The restrooms are vault toilets, but they’re sturdy and neat. Water isn’t available at camp, but there’s a small trickle of a stream that runs adjacent to the road where you can pump and purify. Bring plenty of your own water in case the stream is dry. What’s not cobbled cliff walls or sandy light brown earth is probably a maple tree. A few evergreens dot the landscape here and there, but most of the green comes from maple trees of every size. For being so close to the Sanpete Valley floor, the canyon is much greener than you’d expect. Maple Canyon makes rock climbers feel like kids in a candy store. The sheer number and variety of routes available are enough to earn this canyon a reputation as one of the world’s best places to climb. An entire book has been written about just this canyon, detailing the different areas to climb, but any gear shop around should be able to point the uninitiated in the right direction.
