This ranger station lies on the northwestern boundary of Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. It serves both The Maze of Canyonlands and northern Glen Canyon visitors. The site is open year-round on a daily basis from 8:00 to 4:30. (It is closed some winter holidays.) Visitors will find rangers on duty at the Hans Flat Ranger Station with current road and trail information. There is also a small sales area at this site where visitors can purchase books and maps about the area. There are no amenities at this site so visitors should bring water and supplies for their endeavor in the Maze.
