Holiday’s bike trip into Canyonlands’ Maze District takes you into an impossibly beautiful landscape. Steep canyons step down across the desert in a tangle of white, pink, red, and orange sandstone. Pinnacles, buttes, and jagged mesas stretch out as far as you can see. This is rugged country. The first European explorers who encountered the Maze took long detours to avoid the network of sheer-walled canyons. Native people, however, called this land home for millennia before that, leaving pictographs and granaries deep within the canyons. Wild, remote, and absolutely spectacular, this may be Utah’s ultimate multi-day bike trip.
Our professional guides will lead you on a ride that seems to drop off the edge of the world. Bike along double-track 4×4 roads with our support van following behind. Camp out on the edges of mesas with views that go forever. Explore Utah’s red rock desert on an active, human-powered vacation. This is the least-visited part of Canyonlands National Park, and it is strictly regulated to preserve its wilderness values. Group sizes are small and it’s not unusual to bike all day without even seeing another group. We offer Maze bike trips in the spring and fall.
Special for 2021: we’re pleased to offer a special stargazing bike trip into the Maze. Join a star expert from Salt Lake City’s Clark Planetarium and experience the cosmic majesty of one of Utah’s International Dark Sky Parks.

“Our group of college friends gets together every year for a reunion and this year’s trip in the Maze was exceptional. Every detail was thought out and the guides took care of everything. All we had to do was ride and enjoy each other’s company. Thank you for a great trip. The riding, the meals, the gear all top notch.” (D. Mansfield)
