With Rachael. Trail from Hickman Bridge trailhead. Did a few other trail hikes in the park on our trip, Chimney Rocks Loop and Cohab/Fryinpan to Cassidy Arch from the campground area. First visit, cool park and looking forward to exploring the backcountry on future visits!
If you don't have time for backcountry at Capitol Reef Date Climbed: Sep 19, 2014
Crossing Utah's national parks off our dance card and spent the day at Capitol Reef. After getting one of the last campsites (at 11:30 AM on a Saturday - not bad - and Loop B has 5 tent only walk in sites), we asked the ranger what the longest hike we could do that day was and she suggested this.
Very hot and exposed with some steep parts, but the slickrock is easy to hike on and the views of the Hickman Bridge overlook, the overlook halfway up, and the panoramic view at the top were well worth it. Scramble at the end was fun and shared the top with a tarantula wasp!
