Flint Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Under the Ledge is a term local cowboys once used to identify the canyon country east of the Orange Cliffs in Canyonlands National Park. The area has subsequently been renamed the Maze District, but this jeep ride will clearly demonstrate how appropriate the older term was. From Hans Flat Ranger Station the road heads south along the top of the mesa, occasionally approaching the edge of the rim for dramatic views into the canyons below.

Then, after 12.4 miles of relatively easy driving, the road abruptly turns east to descend through a series of steep, rocky switchbacks that lead into the Under the Ledge country. This steep section of road, known as the Flint Trail, is the only place where it is possible to descend with a car below the Orange Cliffs. The trail was well known during most of the last century; it was frequently used by cattle ranchers to gain access to the pastures Under the Ledge."
