“Beautiful formation”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

The West is filled with lovely vistas, and the Spider Rock should be considered one of them. The overlook from the South Rim Drive is very accessible with multiple views to the rock.

“Best overlook.”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

This was the first overlook we hit in the morning sunshine. It was awesome. I would recommend this one to everyone.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

A great photo op late in the afternoon. It is the last of the seven overlooks on the South Rim and is well worth the extra miles to visit.

“The main event!”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Spider Rock is the main attraction if you are only viewing the canyon from the rim. It is stunning. Enjoy.

“Spider Rock - Takes your breath away!!”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

We had already visited quite a few of the parks in Utah/Arizona (Bryce, Zion, Monument Valley, Capitol Reef) and thought we had seen the best of the area had to offer. Canyon de Chelley is in a class all its own. The drive along the south rim just to see Spider Rock is worth the drive to get here. I have seen many vistas over the years but Spider Rock is very special indeed. Spider Rock in the late afternoon bathed in the soft golden light is a sight to behold!! The whole vista comprising Spider Rock, the Valley and the colourful towering rock walls are breathtaking. A 'must see' activity for any visitor to the area.
