  • This view point is marked in the National Park map. To get to this view point, you turn off the Burr Trail just west/above the switchbacks. Look for the sign that say "Upper Muley Twist Canyon Trail"....  more »
  • The strike Valley overlook is a great destination to the Waterpocket fold, which partially crosses the Capitol Reef National Park in Utah to overlook even to a large extent. The access is possible only with a high clearance SUV this but only up to the "parking lot". From here it goes up the last few metres walking up to the overlook. Visitors with a "normal" car run at best your way through the upper Muley twist (so the off-road slopes) and continue up to the overlook. Here you can enjoy pure freedom, are largely alone and have a spectacular view. Top!
