Torrey, Utah

Located just eight miles from the west entrance of Capitol Reef National Park, Torrey is an idyllic little tree-lined town surrounded by rose-colored cliffs and green meadows. At an elevation of 6,830 feet, summer temperatures tend to be quite pleasant, ranging from 50 to 90 degrees F. Winter temperatures range from 0 to 60 degrees F. Its proximity to Capitol Reef National Park, the mountains of Fishlake and Dixie National Forests, Scenic Byway 12: Utah's All-American Road, sublime desert landscapes to trout-filled alpine lakes, make Torrey an outdoor lover's perfect hub for some of the most spectacular scenery and outdoor recreation opportunities in the state.

Originally established in the 1880s by Mormon Pioneers, it is thought to be named after Jay L. Torrey, the Colonel of the 2nd Regiment of Theodore Roosevelt's Rough Riders. Today, the town is home to 182 residents, from descendants of the original settlers to the newcomers, who've come, largely, for the area's incredible beauty and outdoor recreation.

For visitors, Torrey offers lodging, cafes and restaurants, and a visitor information center.

In and around the Torrey/Capitol Reef area, consider the following popular activities for which guides, rentals, and services are available: hiking, canyoneering, and climbing tours and rentals; ATV, 4-wheel drive, and dirt bike tours and rentals; mountain bike tours and rentals; camping equipment rentals; and more.
