Hello! We are a family of four, with kids ages 11 & 13. This is our plan for our one day at Capitol Reef NP and Goblin Valley SP:
We are staying in Torrey. Head out early and see some overlooks on our way to Visitor Center. Visitor Center opens at 8:00. Stay there about an hour. Continue onto Scenic Drive. On the way out of Scenic Drive, have picnic lunch and pies at Gifford's. Continue heading west on 24, see other sites and hike Hickman Bridge. Head out of the park and head to Goblin Valley SP -- be there for sunset. After sunset, head to Moab.
Is this too aggressive of a day and do you think we can fit it all in? We pretty much will stop at most sites on 24 and Scenic Drive. Some posts say Goblin Valley is a half hour visit. Others say it's a full day. Any input or helpful hints would be appreciated. Thanks!
