Canyonlands: The Needles Section
The Needles Section of Canyonlands National Park, Utah is all but inaccessible except for 4-wheel drive, high clearance vehicles. Canyonlands National Park is divided into three distinct areas by the Colorado and Green Rivers. I am most familiar with the section called the Island in the Sky which is adjacent to Dead Horse Point State Park, The other section called, the Maze, is even more remote. I have driven a thousands of miles on the back roads of Arizona and Utah. There are few places I could not get to in Arizona with my 2-wheel drive truck, but there are lots of places in Utah that really do require 4-wheel drive vehicles.
