  • Probably the most beautiful hiking in the Park. After a quick but good little climbing on steep switchbacks along the towering cliffs before entering the canyon where you can see a lot of rock formations of all colors. After a good easy kilometre, the canyon widens with a surprising décor: hoodoo of clear color surrounded by Red Cliff on a clear ground littered with black lava stones. But the best is to come. You have to climb again, but not too long, by the stairs located on the left, in order to reach the plateau where two points of view are offered. They are worth both the detour. From the top of these cliffs, the view is fantastic and like the place is infrequent, especially late in the afternoon, feels like the King of the world! Count two hours to enjoy.

Where to stay in Capitol Reef National Park

Capitol Reef National Park does not offer lodging beyond its campground, so many visitors opt to stay in the town of Torrey just to the west along Route 24. Economy motels, some of which are part of national chains and others of which are locally owned, dominate the list of options, but a few inns and bed and breakfasts are available too. Torrey has a couple of dining establishments, adding to the convenience of staying here. You'll also find a few motels between the town and the park entrance.
