Pleasant Creek Route

Capitol Reef National Park

Pleasant Creek flows west - east through the Waterpocket Fold in Capitol Reef National Park. An unmaintained but intuitively followed route traces the creek approximately four miles from the trailhead on Pleasant Creek Road to the Park’s east boundary. Exact distances will vary by your route and efficiency across open flats, scalable sandstone formations and numerous bends in the creek. Pleasant Creek is one of few perennial streams and natural passages through the Waterpocket Fold, a critical resource for humans over many millennia.
