Capitol Reef National Park is located near Torrey, Utah.  If you haven’t been to Capitol Reef, it’s likely that you’ve never even heard of Torrey.  Torrey is located roughly 11 miles away from the Visitor Center for the park, about 2.5 hours from Moab, UT (the nearest “large” city) and just over 3 hours from Salt Lake City, UT.

While packing for your visit to Capitol Reef National Park isn’t too hard, it helps to have a few tips to help make sure you are well prepared.  Here are a few of the things that we think are "must haves" when planning a trip to Captiol Reef National Park!

Bristlecone Loop Trail in Bryce Canyon National Park

Bryce Canyon National Park Utah

Bristlecone Loop Trail in Bryce Canyon National Park

The Bristlecone Loop Trail is an easy hike that includes Rainbow Point and Yovimpa Point.  From these vantage points you have different (and great!) views. Plus, along the way you’ll be among the twisty Bristlecone Pines.  While you won’t have the same breathtaking experience as you will on the Queens Garden and Navajo Loop Trail, we highly recommend heading out here, getting out of the car and taking this short walk to see a different part of Bryce Canyon!

Mossy Cave Trail in Bryce Canyon National Park

Mossy Cave Trail in Bryce Canyon National Park

Many people come to Bryce Canyon National Park to see the hoodoos, but few make their way over to the Water Canyon area and hike the Mossy Cave Trail.  This part of the park may seem remote, but it is relatively close to the main section of Bryce Canyon and very much worth the time it takes to get here.

This hike includes a cave (with cool temperatures that will surprise you), a gorgeous waterfall, hoodoos and even an arch.  In fact, few hikes in Bryce Canyon even have a little bit of water, so this trail is actually quite a unique experience.

This hike is fantastic for families, and highly recommended if you have the time while visiting this picturesque park.
