Canyonlands NP- Maze District

Come explore with me the beautiful Maze District in Canyonlands Nation Park, Utah. Beginning April 26th and ending April 30th we will spend 4 nights in one of the most remote locations you can get by vehicle. This is not a trip for the in-experienced off road driver or first time adventurer. The plan is to enter by Hans Flat Ranger station and exit via the Hite/95 road, 1/2 day drives between camping spots will allow for sight seeing and exploration. Expect beautiful views, high exposure on shelf roads, very rough terrain, no amenities, with experiences and memory's to keep you wanting to come back for more. My permit only allows 3 vehicles total and up to 9 people so I have space for 2 more vehicles and 7 people (sorry no Pets).

Rally Point Notes:

Meet in Green River, UT on the morning of April 26th. After a quick drivers meeting and vehicle check convoy to Hans Flat Ranger Station (approx 84miles). Check in with the Rangers to finalize permit. There is a Leave-No-Trace ethic expected so whatever we bring in we take out, including our poop (Rangers require a Reusable Sanitary Toilet)

Monday night: Panorama Point (approx 10 mi)

Tuesday night: Happy Canyon (approx 19 mi)

Wednesday night: Doll House-3 (approx 31 mi)

Thursday night: The Wall (approx 7 mi)

Friday- Drive Out via Hite/95 road (approx 45 miles from The Wall to pavement)

This is a very remote location along rough 4x4 trails. Stock off-road vehicles not recommended unless you don't mind a little under-carriage damage. There are no amenities past the Ranger Station so be prepared to bring all the food, water and fuel you will need for the week. Towing costs can exceed $2000 if there is a vehicle problem we can't repair or tow from the trail. Medical emergencies can take hours or days to get to a hospital. We will have GPS In-Reach communication and maybe HAM but don't expect quick response times, again this is very remote (no cell service)

Required Personal Gear: A good attitude! ("No plan lasts past first contact.") Everything else is just details.

Recommended Personal Gear: Cold weather clothes and sleep system. Nights can get below freezing and high winds, snow and rain can happen. Camera.

Required Vehicle Gear: Full Size spare tire with jack and wrench, Front and Rear Tow points

Recommended Vehicle Gear: Extra Fuel, Tools, spare Hoses/Belts, Fuses, Air Compressor, Recovery Gear (tow strap, shackles, etc)

Check for updates to this page as I think of things or in response to questions. Hope to see you on the trail!
