Overview

Central route in the Maze District of Canyonlands N.P.

This trail features a spectacular descent down tight switchbacks, followed by a narrow shelf road along a high, scenic ridge. When you reach the end of the trail at Wpt. 05, you are a long way from a gas station. See Area 5 introduction on page 198. You can return the way you came or continue to Hwy. 95 via Trails 74 or 75. Read trail descriptions carefully. Also in the Area 5 introduction you’ll find rules and regulations for the Maze area and important driving tips.

Trail Ratings Defined

Switchbacks are very steep and narrow but, when dry, are generally passable by high-clearance, 4x4 stock vehicles with low-range gearing. Difficult or impassable after storms. Bentonite clay-surface road along ridge after Waypoint 04 is dangerously slippery when wet. Proceed with caution.

Scenic and long. Some smooth spots. Bad washboards early. Switchbacks are tight for my full size pickup.
