Fodor's Review

Between AD 600 and 1300 the Capitol Reef area was occupied by Native Americans who were eventually referred to as Fremonts, named after the Fremont River that flows through the park. A nice stroll along a boardwalk bridge, 1.1 miles east of the visitor center, allows close-up views of ancient rock art, which can be identified by the large trapezoidal figures often depicted wearing headdresses and ear baubles.
