The Hickman Bridge Trail is just one of the many trails you can hike when visiting Capitol Reef National Park in Utah. It is a 2.2 mile round trip with an elevation change of 400 feet and is listed as a moderate trail. I will show you why moderate when I take you hiking up to the bridge itself next week.
Here is the view after you step away from the parking lot as you get ready to take on the trail. Where the couple is standing is a trail map and actual trail guides you can take with you for a donation. What I really appreciated about the trail and the trail guide is that there were numbered posts that when you referred back to your guide, let you know where you were, what you were looking at and gave you an idea of how much further you had to go.
This is the relatively flat and very sandy part of the trail. It changes when you turn the corner at the end of the red sandstone rocks on the left.
