Stop at the visitor center of Capitol Reef National Park, 8 miles (13 kilometers) from Torrey, to find out what kind of outdoors experience you can have during your stay. Pick up maps and tour operator brochures and get ready to explore the surrounding environment. The park encompasses a vast tract of otherworldly rock formations. Explore deep canyons, windswept cliffs and the intriguing Navajo-sandstone Waterpocket Fold. Hike or drive through this mesmerizing landscape and camp overnight at shaded campgrounds.

Travel northwest from Torrey to reach the mountainous Fishlake National Forest, which features pristine aspen woodlands, mountain meadows and a lake stocked with trout. Dixie National Forest stretches across southern Utah to the west of Torrey. Check out red-rock spires and hike through stands of ponderosa pines.
