with cairns. The first 300 feet of the trail from the parking area to Grand View Point Overlook is a concrete sidewalk that is wheelchair accessible.
