The Switchbacks On The Burr Trail In Utah Aren’t For The Faint Of Heart, But The Views Are Worth It

It’s pretty easy to love the wide open spaces and beautiful vistas that you’ll find in Capitol Reef National Park. One great way to see some stellar views is by taking the Burr Trail, a winding, twisty road that makes its way right through the park. There’s an half-mile-long stretch of switchbacks with some steep sections and sharp curves, and you’d better have nerves of steel if you’re planning to make it through.
