General Information

Description - The Maze is literally a puzzle of canyons in a remote area of southeastern Utah. The attraction of the area is solitude, which you will find by traveling long distances on rough four-wheel drive roads that lead to the trailheads. In addition to the natural beauty of the Maze, explorers will find ancient ruins and rock art in the area.

Attractions - The Maze is the least developed of the three districts of Canyonlands National Park. It is maintained in conjunction with Glen Canyon National Recreation Area with Hans Flat Ranger Station serving as the only information center west of the rivers. Camping facilities are limited to designated, but primitive, sites near trailheads. There is no water available in the Maze and no facilities, so hikers and campers need to bring all of their own supplies.

Recreation - This site is a wonderland for the experienced explorer. Few people make backpacking and hiking in this area a true wilderness experience. Camping is primitive and four-wheel driving necessary for many trails.

Climate - The climate of this area of the park is arid fewer than 15 inches of rainfall per year. The fall and spring are the most pleasant times to visit Canyonlands, and also the most crowded, with warm days and cool nights. Summer brings very hot days. In winter expect warm days and very cold nights.

Location - The Maze district of Canyonlands National Park is located west of the Green and Colorado Rivers. It is accessible, via several county roads, from Utah Highway 24 to the west. A four-wheel drive vehicle is recommended for travel in the area, although under dry weather conditions a two-wheel drive vehicle can reach two trailheads.
