Cassidy Arch Canyon is a technical canyoneering route involving 7 rappels up to 140 ft tall through 3 arches. This awesome canyoneering route starts at the popular Cassidy Arch in Capitol Reef National Park. The canyon starts off with a bang as you drop 140 feet through Cassidy Arch followed by another 140-foot rappel. Five more rappels take you through 2 more arches/natural bridges and through sections of scenic canyon rarely visited by others. The canyon takes about half a day and is great fun for canyoneers.

Hiked in the afternoon, reached the trailhead about 4:00 PM and we were back to the car by 6:00.

We didn't have any trouble staying on the the trail, but did find a couple of alternate paths that might have been less strenuous. Beautiful views, all the way around, made it hard to pay attention to where you were putting your feet.

Taking plenty of water goes without saying. I didn't take my trekking pole and really wish that I had. It would have been very helpful on the descent.
