Navajo Knobs Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"You will feel every inch of this sublime hike due to its significant elevation gain. But the reward for it is just as vast in terms of the incredible views that await you along the way and at the very top.

The scenery from the Navajo Knobs is more than spectacular as it stretches out in every direction, from Thousand Lake Mountain to the northwest to Boulder Mountain to the southwest and the Henry Mountains to the southeast. The rumpled, rippling canyon country of Capitol Reef is exposed to your bird's eye view, making the scope of this park truly visible and even more impressive as you realize how much vast wilderness surrounds you."

"The Navajo Knobs Trail leads hikers into the most remote country of all the Fruita District opportunities. At more than 9 miles it turns off most day-trippers and gives visitors who do make the trek a true chance at solitude.

Most people making this journey are doing so for the vaunted panoramic views associated with this part of Capitol Reef. About two-thirds of a mile from the Rim Overlook, the trail starts a long descent. Another ascent and short descent leads to the last mile to Navajo Knobs. A special look into the north country of the park is granted to hikers who complete the journey."
