Upheaval Dome Overlook trail is a very enjoyable hike. The upheaval dome is of great interest because there are different theories on to what may have caused the dome. This trail is about 3 kms long and should take about 1 hour to complete; this distance is to the second overlook.

From the parking area, pick up the trail. It will be gaining a bit of elevation to the viewpoint. Stop at the first view point and read the explanation. To get to the second view point keep following the trail, it will head down for a bit and there is even some steps carved in the rock to help you out. Once again, the second overlook should be very quiet as not many people venture this far.

Directions:

Make your way to Canyonlands National Park and go in the Island in the Sky entrance way. From I70 it is 73 kms to the visitor centre. From the visitor centre head 10 kms to the intersection and veer right. Head along here for 8 kms and park at the end in the upheaval dome parking lot.
