How to read the Maze Maps:
Clicking on the map above will bring you to Caltopo.com, where you can see the map above on many base layers (like google maps, USGS topos, satellite, etc. Click on the “Open in Caltopo” link, then check out the bar at the top right of the map and lick “satellite +1”, to open the dropdown menu, then again on “satellite to change the base layer) and you can play around with many views of my route. The blue line is my ride into camp once I get off highway 24. The purple lines are my hiking routes, and you can hover over them to embolden the lines and see the directional arrows that show which way I’m going, though there is some overlap. Click on the routes and click again on “profile” to see the elevation profile on each route. All of my routes will start at my base camp at Twin Corral Box Canyon, where I will leave my motorcycle and all of my resupplies. The first route I will do is the loop titled Horseshoe/ Millard Canyon, which includes a day of paddling down the green river, and will go in a clockwise direction. The route will likely be between 100-120 miles and I expect it to take 7-8 days. When I get back to camp after each route, I will resupply from my motorcycle before heading back out. The second route is titled “MAZE” and consists of short hike down North Trail Canyon to Elaterite Basin, over “The Gap”, and down into South Fork Horse Canyon towards the Green River, around Pete’s Mesa, and on the ridge to the east of Jasper Canyon, down Water Canyon to the Doll House, a loop of Surprise Valley, then down into Ernie’s Country with an out and back to Sunken Valley behind the giant Toreva block at rapid 15 in Cataract Canyon, up Wide Valley, Sweet Alice Canyon, over Land of Standing Rocks, down Pictograph Fork, all the way to Horse Canyon, back up to the top, North Trail again back to camp. The route will likely be between 120-135 miles and I expect it to take 8-9 days. The third route is titled “happy Canyon/Maze and has me dropping into French Spring Canyon, then following an arm of Happy Canyon, up to the top, back down the flint trail, then the Golden Stairs, to Ernie’s Country and up Sand Tank Canyon, up to the Land of Standing Rocks, to the Chocolate Drops, crossing pictograph fork up to the top of Pete’s Mesa, down the Northeast side, and along the bench above the Green River all the way to Bonita Bend, across the Millard Canyon Benches and back to North Trail Canyon and camp. This route will likely be between 120-135 miles and I expect it to take 8-9 days. If you;d like to see where I am, and where I’ve been already, check the map below. And if that embedded map doesn’t work, click on the link above the caltopo map and go to the Spot Device site to get the most recent updates. Looking forward to getting out there, and providing a thorough trip report upon my return. Much love.
