LIke the others did with the Burr trail. Between the two do the Burr.

Great hike, clearly marked, with great views. Allows you to walk over the arch.

Quiet trail that ends up in a breathtaking box canyon.

Great conditions today. The hike is challenging but the trail is well marked and the terrain diverse. Arriving at the arch is very rewarding.

Motorcycled from Hans Flat Ranger Station many years ago and then hiked the overlook trail at the end. The overlook is amazing and I have wanted to go back and hike down into the maze

The Alltrails description of this hike is from the Highway 24 trailhead but the map is from the Gifford House end. We hiked in from the Highway 24 end of the Cohad Trail switched to the Frying Pan Trail and then to the Cassidy Arch Trail to Casidy Arch. A truly great and strenuous hike (lots of up and down) but not difficult nor edgy. The way we did it it encompassed about 8.5 miles and about 5 hours. The Arch is impressive and the only one we've found in southeast Utah that is easily walked across on top given its massive width.

We combined this with the Burr Trail. Decent escape to the back country, some nice scenery. Easy drive, could get tougher after rain, worth a half day if you have the extra time

Great hike that climbs quickly out of the valley floor to a slot canyon near the top. Our kids did great completing the steep incline in about 15 minutes. We enjoyed exploring the slot canyon and a couple of its side canyons. The view from the canyon entrance are wonderful and gives a good overlook of some of the orchards and farm below.

This was a fantastic hike, and was my favorite part of my Capital Reef trip. The trail gradually rolls up and down, constantly changing elevation, so you never have extended climbs or descents. For the most part, the trail is well maintained and cairns are visible, with the exception of a few areas in the Frying Pan trail. Just keep you head on a swivel or bring a GPS. Be sure to pack plenty of water. There is none on the trail, and during the summer this trail will be incredibly hot and you are exposed 95% of the time. The views at the end at Cassidy Arch are wonderful, and it's a good time to rest and soak it all in. If you have time for 1 hike in the park, it should be this one.

Hiking in and around The Maze is a one of a kind adventure. Getting there is a challenge, but the views alone are worth the tedious drive! Be careful on the route from the Maze Overlook to the canyon floor via the Maze Overlook trail. It requires some class 4 scrambling and takes more time that you might think. The Chocolate Drops are viewable from many locations around the Maze Overlook, fun hiking without going all the way down into the canyon.

This was an awesome hike and covers portion of the Cohab Canyon Trail for about a 1 Mile. Then The Frying Pan trail for about 3 miles. And then the Cassidy Arch trail for about .5 miles. My Handheld GPS listed 8.3 miles and as the round trip distance from Fruita. Its about .5 miles shorter from the Highway 24 trailhead.

We did this trail in conjuction with the Burr Trail out of Boulder Town. The road starts off Hwy 24 and goes down to the ferry on Lake Powell.

This trail goes from I-70 (exit 131) along graded roads to Hwy 24 near Goblin Valley State Park. Lots of scenic desert areas.

I love Capital Reef. This trail is a great one. Strenuous at first, but once you conquor that it is nice going down the canyon. Be sure to take the side trail up to the rim for a nice view of Fruita and the orchards. Do this hike in the morning before the sun gets high as it can be a hot one later in the day.
