While we call this “Canyonlands Loop”, it’s actually 3 trails in one, making for a nice long loop and day trip. You’ll start at the bottom of Long Canyon, winding your way up out of the canyon and to the top of a mesa. From there you’ll be back on pavement for a short time to enter Canyonlands National Park. A separate park fee is required for entrance. Just after the park entrance, you’ll drop down onto Shafer Road and the infamous Shafer Switchbacks towards the White Rim. Take in the scenic views before descending down onto Potash Road.
