After four days of biking in this remote region of Canyonlands, you may choose not to go back home. The Maze bike route is the most technically challenging route we offer. This undeveloped dirt road has steep down-hills, loose rocks, sand, and ruts. Riders who have no off-road bicycling experience, or who are not athletic will most likely find this trip too challenging. All riders should prepare for the trip by riding their bike on a regular basis prior to the trip.

Sample Itinerary:

Day 1: Meet group at Holiday River Expeditions headquarters in Green River, Utah. A three-hour van ride to Bagpipe Butte Overlook, where we will begin biking. The first day’s ride will take the group down the Flint Trail, the most technically difficult riding of the trip . . . those with less experience will feel no shame in walking a short stretch of this mile-long descent into the country the old-timers call “under the Ledge”. The trail will take once more serious descent off the Flint Cove onto the White rim Sandstone layer, where it will be wide open riding to the Maze Overlook, our camp for the night. We bike around 20 miles this day and lose about 1700 feet of elevation.

Day 2: We will descend by foot this morning into the labyrinths called the Maze. A half day walk through time will take us past the prehistoric Indian panel called The Harvest Scene a message left a thousand years ago by the Anasazi-The Ancient Ones. We will exit the Maze in the Land of Standing Rocks where our bikes will be waiting for the afternoon ride to camp.

Day 3: Lizard Rock, Chimney Rock, the Wall, the Plug, and The Fins are a few of the countless rock monuments that make this days ride border on the surreal. Depending on group desires, this days riding will cover between 10 and 30 miles with plenty of viewpoints to stop and garner inspiration.

Day 4: Mother Nature serves up wide-open riding down gradual slopes and through occasional dips into desert washes. Shortly after lunch the road emerges at Lake Powell and Hite Marina. The passenger van will meet us for a two-hour ride back to Green River, Utah.
