Capitol Reef is a lesser-known national park in Utah, and it likes it that way. People do it wrong – they rush through it on their way through the Utah Mighty Five. It’s best experienced by relaxing while surrounded by red rock walls in Historic Fruita, or by getting off the paved roads and exploring the secluded areas of the park. At the very least, spend some time hiking to get some of the best views of the park.
