(nr Torrey UT)
The Hickman Bridge trail was part of Capitol Reef National Park; but, the trailhead was two miles east of the entrance along UT-24. The parking lot was full; so, I parked beside the highway.
The trail gained some elevation, but it was a gradual incline. Switchbacks made it easy. Tall cliffs, a miniature natural bridge, and some Fremont native ruins were on the way.
Hickman Bridge was pretty big, with the trail going under it and looping back another way. Beautiful scenes along the path, and a view of Capitol Dome; namesake for the National Park.
It was getting hot, so I was glad to see the Fremont River at the trailhead. The Bridge trail was a fairly easy hike located within the Waterpocket Fold. My nearby boondock camp had a good view of the Fold, too.
