We had previously done the Burr Trail from Boulder to the Notom Rd. and south to Bullfrog Marina. On a recent trip we did the Burr again then north on the Notom through Capitol Reef to Hwy 24.
Utah was having a wet July so we checked to be sure there hadn't been any recent washouts. I Utah does wonderful maintenance on it's unpaved roads and the Burr was no exception. The 30 miles through dramatic redrock canyons, followed by exciting tight switchbacks that drop 800 ft. in 1/2 mile and the colorful, desolate beauty of the lonely dirt road that follows along the Waterpocket Fold is our idea of a perfect drive. The voluminous clouds of Utah's afternoon monsoon skies only added to the drama.
We were in our truck this trip, because we had other drives planned that would require higher clearance, but we've done the Burr Trail and Notom in our Honda Civic. It's another great Utah drive.
