This has become one of our real favorites, a nice loping hike over hill and dale to a crest where you get a great view of the valley below and then down into the Maze itself, which winds around in different directions. It feel confusing at first, but just keep going, you'll end up in the wash which intersects the Window Rock Trail. This is a good place to turn around and head back the way you came, otherwise you end up walking in sight of the road. There are plenty of good lunch spots right in the Maze, so pack a nice lunch and enjoy!

Nature is timeless.
Whenever I walk amongst the Cottonwood trees at Covington Park, I think of how they might have looked in the past, how a photographer in the 1900’s might have seen them and decided to publish a book of his pictures. These pages are the remnants of that book, the binding having deteriorated and fallen away long ago, just the single, found pages remain. A testament to the timeless beauty he found there.
