Get a large view!

 

Canyonlands National Park, located near Moab, Utah and Arches National Park, was designated as a National Park on September 12, 1964. The park covers 527.5 mi² (1,366 km²).

 

Canyons carved into the Colorado Plateau by the Colorado River and Green River partition the area into three major districts:

 

* Island in the Sky to the north

* The Needles to the south-east

* The Maze to the west

 

In addition to the three major districts there is a detached unit to the north, called the Horseshoe Canyon Unit.
