Sinuous Canyon and Big Views

Our hike will take us along and across Waterpocket Fold, following a narrow canyon that meanders back and forth through tilted strata that display a myriad of colors and landforms. Climbing over a saddle across the wall of Navajo Sandstone, a rainbow of brightly colored hogback ridges stretch along the base of the “reef”. Views of the Henry Mountains towering above a moonscape of badlands are awesome. Winding our way across a slickrock wonderland, slot canyons also await discovery by the adventurous.  Although this is a designated trail in Capitol Reef NP, its remoteness and the potential length of the hike makes it anoter route less traveles.  In order to reduce hiking distance while maximizing our enjoyment, this hike requires a shuttle where we would leave your vehicle at one trailhead and drive the Earth Tours SUV to the other trailhead.
