Canyonlands National Park

The vast Utah canyons comprise Canyonlands National Park, where you can pack up your horse, burro or mule and adventure throughout Horseshoe Canyon and the backcountry roads. Canyonlands gives riders a unique opportunity to brave the challenging roads and trails for days to finally reach the least accessible — but quite possibly the most breathtaking area of the park — the Maze (pictured at left).
