With over 60 miles in some of the most amazing scenery you’ve ever seen, The Needles District of Canyonlands is a must-not-miss adventure. The area gets its name from the sharp thin spires of Cedar Mesa sandstone rock that poke up toward the skies. There are long hikes like the Chesler Park and Druid Arch that can take a day. And there are shorter hikes that are great for families and single-day visitors like Cave Spring and Pothole Point.
Glen Canyon National Recreation Area And Lake Powell are a great place to check out right now. And with 1,800 miles of shoreline, you and your family will have a great time exploring the lake and taking in some sun. Also, while you’re there, be sure to take the trip to see Rainbow Bridge National Monument. The Rainbow Bridge itself one of the largest known bridges/arches in the world.
Edge of the Cedars State Park is built on the site of an ancient Native American village. And some of the original dwellings are still on-site. There’s even a reconstructed Kiva where religious ceremonies and political meetings took place for the ancient Pueblos. The museum itself is home to the largest collection of Ancestral Puebloan (Anasazi) pottery in the four corners region.
