Capitol Gorge and the Tanks Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Capitol Gorge once served as a road through the rough desert country of southern Utah. It became unnecessary in 1962 when Hwy. 24 was completed. Visitors to Capitol Reef still drive down a portion of Capitol Gorge, but only to the trailhead.

The earliest signatures from two pioneers is dated 1871. Others followed down the years, as the Gorge was a major route
through canyon country. While rock art and the Pioneer Register are considered historic, it is important to note that
defacing canyons walls in today’s world is illegal. Remind
people if you see them trying to add their signature or art
and then report them."
