Canyonlands National Park displays a colorful landscape eroded into countless canyons, mesas and buttes by the Colorado River and its tributaries. The Park is comprised of four distinct districts:

  • the Island in the Sky offering spectacular views of surrounding landscape from 1000ft above
  • the Needles affords an extensive trail system for long day hikes, overnight trips, or 4-wheeling
  • the Maze - remote and raw, the Maze requires self-sufficiency and time
  • the rivers the Colorado and Green Rivers flow through and meet in Canyonlands National Park

Pets are only allowed in campgrounds, on roads, or in parking lots, always on leash. Activities within the park are:

  • Auto touring
  • Backpacking
  • Biking
  • Camping
  • Climbing
  • Commercial tours
  • Hiking
  • Photography
  • Ranger-led programs
