The scenically diverse region in southern Utah, known as Capitol Reef Country, has a diversity of landscape like no other area in the state: red rock formations and canyons, arches, plateaus, pristine meadows, alpine forests, as well as lush green valleys and astounding desert landscape. That landscape makes Capitol Reef Country perfect for outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, wildlife viewing or just a peaceful scenic drive. Capitol Reef National Park is an oasis of colorful sandstone cliffs, impressive domes and soaring monoliths. The contrast in elevation and terrain makes this area a haven for those seeking solitude or outdoor adventure.

While visiting Capitol Reef Country you'll want to set aside several days to hike trails that lead through dramatic rock formations, view Native American writings, hand-pick your own fruit from historic pioneer orchards or traverse the seldom seen recesses of this national park.

This region was once the hide-out for famous outlaw Butch Cassidy and his gang the Wild Bunch. Come discover what Butch found so attractive about Utah's least crowded and most surprising national park and the diverse surrounding landscape.
