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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Capitol Reef National Park: Escalante (Calf Creek Falls Recreation Area, Devils Garden, & more), Highway 12 Scenic Byway (in Torrey) and Green River (Goblin Valley State Park, River Rafting & Tubing, & more). Spend the 2nd (Wed) exploring nature at Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. And it doesn't end there: identify plant and animal life at Capitol Reef National Park , make a trip to Fremont Petroglyphs, tour the pleasant surroundings at Capitol Gorge Trail, and hike along The Hickman Bridge Trail.

For maps, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Capitol Reef National Park holiday planning website .

In September, daily temperatures in Capitol Reef National Park can reach 70°F, while at night they dip to 40°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
