Capital Reef National Park Map
Capt 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.
Capital 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.
Cathedral 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.

NatGeo #267 – Capitol Reef NP Map
May is generally the best month for camping & hiking in southern Utah. Summer can bring triple digit heat and late season thunderstorms. Flash floods are common and life threatening in this mountainous high desert region. Winter snow is typical in this region.
Fishlake National Forest is neighboring the National Park on the west side of Capital Reef NP. Free camping is available on dirt roads in the National Forest; campfire permits are required for back country camping. RV park, motels, market and restaurants available in Torrey.
The Historic Burr Trail is a very long, yet drivable, graded dirt road connecting many public lands in south central Utah. High clearance is recommended, 4WD may be required during wet weather or snow.

Bryce Canyon National Park Map
Bryce Cyn NP
Super scenic red topped highways of Utah pass through this spectacular park. A high elevation (8000′ elev) forest w/ farmlands and small towns below.
Most visitors see this National Park in route to another, because they are just driving through (and not wanting to hike much). Lots of viewpoints and parking lots, picnic tables and steep switchback hiking trails.
Camping here requires advanced reservations w/ the National Park Service – and a few more blankets. Chilly temperatures and tall pines on this popular mountain rim.
Bryce Canyon National Park
This park is open 24 hours per day throughout the year.
Snow closes park roads – there may be temporary road closures when winter snow storms hit. Roads will stay closed until plowing is completed and conditions are safe for visitor traffic. Road maintenance may require brief closures of individual areas at other times. Landslides close hiking trails and dirt back roads nearby.
The visitors center is well worth a stop.
