Far back in Canyonlands, the twisting sandstone cliffs hide ancient wonders above this scenic 4x4 trail. Combined with Davis Canyon, Lavender Canyon is a destination adventure for those wanting to escape everything. The engrossing sense of remoteness takes you over as you travel back into the canyons. The towering Bridger Jack Mesa is a permanent eastern border as the walls slowly close on both sides. The cliffs within the National Park hide ancient Native American structures, still safe to this day, tucked high up on the sandstone cliffs. These structures are so well preserved they appear as if they were made recently and not hundreds of years ago. Reaching and gaining legal access beyond the National Park Boundary makes all the effort and planning worth it. Timing is everything, for the permit and weather.
