Navajo Knobs is a high rocky outcropping along the Waterpocket Fold in Capitol Reef National Park. The trail starts by the Fremont River, taking the hiker past the very large Hickman Bridge and ultimately to a short scrambling route that reaches the top of the Navajo Knobs. From the top, a panoramic view of the Waterpocket Fold and its surroundings can be found, including the bird’s eye view of the Capitol Reef Visitor Center and the town of Fruita, which was once an early Mormon pioneer colony known for its fruit orchards along the Fremont River.
