Maple Canyon, located seven miles northwest of Moroni, is one of the nation's most unique rock climbing areas. While most of Central Utah's high country is covered with aspens and pines, Maple Canyon is heavily wooded with maples.
Make Canyon's most striking formation is Box Canyon, a dead-end gorge 500-700 feet deep, half a mile long, and so narrow in places a person can touch both walls at the same time.
Climbers from around the world come to test their skills on Maple Canyon's imbedded cobblestone cliffs. On any given weekend climbers of all abilities, ranging from novice to expert, can be seen dangling from the rocks like spiders on man-made silk.
