Capitol Reef National Park takes its name from a particularly rugged and scenic section of the Waterpocket Fold, a geologic "wrinkle" stretching for 160 km (100 mi) along a dry plateau surrounded by white Navajo sandstone cliffs and domes, and red canyons, buttes, and rock bridges.
Spend the 31st (Fri) exploring nature at Capitol Reef National Park . There's much more to do: hike along The Hickman Bridge Trail, contemplate the long history of Gifford Homestead, do some rugged touring at local off-road trails, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Goosenecks Overlook.

For reviews, maps, photos, and other tourist information, read our Capitol Reef National Park road trip site .

In May, plan for daily highs up to 63°F, and evening lows to 31°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 1st (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
