Sulphur Creek Hike

Sulphur Creek Hike
(4-6+ Hours)
Join me for a family friendly guided hike in and along Sulphur Creek through narrow deep canyons and waterfalls, similar to Zions Narrows hike with far fewer people (often we have it all to ourselves)! Sulphur Creek is a shallow desert stream that cuts through the oldest layers of Capitol Reef National Park which makes for some unique, stunning scenery and photo opportunities, definitely a hike you’re going to want to tell your friends about. A guide will help you navigate the some of the obstacles and routes while talking about the geology and history of the area. This will be a very memorable experience for you and your family and maybe the most fun hike you’ve ever done! You’ll spend most of the hike walking in the water, stopping to enjoy shallow pools, waterfalls or dramatic scenes. This is a great late spring, summer and early autumn hike and a way to beat the heat. There are a few spots we safely scramble down with the aid of a guide. Along the way we may encounter a couple of pools where the water is chest deep, this can fluctuate throughout the season but do come prepared to get wet and have fun!
  • This is a shuttle hike where we need to leave one car at the trail-head and one near the Visitor Center.

  • Water in the spring and fall can be cool but comfortable, in summer months the water is warm.
