A unique national park with lots to see and do. The homemade pies in the little store are delicious. The rock formations are unlike anything I’ve seen before and the colour patterns are just gorgeous. Highly recommend.
While not as popular and easy to get to as the other National Parks in Utah, Capitol Reef is still a beautiful destination with beautiful scenery. We drove into the park from Torrey and into the scenic drive. Along the drive, there are turnouts you...More
Smaller than Zion. If you want to complete all hikes 2 day was enough for me. At this area Zion National Park my favorite. There are 2 arches named; Cassidy and Hickman. You should see those two if you are in geography.
Stayed at the Capitol Reef Resort. We explored from here. The area is so cool. Less busy than Zion. Definitely take the scenic route by fruita. Lots of cool hikes throughout. The family loves going to CR once a year.
We spent about a day here. We visited Fruita, an historic Mormon settlement. We only hiked the Fremont River trail. It was moderately difficult, but offered really awesome views. Unfortunately, we weren't able to hike other trails due to time constraints.
Have done a few road trips and as we can fly from the Uk direct to LA this year are thinking of another, taking in some scenic place that we have not been to before. At the moment we have this route (we plan a route and then find places to stay and see on the way and have had some great recommendations on tripadvisor when planning such routes, so just started planning and asking for help.) LA to San Diego Yuma, Arizona, USA Phoenix, Arizona, USA Flagstaff, Arizona, USA vie...More

Southern Utah National Parks (13 Replies)
Couple in our 60's in good health and ready to do moderate hiking. This is a second post on a trip we are planning to the parks in southern Utah next month. Not doing Grand Canyon--done that a couple of times already. We have already received some excellent suggestions for which we are grateful. One of the big questions we are facing is whether to take the advice of those who say less is more or to be aggressive in our itinerary. If we were sure that this was part of the country we would...More

At first glance, you are doing a huge amount of backtracking. You're driving past Bryce to get to Torrey. And then driving past Torrey to go.to Bryce at the end of your trip. I believe on another thread you said you picked Las Vegas because of air fare pricing. But using SLC is the logical airport to avoid unnecessary back tracking. But if your tied to Las Vegas, then do.Zion, Bryce, Torrey and them Moab. And then bite the bullet on the long drive back to Las Vegas. Or make the long drive...More
Touring Zion to Canyonlands National Parks - Too early? (1 Replies)
We plan on flying into Las Vegas, staying the night, then heading north to follow the five day trail of national parks, going from Las Vegas to Zion National Park, to Bryce National Park, to Capitol Reef National Park, to Arches National Park, and ending at Canyonlands National Park. We plan on arriving in two weeks time in Vegas. Thereafter we will tour parts of Arizona or New Mexico, we haven't decided which yet. We have tried to phone the parks without success. Our sole question is whether...More
