Canyonlands National Park

Canyonlands National Park Island in the Sky District and visitor center are open. Visitor Center hours are 9 am to 4 pm Friday - Tuesday (closed Wednesday & Thursdays). Trails may be snow-covered and icy. Be safe and enjoy. We will update this information as changes occur.

SPECIAL NOTE: We’re all concerned about the welfare of our public lands during the partial government shutdown. CNHA has received several inquiries about donations. At this time, because of current fundraising restrictions, CNHA is not able to set up a special purpose fund to support the parks during the shutdown. However, we are able to accept donations to our general fund that support education and research in the parks.
   The funds that CNHA recently donated to reopen the visitor centers at Arches and Canyonlands will in reality, reduce the monies that CNHA will be able to give to the parks for their interpretive and educational needs. If you choose to make a donation to CNHA, you will be supporting the parks and helping us replenish these funds.

   Though we cannot restrict donations to specifically help in the shutdown, we do use all donations to support our local public lands.
Here is a link to our donations web page.
   We appreciate your support of public lands during this challenging time.

Canyonlands National Park

From the Rivers to the Sky

At the center of Canyonlands National Park's red rock wilderness are two great canyons, carved by the Colorado and Green Rivers. The rivers divide the park into four districts: Island in the Sky, Needles, the Maze, and the rivers themselves. The four districts are not directly linked by roads, so travel between them requires two to six hours by car. The Horseshoe Canyon Unit contains some of the most significant rock art in North America.

Each district has its own character and offers different opportunities for exploration
and encounters with natural and cultural history.
