Hiking Chimney Rock Loop Trail in Capitol Reef National Park

Chimney Rock in Capitol Reef National Park Utah

Chimney Rock is an impressive, towering natural spire which rises over 300 feet above the road. The Chimney Rock Loop takes you to the top of a mesa and allows hikers a view looking down on Chimney Rock as well as the amazing scenery up and down the valley. It’s an amazing hike which reminded us a lot of the Fairyland Loop in Bryce Canyon (one of our favorite hikes in Utah).
