There’s a rea­son The Maze has pre­vi­ously made BACK­PACKER’s list of “Amer­ica’s 10 Most Dan­ger­ous Hikes”: re­mote­ness, few marked trails, and head-spin­ning ter­rain make it a chal­lenge for the most savvy canyon hik­ers. Even sea­soned park rangers are re­quired to leave de­tailed itin­er­ar­ies and com­mu­ni­ca­tion plans be­fore set­ting out. Got the nav­i­ga­tion chops? Take the 5.8-mile Maze Over­look Trail from Maze Over­look (ac­ces­si­ble by 4WD), and bring along a 30-foot rope to lower back­packs down tricky spots. CON­TACT nps.gov/cany
