Canyonlands National Park
4 mi 6 km of trail — 1 Featured Ride
At times, the incredible canyons and buttes of Canyonlands National Park seem to defy the forces of gravity. Formed over many thousands of years by the persistence of the Colorado River and it's tributaries, the park is a testament to the power of water. While the entire park was carved from the same stark desert scape, there are four distinct regions of Canyonlands: the Maze, the Needles, and the Island in the Sky, in addition to the rivers that divide the park. Each region holds unique beauty and different opportunities for adventure and exploration.
