Getting to Capitol Reef from Arches is a really pretty drive. There are several spots along the River to stop by and have lunch. We even soaked our feet in the creeks. It has more foliage than Arches and is small picture into pioneer Utah. There are several points of interest to stop by during your drive through the park. There are plenty of trails to hike and the geology is different from Arches and Canyonlands.
