Canyonlands National Park: Favorite Jeep Roads & Hiking Trails

Most of what we see in Canyonlands National Park today took millions of years to create, and on the scale of human experience it is often difficult to comprehend the geologic processes that produced it. The mesas, the canyons, and the dazzling rock formations were sculpted almost entirely by the slow but unrelenting erosive action of wind and water. The Island in the Sky district does, however, have one geologic artifact that was created by a rare force of nature powerful enough to do in minutes what would normally take eons to accomplish. T

Trail: Much of the trail is not well marked, but the route is easy to follow. There is usually water in Syncline Valley, 4.1 miles from the trailhead, but it must be purified before drinking.

Hiking Canyonlands and Arches National Parks

This is the longest hike on a trail accessed by White Rim Road. It’s a great trail, mostly on packed sand. The first part of Upheaval Canyon is a broad open valley, and the trail cuts off the wide meanders. After the first mile or so, it drops into the dry wash.

The broad valley you saw on the first part of the hike gradually becomes a narrow, twisting canyon just before you reach the junction with the Syncline Loop Trail.This hike also makes a fairly easy overnighter, with a backcountry campsite
located near the junction with the Syncline Loop Trail.
