Trail Overview

This trail goes from Notom-Bullfrog Road to Capitol Reef National Park over the Waterpocket Fold. Once the trail enters Grand Staircase a couple of miles from the top, it becomes a paved road. It winds its way up the Waterpocket Fold in several steep switchbacks. There is a nice overlook at the top. It then carries you out of the Park and into Grand Staircase-Escalante.
