Did this hike as a short backpacking trip. However, Definitely can be done as a long day hike. I really enjoyed hiking along the ridgeline. Fairly quiet trail. Only saw a handful of people along the way.

This is a great trail that culminates in a view of Capital Reef that is unbelievable! Have hiked this a couple of times over the years and enjoyed each one.

A long but cool hike. There is no grand rewarding view or anything, which for many people would make them question doing a 9 mile hike, but for me I highly enjoyed hiking along the ridge and wash of the canyons in the waterpocket fold of Capitol Reef. If you have a lot of time and you just want to get a long hike in this is great. If you're trying to see a lot of different stuff or are time constrained you should probably do something else
