The Fremont River contributes to the unique landscapes found in Capitol Reef National Park, providing water that has significantly shaped the terrain over millions of years. Visitors to the park can enjoy scenic drives, hiking trails, and the opportunity to explore the geological wonders created by the Fremont River and other natural forces.
