The Maze District – Canyonlands

The Maze District of Canyonlands NP is by far the most Remote and least visited part of the Park.  The park entrance is about 60 miles from the nearest gas, in Green River UT.  When you enter the Ranger tells you that you need to be able to “Rescue Yourself” and “You’re on you Own” if you get into trouble.  The camping is “Primitive”, no facilities.  Camping is allowed at designated campsites, permits required.  Even though it is very remote, the Maze is very popular with backpackers, mountain bikers and 4 Wheelers.  It is often difficult to get a permit because they are so limited.
