Capitol Reef National Park is a great park to visit any time of the year.
Looking for something to do for the weekend and want to avoid the crowds? Come down to Capitol Reef National Park and do some hiking and touring and have the place practically to yourself. Snow accumulated on the Boulder Mountain which is near the park, but in Capitol Reef National Park there is very little snow. You’ll find beautiful views of the red rocks with skiffs of snow around the cliffs.
