Utah's Canyonlands hide countless Native American artworks and ancient structures throughout its endless labyrinth of canyons. Deep within Davis Canyon, you can escape the crowds and have a few of the best-preserved historic sites all to yourself. These are the unmarked sites you won't find on any travel brochures. The granary on the cliff at Waypoint 9 is a nice stop with an exciting climb to view the precariously stacked stone structures. You can hike further into Davis Canyon to view the extremely well-preserved Five-Faces pictograph at the trail's end. Believed to have been left behind by the Anasazi hundreds of years ago, the stone structures and artwork found all over the area are exceptionally well preserved. Combining Davis and Lavender Canyons is a beautiful all-day or weekend adventure within a mesmerizing landscape.
