Get the best sunset seat in Capitol Reef NP on the aptly named Sunset Point Trail where there are 360 views of the beautiful rock formations.

Sunset Point Trail is an quick and easy 0.4 mile hike near the entrance of the park that provides you with beautiful views of the Capital Reef rim from the opposite side of the park. As the evening descends the setting sun illuminates the red rim rock formations giving them the best photographic views!

At the end of the hike there is an exciting rock formation with nature-made koozies, perfect for helping you enjoy the sunset with some adult beverages!
