Capitol Reef National Park has numerous outcroppings caused by the folding in the Earth’s crust. The area is home to many petroglyphs depicting the Fremont Indians life in this area. The park is home to the Hickman Natural Bridge which is a sandstone bridge that spans 133-feet. For a beautiful side trip, we recommend┬áCathedral Valley Road, a dirt road which meanders through the Capitol Reef National Park where you can enjoy the canyons and monolithic rocks spread across the desert. On the way through the valley, take advantage of the overlooks and many short hikes near the overlooks.
