Local Attractions / Activities:
Located at the Utah-Arizona border, Canyon Point is a dream destination for outdoor enthusiasts. This Utah oasis features great hiking, spectacular natural wonders and views that stretch as far as the eye can see.
1. Take a hike. Canyon Point sits within the United States’ Four Corners region and offers some of the nation’s best hiking. Trails range from beginner to advanced and can take anywhere from one to five hours. Set out on the Cave Trail for a taste of one of the better known hikes in the area, which brings you to Ulrike’s Cave. Or, explore the Coyote Trail, where you’ll find great sunset views toward Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.
2. Gaze at the stars. One of the perks of being in the middle of the desert is that you’re far from the hubbub of big-city life. Here, night skies are so clear you’ll think you’re in a planetarium. Whether you’re from New York or L.A., the glittering stars above Canyon Point are worth the trip.
3. Venture to the Grand Canyon. You can’t visit the Four Corners region without exploring the country’s most famous natural wonder. The Grand Canyon is a two-and-a-half-hour drive from Canyon Point and is a must-see. Do everything from riding a donkey down the narrow paths to whitewater rafting on the Colorado River.
4. Explore the national parks. Canyon Point is surrounded by national parks, many of which offer stunning views of the surrounding desert. In addition to Grand Canyon National Park, this Utah town is also near Zion National Park (home to a diverse plant and animal population), Monument Valley’s iconic sandstone buttes, Bryce Canyon National Park’s hoodoos and Glen Canyon National Recreation Area.
