Slickrock Foot Trail: Canyonlands National Park Professional Review and Guide

"A scenic trip through the geology of the Canyonlands. If you’re a beginner or experienced hiker with a half day to spend in the Needles District, the Slickrock Foot Trail is an excellent way to enjoy it. Many hikes in the Needles follow canyon bottoms, but this trail stays high and gives an overall perspective of the entire southeastern corner of Canyonlands National Park.

I agree with the trail guide's introduction to this trail. I really enjoy the Needles District of Canyonlands, and if you only have a half-day to spend, the Slickrock Foot Trail would be a great way to spend it. The way-finding is easy, the views are amazing, and there is a fair bit of opportunity to scramble around on the rocks off-trail to find different viewpoints. You'll get a good view of both the Needles and one of the canyons that cuts through the district.
