Hans Flat Ranger Station Review

This remote outpost is a treasure trove of books, maps, and other documents about the unforgiving Maze District of Canyonlands. The slot canyons, pictographs, and myriad rock formations are tempting, but you need to know what you're doing. The rangers will be direct with you—inexperienced off-road drivers and backpackers can get themselves into serious trouble in the Maze. Just to get here you must drive 46 miles on a dirt road that is sometimes impassable even to 4X4 vehicles. There's a pit toilet, but no water, food, or services of any kind. If you're headed for the backcountry, inquire about new reservation policies effective beginning in 2013.
