Question Canyonlands NP

Anybody ever been there? It was just on the cover of Backpacker Magazine. The pictures were beautiful. The article also said that not many people go there so the solitude would be really nice. I was thinking of taking 5 days out there in the backcountry in the spring. A nice break from the Midwestern flatland.

The NPS website has some good starting place info, but anyone with firsthand experience? I'm completely self sufficient for about a week, so I'm looking for some backcountry insight.

I've been to nearly every NP in the country. Canyonlands is in the top 3 for sure. Aside from being beautiful and divided into a few 'districts' with completely different scenery, it is in fact one of the least visited parks in the system. I try to go there every chance I get. Its as cool as you think.

Which district do you find yourself going to most? Least?

I went to Isle Royal NP this fall for the solitude. Also one of the least visited nat'l parks.

Well, Island in the Sky is the most accessible. The views are incredible. The Needles district is accessible by regular roads too (at least some of it)... I think the Maze district is the most remote and pretty much back country access only. This is the only portion I haven't seen much of... While you are in the area, be sure to check out Arches NP if you can. Its pretty cool in general.

I would have the 2nd the fact that is one of the coolest places I have even been. I have been to the moab area about 10 times, it is one of best places to go and find out stuff about your self. You can do just about everything there, bike, hike, rafting, four wheeling, camp, all kinds of things. If you can go, and love the outdoors do it, you will never forget your time there.
Have a great time!!

I used to live in Telluride and went to canyonlands quite a bit. I miss it immensely. I try and go back every year but that doesn't always work out. I hate people so for me it is a great place to avoid them. Pictures do not do it justice. Go and check it out, you won't be dissapointed
