The Needles district forms the southeast corner of Canyonlands and was named for the red and white banded sandstone pinnacles that dominate the area. The district's extensive trail system provides many opportunities for long day hikes and overnight trips. There are several foot trails, and four-wheel-drive roads lead to various attractions, such as Chesler Park.
