A day hike with overnight options through part of the Waterpocket Fold. You hike through a deep canyon in a remote, lightly used wilderness with splendid vistas, gaining a historical perspective on the Mormon pioneers who passed through this area in the late 1800s. The Lower Muley Twist hike passes through a representative portion of the 100-mile-long eroded uplift called the Waterpocket Fold, most of which lies within Capitol Reef National Park. The canyon offers many opportunities for side trips and off-trail exploring.
