Overview

Taylor Canyon Rim is a reasonably mellow trail on the border of Canyonlands National Park in Utah’s high desert. This dirt trail offers a diverse terrain that used to end at a rewarding overlook of Taylor Canyon, but closures in 2023 have cut the trail short. The trail runs along a sandy plateau with occasional rocky inclines. It’s said that on a clear day, it’s possible to see as far as the Henry Mountains to the west. This 4x4 trail provides access to the quiet backcountry and little-used campsites. What’s that you hear? Sweet silence. Make sure to pack for the unexpected, as you are not likely to see much company.
