Many consider Hatch Point the best overlook campsite in the area, but getting there comes with a price. The 6.4-mile, one-hour, one-way, bumpy ride rewards you with breathtaking views of the Canyonlands and the twisting Colorado River far below. The rocky trail has one short section of 10 to 12-inch vertical ledges requiring high clearance and low-range gearing. Countless little rock ledges require slow speed, 4x4, and durable offroad-type tires. Once at the end, you can choose from a couple of campsites and sit back to enjoy the fantastic views. Prepare for winds. You must bring your firewood. An old vault toilet, picnic table, and rock fire ring are at the circle turn-around.
