Jeep touring experiences are particularly incredible in the Capitol Reef region. Back-country roads lead in all directions through diverse terrain and elevations. Choose from high desert terrain, red rock, mountain, or forests. Check with federal agencies such as the BLM and Forest Service for specifics on back-country roads. As always, use great care and stay on the utilized roads except in areas designated for open use. You’ll love this country. Check out our scenic drives section to learn more about specific areas.
