CAPITOL REEF JEEP TOURS

Capitol Reef is the second largest National Park in Utah, covering almost 100 miles north to south. We estimate over 90% of visitors see a tiny fraction of the park, around the park visitor center and scenic drive.

Explore the expansive, rugged backcountry with us! We’ll show you what makes Capitol Reef so unique and why it’s considered the hidden gem of Utah’s National Parks!

Tour Description

If you have one day or afternoon to experience Capitol Reef National Park, this tour is for you.

The Cathedral Valley is the more rugged option of our Jeep tours. We venture into the remote northern district of the park, driving a 110 mile loop that takes 5-7 hours to complete. The National Park Service recommends this route normally be undertaken by high clearance 4×4 vehicles; few park visitors witness the spectacular landscape that is the Cathedral Valley.

We’ll see massive rock towers the size of skyscrapers (which give this district its name due to their appearance), alien moonscapes, epic vistas ripped right out of a western movie, and weird crystals, sinkholes, and lava formations. Iconic sites like the Temple of the Sun and Moon, Glass Mountain, and the colorful Bentonite Hills are visited on this adventure.

Highlights

  • Queen of the Wash
  • Temples of the Sun and Moon
  • Lower Cathedral Valley

Add-Ons

  • Prepared picnic box from a local cafe
