Canyonlands National Park

Search Moab Utah

Utah's largest national park, Canyonlands is known worldwide for its spectacular scenery and outstanding recreational opportunities. Four-wheel drive and mountain biking routes give visitors access to red rock pinnacles, cliffs and spires. The Green and Colorado rivers provide whitewater rafting; backpacking and camping can also be enjoyed within the park. The four districts are not directly linked by any roads, so travel between them requires two to six hours by car. Generally, people find it impractical to visit more than one or two districts in a single trip. Of the four sections which comprise this national park, the abstract stone Maze District is the only section which requires backcountry use permits year-round. The park's major entrances are located 22 miles north of Monticello off Hwy 191, and 35 miles northwest of Moab.

Visitor centers are open year-round. Park fees range from hiking to off road vehicles.
