Hike the Grand Wash, Capitol Reef National Park
Utah › Grand Wash
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.
