Hall’s Creek is named after Charles Hall, a Mormon pioneer who operated a ferry across the Colorado River in the 1880’s. Hall’s wagon trail through the area still serves as the hiking trail for a large portion of the journey to Hall’s Creek Narrows, a remote, deep canyon that Hall’s Creek has cut through the Kayenta and Navajo sandstone layers of the Waterpocket Fold in the extreme southern portion of Capitol Reef National Park.
