Canyonlands National Park

Canyonlands National Park

Two mighty rivers, the Colorado and Green, have carved deep canyons in the heart of this rugged & remote area. Canyonlands is a huge national park that includes some of the most convoluted, remote, yet scenic areas in the continental United States.

The rivers here serve as highways to adventure. The Colorado offers some of the world's most exciting whitewater river rafting, with 26 mega-rapids in infamous Cataract Canyon. Other river sections in this area offer moderate rapids and flatwater.

Only a few roads penetrate Canyonlands National Park. Paved roads provide access to wonderful vistas. The vast majority of the park is accessible via jeep trails. Some areas are accessible only to hikers and backpackers.

This is classic mountain bike terrain and the park includes wonderful trails like the 100-mile-long White Rim in Island in the Sky, or the many roads/trails in the Needles.

Two information centers serve visitors, one on each of the paved access roads. A small number of developed campsites are available. There are no other services available in Canyonlands National Park, but excellent lodging, restaurants and services can be obtained in the nearby communities.
