For day hikers and backpackers, Canyonlands National Park is a dream come true. The Needles district has more hiking trails (about 74 miles) and a better variety of trails than the Island in the Sky and Maze districts but Island in the Sky offers a variety of well-maintained trails including some family-friendly hikes and the famous Mesa Arch.
