At the end of Capital Reef National Park's scenic drive is a dirt road called Pleasant Creek Road, but parts aren't so pleasant for the uninitiated. This offroad adventure takes you through a couple of streams and along a dry river bed until you start a steep climb over a mountain range. The mountain climb consists of a rutted and narrow shelf road. On the other side, you'll enter Dixie National Forest and then on to scenic Highway 12 near Pleasant Creek Campground.
Suppose the fantastic scenery isn't enough, once out of the National Park and into the Dixie National Forest area. In that case, you'll find excellent secluded, remote camping spots along this trail throughout Dixie National Forest.
