Capitol Reef National Park (Utah-USA)

Capitol Reef National Park is located in southeastern Utah, in Garfield and Wayne counties, USA. The 100 miles long Waterpocket Fold of Capitol Reef National Park consists on a giant colorful uplift monocline of jumbled white Navajo sandstone domes, huge Wingate sandstone cliffs and twisted deep canyons. The park runs from Thousand Lake Mountain to Lake Powell (north to south) and between Boulder and Henry Mountains (west to east). The scenic byway 24 crosses the park, 30 miles from Hankville, used the Fremont River Gorge. Most of the natural arches located inside the spectacular Waterpocket Fold are on remote location or accessible by driving the unpaved road along the long Fold. This well-maintened unpaved road connect the visitor from Notom to Bullfrog Marina on the side of the famous Lake Powell. Stop at the visitor center in Fruita to know the last road conditions.
