Tucked away into the most remote section of wonderfully secluded Canyonlands National Park, The Maze is one of the biggest and best of the last: a rarely traveled, wholly inaccessible wilderness. Among the wildest, least trammeled landscapes of size in the continental United States. The Maze’s hypnotic labyrinth, a geologic fusion of cliffs, meandering canyons, and inspiring buttes provide unparalleled riding, folded into a truly unforgettable adventure.
Our journey into this lost land of canyon and High Desert begins with a descent down the historic Flint Trail. The curve of the canyons delivers us in equally fast and spectacular fashion to the Maze Overlook. There, breathtaking beauty beckons us further along our fantastic, self-propelled voyage.
A challenging hike through the heart of The Maze brings us to “The Harvest Scene”: a nearly life-sized series of pictographs. Etched into the narrow sandstone walls, their origin traces back from two to 4,000-years. The next 72-hours begin at a heady 7700-ft., dropping down to 3700-ft, and ultimately a sublime landing on the shores of Lake Powell. We traverse amongst Peregrine falcon aerie and Bighorn sheep habitat in the spectacular Doll’s House section, then through the Land of the Standing Rocks.
Bear in mind, access to this outback is severely limited. To hike in and out would easily consume a full two days. But as the only outfitter in the world to offer such an inclusive tour of the Maze, our rugged expedition vehicle is engineered to meet the demands of this area’s extreme terrain.
On the second half of our Maze tour, we head out on the Colorado River. Our favorite guides will make you feel right at home! Rafting through calm water provides solitude deep in the canyons, while occasional rapids provide incredible adventure. The trip winds down wonderfully at bejeweled Lake Powell, its pure blue-green water framed if not dramatically contrasted with rich red cliffs and coves. This voyage of beauty and discovery is an excellent way to cap off our Maze Mountain Bike Tour.
