Factory Butte is a 6,302-foot (1,921 m) summit in the Upper Blue Hills in northern Wayne County, Utah, United States, about 12 miles (19 km) northwest of Hanksville and about 14 miles (23 km) east of Capitol Reef National Park boundary.

The butte was so named by early settlers who thought its outline resembled a huge factory building, the Provo woolen mill in particular.
The synonymous Factory Butte in Emery County, Utah lies a mere 15 miles (24 km) to the east-southeast.

  • Awesome area. Outta this world
  • What a great spot. If your vehicle can handle it, explore some of the side roads. The views from the rim are jaw dropping. Especially at sunrise!
