Description

Get ready to be taken on an other-worldly visual experience along the Canyon Rim Trail.

Beginning alongside the visitor center, follow the trail along the canyon rim as you traverse scrubby desert landscapes to an overlook near Sentinel Spire. Behold the striking desert monoliths before you, towering hundreds of feet above the valley floor amidst a colorful canvas of sandstone walls.

Continuing on from Sentinel Spire, ascend gently to a junction with the Window Rock Trail. At this point, you have two options: either return the way you came, or continue along the Window Rock Trail before heading back along the Canyon Rim Trail.

Flora & Fauna

Utah juniper, pinyon pine, and sage are in abundance along the canyon rim.
