Hiking the red rock country of Capitol Reef National Park

Operating in Utah’s Capitol Reef National Park and the Torrey, Utah, area, Canyon Country Outfitters provides Capitol Reef National Park hikes, ATV and Jeep tours, and horseback trips throughout the rugged and scenic Capitol Reef landscape. Capitol Reef is bigger than two other Utah National Parks – Bryce Canyon and Zion – combined and can only be taken in by venturing off road by ATV, on horseback, or on foot.

Capitol Reef National Park Hikes

Venture on foot into some of the park’s most remote areas. Explore slot canyons and narrow gorges. Climb Waterpocket Fold and take in the views. Hikes in the southern part of the park include Upper and Lower Muley Twist Canyons, Halls Creek, Cathedral Valley and Fruita. Experienced hiking guides can maximize your Capitol Reef experience by leading you to hidden canyons and evidence of Native American culture. Visit locations that the casual visitor might never be aware existed. Hike 2 hours, a half-day or full day. Take a sunset hike.
