Canyonlands National Park, Moab: 14 reviews and 28 photos
This is the other National Park within spittin' distance (or at least part of it is), and one I prefer to Arches due to a lot fewer bodies to contend with and slightly cooler temps. This park covers an enormous amount of ground with the closest and most-visited unit being Island in the Sky; about 32 miles from Moab. Needles, about 75 miles south, offers terrific hiking but not much for the casual visitor, and remote Horseshoe Canyon unit is 100 miles (32 of dirt road) and a 7-mile RT trek to the most valuable pictograph panels in the country. In between are countless primitive backcountry acres and slots for experienced backpackers and technical canyoneers.
Scenic-drivers, day-hikers, campers, bikers, distance-trekkers. shutterbugs: there's something here for everyone so see my Canyonlands pages for more information.
