Trail Overview

Fun mixed terrain route accessing Lower Browns Reservoir, Jorgensen Flat, Tantalus Flats, Laurel and Hardy Arch, and the Western back-door access point of Capitol Reef National Park. This route starts out as a graded gravel Forest Service road that begins to denigrate into a bumpy dirt two-track as it passes through Tantalus Flats. Once crossing into the national park and onto South Draw Road, the road turns much more rugged, and a high clearance vehicle is needed. Much of that portion of the route either crosses or runs in a dry creekbed. Do not go further than the Pleasant Creek crossing ahead of Tantalus Flats during wet weather.
