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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Water Pocket Fold. Step out of Capitol Reef National Park to go to Boulder and see Anasazi State Park Museum, which is approximately 56 minutes away. The adventure continues: stroll through The Hickman Bridge Trail, trek along Capitol Gorge Trail, take some stellar pictures from Larb Hollow Overlook, and contemplate the long history of Gifford Homestead.

To find reviews, ratings, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the Capitol Reef National Park trip planner .

In August, plan for daily highs up to 77°F, and evening lows to 46°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 2nd (Mon) to allow time for travel back home.
