I've been dreaming about visiting the Canyonlands ever since we visited in May. We didn't spend much time in the park and I've been kicking myself ever since.

I feel like this part of the Canyonlands is super family friendly. There were a few hikes that were under half a mile and easy enough for all ages.

We did the Cave Springs Hike with our little family and it was perfect. Since we didn't have much time in the Canyonlands, we made one other stop: Big Spring Canyon Overlook.

It was beautiful (of course) and easy enough for the kids to toddle around.

There are some serious drop-offs (being an overlook and all) so be sure to keep close watch on them.

We loved exploring all the nooks and crevices. I love that my kids get to grow up playing in crazy places.

We probably spent maybe 45 minutes here. We could have spent much more, but we decided to squeeze in a quick to Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado. (I'll be posting about that later.)

So if you get a chance, you REALLY need to take the extra time and visit The Canyonlands Needles District. I feel like there is SOO much more that we need to explore. If you have any tips, I'd love to hear what your favorite places are.
