Driving Capitol Gorge

The Capitol Gorge spur road was a through road from 1884 to 1962, the drive now ends in a few miles. From there you get out and hike the rest of the way through the Gorge. On this hike you see historic inscriptions from pioneers of the 19th and 20th century who traveled along the same trail.


These narrows twist through Wingate Sandstone and provide dramatic evidence of the forces of erosion at Capitol Reef National Park.
