This easygoing route passes through the old town site of Notom and across the Sandy Creek Benches to travel along inside the Waterpocket Fold in Capitol Reef National Park. It is often suitable for passenger cars in dry weather, but loose sand, bulldust, and a couple of rough wash crossings make it preferable to have a high-clearance vehicle. Special Attractions: Old town site of Notom; Views of the Waterpocket Fold and Oyster Shell Reef within Capitol Reef National Park. High-clearance vehicles are preferred, but not necessary. This trail is dirt roads, but may have rocks, grades, water crossings, or ruts that make clearance a concern in a normal passenger vehicle. The trail is fairly wide, so that passing is possible at almost any point along the trail. Mud is not a concern under normal weather conditions.
