Lower Cathedral Valley Overlooks Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This is the place to be if you want an amazing view of the iconic Temples of the Sun and Moon landmarks at Capitol Reef National Park. These formations seem to rise from the ground like the tip of a giant sword or arrow point. They do not seem real, particularly when the moody light of the Utah desert makes them glow.

A diagram on a sign of the ridge marks the beginning of
the trail. Hikers should follow a path north across a flat. There is a short, but steep, climb to a saddle with a rewarding view to the north of the Lower Cathedral Valley. Another saddle to the east with a good viewpoint can be reached after returning to the base of the cliffs."
