Canyonlands invites you to explore a wilderness of countless canyons and fantastically formed buttes carved by the Colorado River and its tributaries. Rivers divide the park into four districts: Island in the Sky, The Needles, The Maze, and the rivers themselves. These areas share a primitive desert atmosphere, but each offers different opportunities for sightseeing and adventure. Read More

Visiting in Winter
Canyonlands is open year-round, but services are reduced in winter. Conditions can change rapidly; trails may be slippery when snowy or icy.
Hydration is essential in the desert, even in winter. Drink 1 gallon (4 L) of water per day. There are few places to get water in the park.
Plan your visit, and learn about the park with books, maps, and guides from the Canyonlands Natural History Association.
It is your responsibility to know park regulations when you visit.
