This trail follows the original highway through Capitol Reef. It was built to avoid the many crossings of the Fremont river. Barely wide enough for two wagons to pass it continued to be used by modern traffic until 1962 when the new highway 24 was constructed. You have to use your imagination to consider this a road now after many flash floods, the canyon has changed considerably. At the park boundary there is a broken down 1930 ish car rusted out. Painted on the door is " Scenic ahead, Capitol Reef Monument."
