Green River Overlook - Sunset location

Why I love it This beautiful location isn’t widely used; a Canyonlands secret! It’s west-facing which means you get that awesome perfect light all the way until sunset. Plus, you can’t beat candlestick tower in the background! This area is one of my all-time favorites.

Avoid this area if you’re on a tight schedule. It’s about an hour and ten minute drive from Moab. Also, if the forecast calls for all sun… with no shade options it’s not the best unless it’s party cloudy.
