Canyonlands National Park

Canyonlands National Park lies in southeastern Utah, straddling the confluence of the Colorado and Green Rivers. Divided into three distinct sections – Island in the Sky, Needles, and The Maze, Canyonlands is home to some of the most remote territory in the entire country. Hikes here show off the wide-open canyon vistas you’d expect, along with arches, pinnacles, and ancient impact craters – all with a level of peace and solitude that you’ll find tough to beat.
