A Wilderness of Rock

Canyonlands preserves an immense wilderness of rock at the heart of the Colorado Plateau.

Water and gravity have been the prime architects of this land, cutting this area into hundrds of colorful canyons, mesas, buttes, arches and spires.

At center stage are the Green and Colorado rivers which carve this area into three very different regions.
  • The Island in The Sky
  • The Maze
  • The Needles
