Capitol Reef map from the park brochures
This is the full Capitol Reef map, showing the roads, campgrounds, the Fruita area, and part of Dixie National Forest. Click the image to view a full size JPG (700 kb) or download the PDF (1.1 mb).
Capitol Reef trail maps
If you’re looking for a trail map to cover the entire park and show trail mileages and topo lines, you’ll want a National Geographic Trails Illustrated map. This is especially true at a park like Capitol Reef, where trails are not all well marked and require route-finding skills. Last time I was there I thought I could get away without a topo map; I ended up lost for about 20 minutes before finding cairns again. Don’t make my mistake!
This is a Cathedral District trailhead map, which shows the trailheads accessed from the Cathedral Road and Hartnet Road in the northern part of the park. Click the image to view a full size GIF (150 kb).
