Capitol Reef NP

Will be driving (leaving very early in morning) from Park City to Moab. How much of this NP can I see in one afternoon?

You can drive the scenic highway, make sure you continue all the way to the end of the dirt section(easy driving), that will give you the flavour of the place. Then look at the petroglyphs just south of the visitor centre and continue on your way south. The best parts of Capitol Reef are well off the beaten path and need a 4wd vehicle or at least higher clearance than a passenger car.
