We visited Cathedral Valley on our recent vacation to Utah while in Torrey exploring Capitol Reef National Park. We drove the entire road beginning at the Caineville Wash Road and ending at the River Ford Crossing, the drive can be done either way.
We began early and spent about 6 hours exploring Cathedral Valley. The Temples of the Sun and the Moon were massive. We also loved the view as we drove over the switchbacks, stopping at the primitive campground for a picnic lunch. There is so much diversity to the landscape here. We wondered if we had landed on another planet when we drive through the Bentonite Hills section of the valley. The road itself was generally sandy with some wet patches, but nothing that our 4 wheel drive could not handle. The road from the campground was quite rocky for several miles and we definitely had to creep along, but we made it through with no problem.
I would recommend a visit through Cathedral Valley, it was just beautiful!
