Upheaval Dome Trail is an easy hike in Canyonlands National Park that leads hikers to a beautiful rock formation. Upheaval Dome is one of the park's signature geologic features, yet there is not a consensus on what exactly caused the massive circular pit which is about a mile in diameter and more than thousand feet deep. Theories range from a meteor, a volcano to a giant salt dome that slowly eroded. Regardless of what created it, one thing is for certain… this hike is a crowd pleaser and offers wonderful scenery. This hike is located in the park's Island in the Sky 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.
