Description

Maple Canyon is conglomerate rock with embedded, rounded clasts (aka cobbles) ranging in size from pebbles to boulders. The walls have a wide range of holds from bombers to slopers, making the climbing unique and challenging. Mostly sport climbing with very little trad. Camping is available in Maple Canyon for $10 per night. Maple lies mostly on public land within the Uinta National Forest, but some of the most popular climbs are in privately-owned Box Canyon. There is a day-use fee of $5 per car in the national forest area. The nearest beer is in Mount Pleasant. There is a bar and a Mexican restaurant that serves beer.

Maple Canyon is dog-friendly, with the exception of the privately-owned Box Canyon. Please own responsibly.

Getting There

Exit 225 on I-I5 (Nephi 100 N exit). East on UT Route 132 to Fountain Green. Right on 400 South. Six miles to Freedom Road, turn right. Right again on Maple Canyon Road. Follow the paved road to the dirt.
