The Maze MTB Tour
Tucked away into the most remote section of wonderfully secluded Canyonlands National Park, The Maze is one of the biggest and best of the last: a rarely traveled, wholly inaccessible wilderness. The Maze’s hypnotic labyrinth, a geologic fusion of cliffs, meandering canyons, and inspiring buttes provide unparalleled riding, folded into a truly unforgettable adventure over 5 fantastic days.

Your journey into this lost land of canyons and High Desert begins with a descent down the historic Flint Trail. The curve of the canyons delivers you in equally fast and spectacular fashion to the Maze Overlook. There, breathtaking beauty beckons further along the incredible self-propelled voyage.
A challenging hike through the heart of The Maze brings you to “The Harvest Scene”: a nearly life-sized series of pictographs. Etched into the narrow sandstone walls, their origin traces back from two to 4,000-years. The next 72-hours begin at a heady 7700-ft., dropping down to 3700-ft, and ultimately a sublime landing on the shores of Lake Powell. You'll traverse amongst Peregrine falcon aerie and Bighorn sheep habitat in the spectacular Doll’s House section, then through the Land of the Standing Rocks.
Bear in mind, access to this outback is severely limited. To hike in and out would easily consume a full two days. But as the only tour operator in the world to offer such an inclusive tour of the Maze, their rugged expedition vehicle is engineered to meet the demands of this area’s extreme terrain. After reaching Lake Powell, a chartered tour plane will ferry the group out of the Maze. The flight-path takes you back over the course you just conquered on bike and foot, providing once-in-a-lifetime views and aerial photo opportunities.
From incomparable cultural legacies to moderately challenging cycling terrain, the Maze is rated “E” for everyone. Due to Canyonlands National Park’s use and access guidelines, plus the very nature of the environment here, this trip is limited to seven guests. This trip is suitable for families with older kids, solos, couples & friends.
Private/custom tours/family getaways are also possible outside of the specified dates. Please contact us for pricing and availability.
