The highlight of the park is Waterpocket Fold, a 100-mile-long wrinkle in the earth’s surface – a remarkable phenomenon. The park is also home to the historic Pioneer Register, a collection of pioneer signatures and inscriptions dating back to the late 1800s, and the Fruita Rural Historic District, which offers a glimpse into the area’s farming history and importance to the Mormon settlement.

Technical rock climbing is allowed in the park without permits, and many of the moderate-to-difficult trails will lead to excellent climbing opportunities and views. But whether you’re climbing the sandstone, hiking through the narrow canyons, taking a scenic drive, or exploring the park’s cultural history, Capitol Reef is a wonderful experience.

The drive: Stop in Hanksville to fuel up. Just north, there is a notable rock formation called Kathleen Rock, which is an excellent place to boondock, explore or climb to the top.
From there, head east on 24 for 50 miles until you reach Temple Mt. Road and toward Goblin Valley State Park.
