The Charlie Horse Needle (right) from the approach...


Charlie Horse Needle is a proud tower off of the White Rim trail, north of the Green River. This is the tallest and rightmost of 3 obvious towers in a group high on the hillside above the river.

Getting There 

Coming from 191, drive south on 313 towards Canyonlands. About 12 miles down 313, and just past a cattle guard, turn right on Mineral Basin Road. Be careful not to take the road just a 1/4 mile earlier that goes past the Horsethief campground. Drive about 12 more miles and descend the switchbacks down to the river. Make a left and drive a couple of miles to the Park border. Mark your odometer and drive 1.2 miles past the park boundary. On your left you will see the towers up a wash.
