From Interstate 70 in central Utah, take UT 24 south to Hanksville. Where UT 24 turns west, follow it to the Capitol Reef National Park entrance. The highway crosses the park and exits on the west near Torrey. Near the park entrance on the west side, there are motels, restaurants, gas stations, and other facilities, including horse and mountain-bike rentals. The “frontcountry” of Capitol Reef National Park lies mostly along the access roads, with the backcountry being accessible only by hiking and, in some cases, by horseback. This trail guide includes descriptions of Sulphur Creek.
