Halls Creek Overlook Trail

A 2 day loop in Capitol Reef National Park - down Lower Muley Twist canyon into Halls Creek. We then exited via the Halls Creek Overlook Trail and hiked north to the 'Post Trail' back into Lower Muley Twist. Despite some heavy rain this was another great trip with huge alcoves, a perfect slickrock camp, hiking above the canyons and an old arrowhead midden site.
