We were traveling the Burr Trail in a rented 4X4 SUV so we decided to take Muley Twist Canyon Road up to the Strike Valley Overlook. The road is narrow and follows a dry slot canyon for about 3 miles. I would imagine the ride could be difficult after a rain due to sand ledges in the creekbed, but when... More

If one is going to see Capitol Reef, then one should take the time to see its fantastic variety of formations, colors, & views, which makes it so unique. This overlook is one worth the short hike off the Burr Trail.

I went on a cloudy day and got there too late for good photos in any case, but it's still a great view, and there are some cool formation and two arches along the way. I walked the 6.6 mi RT from the pullout a little down the dirt road from the Burr Trail Road, but any vehicle with some... More
