The Canyon Country District, comprised of the Moab and Monticello Field Offices manages about 3.6 million surface acres, providing opportunities for commercial recreation, livestock grazing, mining and oil and gas exploration, supporting local and regional economies in many ways. This part of the Colorado Plateau is best known for its world class scenery, stark red rock canyons juxtaposed against the backdrop of the La Sal and Abajo Mountain ranges, and its multitude of recreation opportunities. The BLM offers a myriad of ways to explore your public lands and encourages visitors to Respect and Protect the natural resources and scenic beauty found here.
