The Maze



There's a reason it's called the Maze. A remote western section of Canyonlands, this place of crazy, twisting canyons is visited only by experienced - and prepared - desert travelers. Whether via the Green River, or a dirt road off Highway 24, the Maze requires 4WD, water, and serious planning. For those that make it though, the colorful canyons and pristine wilderness are well worth the trip. So remote that its Hans Flat facilities are run on solar power, just getting to the ranger station takes effort. Can you use a GPS, still know how to read a map, and figure out what might be wrong with your car if it suddenly dies on the rough dirt road leading in to the Maze? Then you're probably qualified to check out the Chocolate Drops or the Doll House, just two of the many fascinating and fancifully-named rock formations hidden out in the Maze. But plan your trip carefully and in advance, and you could be in for a breathtaking experience of a lifetime as you snake through the canyons, huff to the tops of spectacular viewpoints, and see natural beauties that very few others have beheld.
