Golden Throne

Capitol Reef National Park

The Golden Throne (7,042') is comprised of interlayered red sandstone and gypsum from the Carmel Formation, a layer in the San Rafael Group formed during the Jurassic Period. It's among the tallest features in the Waterpocket Fold, and visible from many points in the Park. The Golden Throne Trail climbs 1.95 mles and 727' above Capitol Gorge along cliffs and rims to a slickrock terrace with good views of the Throne and adjacent domes.
