Capitol Gorge Trail

This is a scenic 2-mile hike through a narrow canyon with towering sandstone walls. Hikers can visit ancient petroglyphs, encounter natural water pockets known as "The Tanks," and discover the Pioneer Register where early pioneers left inscriptions.

Cassidy Arch

Leading to the stunning Cassidy Arch, the trail is approximately 3.5 miles (5.6 kilometers) round trip. Named after the notorious outlaw Butch Cassidy, who supposedly used the area as a hideout, the trail offers panoramic views of the surrounding canyons and rock formations. The moderately challenging hike is a great way for visitors to visit the unique landscapes and geological wonders of Capitol Reef National Park.

My two-night backpacking trip into the Capitol Reef National Park backcountry was an experience I'll never forget. Our guides Lia and Ashleigh were friendly, caring, and extremely professional and detail oriented from the pre-trip Zoom meeting to when we said our goodbyes on the last day of the trip. Their communication and problem solving skills are top notch and I loved all the thoughtful details they sprinkled throughout the experience, from really tasty and creative meals to providing super-interesting info about local flora and geology and offering super helpful information about backpacking skills and Leave No Trace principals. I think also that the routes they chose provided the perfect level of challenge and the campsites were gorgeous and gratefully secluded. I would highly recommend both the three-day, two-night backpacking itinerary with Good Trip and Lia and Ashleigh as guides, regardless of the itinerary.


This was my first backpacking trip without my husband and with a group of women I had never met. It completely exceeded my expectations. Lia and Ashleigh were incredible guides. They had everything planned out perfectly from the trail to the food and even how to go to the bathroom in the woods. They made each of us feel completely comfortable and supported throughout the entire weekend. I went into this not knowing anyone and came out feeling like I had known these women for years. Thank you to Good Trips, Lia and Ashleigh for an unforgettable experience!


I recently returned from one of the best experiences of my life. Lia and Ashley were kind & supportive as they educated this first time backpacker leaving me feeling accomplished and safe. I met a remarkable group of women that I'm sure to meet up with again for future adventures, just an incredible bond. Everything was planned and the leaders were so knowledgeable about everything. I can't wait until my next adventure and I miss my new friends already.
