Capitol Gorge Road Professional Review and Guide

"A stroll down the wash of Capitol Gorge takes you through one of only six drainages that cut through the Waterpocket Fold from east to west. This particular drainage was once a wagon road and subsequently a route used by motor vehicles before the construction of the present UT 24 in 1962.

Capitol Gorge offered travelers a passage through the Waterpocket Fold that was free of the many Fremont River crossings required by the current UT 24 route."
