Confluence Overlook Trail is a tough day hike or backpacking trip in Canyonlands National Park that leads to a stunning overlook where the Green and Colorado Rivers meet. This trail is fairly flat for most of its length, but it is also very exposed to the sun and there is no water available along it, so hiker need to carry all they need. Also, make sure to bring protection from the sun. This hike is located in the park's Needles District. Canyonlands National Park has two campgrounds, Squaw Flat Campground in The Needles District and Willow Flat Campground in the Island in the Sky District.
