Canyonlands National Park

4.3
Geologic Formations · Lookouts · Hiking Trails
Canyonlands National Park features myriad canyons and buttes that the Colorado River, Green River, and their tributaries have carved over millions of years in hues of red and orange. The dry desert climate and varied terrain draw recreation enthusiasts of various types, including hikers, backpackers, mountain bikers, four-wheel drivers, paddlers, and anglers. The park includes four districts: Island in the Sky, which is known for its expansive views and scenic drives; the Needles, named for the area's tall sandstone spires (it requires hiking or a four-wheel drive vehicle to visit its remote attractions); the Maze, an even more remote area with steep-walled canyons; and the Rivers, where you can navigate the park by water. Nearly 60 percent of park visitors stick to Island in the Sky; the other areas attract those looking for more of a backcountry experience. Arrange all the small, but important details of your Canyonlands National Park trip itinerary using our United States vacation planner.
