If you’ve watched the movie “127 Hours” with James Franco, then you get the picture. This isolated part of the Canyonlands National Park has been on many lists of extremely dangerous hikes. It’s so challenging, it only gets a couple of thousand adventurers a year. You can safely assume that very few of them hike there in the winter. The Maze is full of dead-end valleys. Even weathermen may have dofficulties locating themselves on a map. Floods and falling rocks are to be expected. Routes into the canyons are cairned, but routes through washes are often unmarked.
