In many parks the most beautiful destinations can’t be seen from the road. That’s not the case at Capitol Reef. Ramble down the 8-mile Capitol Reef Scenic Drive for breathtaking viewpoints and more likely than not, some great conversation. The Scenic Drive is a paved road, suitable to passenger vehicles. Beyond the paved road are two dirt spur roads, Grand Wash and Capitol Gorge. These dirt spur roads enter canyons and lead to trailheads, and are usually suitable for passenger cars and RVs up to 27 feet in length.
