Capital Reef National Park Map

NPSCapt Reef NP 

Utah’s National Parks are unbelievably beautiful. Enjoying one National Park at a time would require months. Hiking, off-roading and camping are always popular during the summer months, yet most of the parks are open all year long.

NPSCapital Reef is a fertile high desert canyon with plenty of great slot canyons and archways to explore. The main campground on the highway is located next to a historic fruit orchard.

camptruckCathedral Valley is a cool off-road destination for secluded camping, way off the paved highway. Self sufficient campers only!

The Burr Trail is a historic graded road, with steep switchbacks and red rock scenery. This main backcountry route connects the National Park to remote BLM land, south of the park.

Inyo National Forest Map USDA

A day hike to Mount Whitney and back to the Portal is not possible, so an overnight backpacking trip is a given. High elevations makes for thinner air and more challenging conditions. Permits are required to hike this popular peak. They limit the amount of people that can be on these trails. A lottery tackles the choice of who gets to go this year. Annual deadline is April 30 @ recreation.gov
