The Harnet Road starts off of Hwy 24 just east of Capitol Reef NP. Not far from the beginning, you must cross the Freemont River. There is no bridge, so crossing is impossible if the river is flooding. The road climbs out of the river bottom, and goes thru some very stark terrain; no trees or brush or anything. If you follow this road far enough, you will enter Capitol Reef NP. You can take a right, and go to the Cathedral road, and come out on Hwy 24 in Cainville.
