Capitol Reef National Park is a hidden treasure filled with cliffs, canyons and
arches in a 100 miles geologic monocline in the middle of the desert. The park
has rich history of western settlements and many places to hike and explore.
thoughts:Unfortunately, I never invested the needed time to really enjoy and
explore this park, I just drove through hwy 24 crossing the park along the deep
Fremont River Canyon.
can be interesting point to view the landscape from the car where hwy 24 cut east/west
through the park Capitol-Reef mountain range, short hike or stop at the visitor
center or even longer stay and exploration.
number of visitors at the park is relatively smaller than other “famous” parks and
the large size promise you will have secluded experience.
