So expansive it’s divided into four districts, Canyonlands delivers a quintessential desert experience: deep canyons, prehistoric rock art, rivers, and sweeping overlooks.
Top 3 Things to Do at Canyonlands National Park
1. Watch the Sunrise at Mesa Arch
Tucked in the park is the Mesa Arch trail, an easy, half-mile hike roundtrip. When you arrive at the arch, which faces east, watch the sun come up, washing the entire desert floor with shades of pink and orange.
2. Bike on Slickrock
The Moab area including Arches and Canyonlands national parks offers some of the best end-over opportunities around and of course, made its name as the home to the best mountain biking on Earth. Beginners as well as experienced bikers can rent bikes or take a guided tour that can test your limits.
3. Watch for Wildlife
sheep take residence in the canyons and buttes, along with mule deer, kangaroo rats, and coyote. Look up for red-tailed hawks.
