"Upheaval Dome (Island in the Sky)" Canyonlands National Park Things to Do Tip by Karnubawax

Canyonlands National Park Things to Do: 148 reviews and 297 photos


To be honest, I found the Upheaval Dome hike somewhat of a letdown after the gorgeous overlooks, but it is kind of unique nonetheless. The trail is about a mile or so each way, and about 4 miles round trip to see it from the south side, where the view is better. Take lots of water, of course, and if you don't feel up to it, don't feel too bad about skipping it.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
