About Canyonlands National Park
Located in the state of Utah, Canyonlands is a national park, formed around the River Colorado in the United States. The Park evolved into a recreational area from 2007, and is visited by 450,000 people every year for hiking, backpacking, camping, mountain biking, and rock climbing. The Canyonlands cover a huge part of Southern Utah, and comprises of the 4 districts: the Islands in the Sky, the Maze, the Needles, and the Rivers Colorado and the Green. The Islands in the Sky and the Needles attract a large crowd, and the Maze and Rivers attract the least crowd, for rafting and kayaking.
Established as a national park in 1964, Canyonlands covers 227,598 acres of arches, table hills, white and red rock columns, canyons, clefts, and pinnacles. The Canyonlands is great for backpacking, with rugged pathways, sand pillars, and mountainous trails, with zero roads and bridges. Vegetation is sparse, and the Park is home to Kangaroo, Mountain Lions, Bears, Desert Coyotes, Sheep, Rattlesnakes, Lizards, and Deer. Around 270 species of birds are found at Canyonlands namely Pelicans, Ducks, Hawks, Kingfishers, and many others. The Park is one of the most remote lands in the United States, and is home to the world’s largest canyon, Cataract Canyon.
Driving through the Canyonlands, the trail is a good 34-mile stretch, and visitors typically spend a full-day, exploring the scenic visuals of the Park.
