Description

Added by Tobin Akehurst

Hike the spectacular Grand Wash through beautiful vertical sandstone walls.

The Grand Wash is a canyon in Capitol Reef National Park featuring several-hundred-foot-tall sandstone walls. The canyon walls are, for the most part, widely spaced, except for a half mile long section of scenic "narrows".

Hike to nearby Cassidy Arch if you have extra time.

Beware of potentially deadly flash floods, get a flash flood report from a ranger.
