Located in the most remote district of Canyonlands National Park, the Maze, unique in the world, was made famous by Edward Abbey's The Monkey Wrench Gang. The vast open skies and magical rock formations are best appreciated from the saddle of your mountain bike. We begin our guided trip of the Maze at Hans Flat with incredible views of the many layers below. Over the next few days, we will make our way down the Flint Trail to camp at the Maze Overlook. From here we will hike down into the convoluted canyons which give the Maze its name. Later we will ride to the Land of Standing Rocks, completing our journey with a ride along the Orange Cliffs. As we ride through this remote and primarily untouched landscape, we will learn how to travel gently and with minimum impact. This is nature at its biggest and finest. The riding in the Maze includes rolling technical doubletrack. There is a 28-mile unsupported day. The route results in a net descent to finish on the shores of Lake Powell. The Maze is a true Canyon Country mountain biking experience. Western Spirit Cycling is an authorized concessioner in Canyonlands National Park.
