I have read that Capitol Reef NP is the least visited of Utah's "Mighty Five", and I just don't understand why. It is a place of incredible beauty, and the rocks in a multitude of colors, shapes and formations are the stars here. Just when...More
An incredibly beautiful primitive park. Just east of Torrey, UT, beautiful drive to the park. Go to the visitor's center and get good information about the geological history of the area, fascinating. If you can't hike take the 10 mile paved drive into the park...More

The entire Capitol Reef Park area is spectacular; you can see forever. Very good ranger station at entrance with excellent video; recommend. Take a picnic and LOTS WATER as there is no water once you go on 21 miles scenic drive. Get out and hike...More
