Motorcycled from Hans Flat Ranger Station many years ago and then hiked the overlook trail at the end. The overlook is amazing and I have wanted to go back and hike down into the maze

First to Review

Hiking in and around The Maze is a one of a kind adventure. Getting there is a challenge, but the views alone are worth the tedious drive! Be careful on the route from the Maze Overlook to the canyon floor via the Maze Overlook trail. It requires some class 4 scrambling and takes more time that you might think. The Chocolate Drops are viewable from many locations around the Maze Overlook, fun hiking without going all the way down into the canyon.
