Capitol Reef National Park Hiking Trails


Capitol Reef National Park offers exceptional hiking trails through a wide variety of terrain. Slot canyons here rival the famous canyon hikes in Zion National Park (only you'll see far fewer people here). Other trails ascend the knobs and ridges to viewpoints above natural bridges and other scenic wonders.
