Trail Head: 38.177, -109.815
Trail Type: Hiking
Length: 2.8 miles round trip
The trailhead is located near the end of the Big Springs Overlook Road in The Needles District of Canyonlands National Park.
The middle part of the hike can be done as a loop, allowing visitors to see off both sides of the slickrock peninsula.
From the end of the loop portion, hikers can continue another 0.3 miles out to the end of the slickrock peninsula.
The trail ends at a majestic viewpoint, with canyon views in three directions. The route is shorter if visitors elect not to hike the loop, or not to follow the trail out to the end of the peninsula.
