Cathedral Valley Scenic Backway takes you into the heart of the "Cathedral District", a land filled with natural wonder. A title like that is something you think you should be hearing in Paris, but instead, you are right next to Capitol Reef National Park, a wonder in its own right. With prominent natural landmarks named Temple of the Sun, Temple of the Moon, and Jericho Wall you always question if the beauty is overhyped. It is not. For the off-road crowd, this trail is a must do simply for the visual stimulation factor. Cathedral Valley Loop presents no challenging obstacles, but mile after mile of a colossal panorama is the journey's reward.
