Happy #parkfeatureFriday ! Next Wednesday is @CapitolReefNP ’s 48th birthday!
Though Highway 24 cuts straight through the park as a waypoint between more heavily visited Utah parks, there is so much more to see as you step out of the car. The park has 15 established day-hiking trails, ranging from a quarter mile boardwalk jaunt to experience 2000-year-old Fremont-era petroglyphs, to 10-mile loops that lead you to spectacular panoramic views of the incredible geology of the Waterpocket Fold. Historic Fruita features over 1900 fruit trees, originally established in the late 1800s by Mormon pioneers, providing beautiful spring blooms and autumn U-Picks. Designated as an International Dark Sky Park, Capitol Reef provides not only some of the best stargazing, but essential dark habitat for diverse populations both native and migratory wildlife. No matter what time of year you visit, there’s always something magical to experience at Capitol Reef National Park. .
We donate 10% of sales of the Capitol Reef NP Traveler pin, patch and walking stick medallions directly to Capitol Reef Natural History Association, to support programs within the park. To find out more about this amazing park and how you can support them even more, visit the link in our bio!
