Backcountry Travel Advisory
Backcountry driving conditions can change rapidly after rain or snow. High-clearance, four-wheel-drive vehicles are recommended. All drivers should carry the following items:
• At least one full-size spare tire
• Extra gas
• Extra water
• High-lift jack
• Chains for all four tires (especially from October through April)
Visitors caught in the backcountry with disabled vehicles can expect commercial towing fees in excess of $1,000. Most backcountry roads in Canyonlands require high-clearance, four-wheel-drive vehicles.
