Notes

Whale Rock Trail is an easy hike Canyonlands National Park that features incredible views. This trail gives hikers panoramic views of the Island in the Sky district. The climb up the massive whale shaped sandstone bluff is great choice for hikers with kids, but there is a few drop offs so keep an eye on the little hikers. Canyonlands National Park has two campgrounds, Squaw Flat Campground in The Needles District and Willow Flat Campground in the Island in the Sky District.
