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.
