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.
Escape the urban bustle at Anasazi State Park Museum and Capitol Reef National Park . Gifford Homestead and Fruita Schoolhouse will appeal to history buffs. Step out of Capitol Reef National Park with an excursion to Factory Butte in Caineville--about 58 minutes away. The adventure continues: hike along The Hickman Bridge Trail, don't miss a visit to Fremont Petroglyphs, head off-road at local off-road trails, and stroll through Grand Wash Trail.
