    Trails that are more demanding/difficult, however landscape compensates by far all the efforts.

    Be sure to hang out a little and watch the evening light on the west facing strata.

    This park has an amazing array of hiking and driving. The scenary is maginificant. And its not heavily visited. I was just there in February and there was almost no one in the park.

    This is a beautiful park. Because it's less popular, it's quiet and peaceful. (No obnoxious tourists!) Campgrounds look great; most spots are shaded. Driving the unpaved roads are worth it!

    If open, drive the Grand Wash and Capitol Gorge unpaved roads - you drive in between the rocks and it's bad ass. Very underrated national park!

    By far the most disappointing / less scenic of the 5 Utah national parks. Don't waste time going out of your way for here, instead go to arches, canyonlands, or Bryce Canyon, much more scenic NPs

    Stop in Torrey, if you are coming from the north, to eat! No dinner options in park! Stop at Gifford's house down street from visitor's center to get pie & favorite canned fruit preserves!

    If you have the time, the Strike Valley Overlook deep in the south end of the park is amazing. The drive there from Boulder on the Burr Trail is especially scenic.

    Make sure you bring your camera, binoculars & plenty of water.

    If you're not willing to go on any of the unpaved roads, you will be disappointed. Spend at least half a day here.

    A vastly underrated national park. Very cool trails and scenery, plus a working orchard and fruit pie. Make sure to do the scenic drive.

    The last .5 of the Cassidy Arch trail is poorly marked, so be prepared.

    Nice wooded sites. Fresh pick-yourself fruit. The home made ice cream is amazing.
