Another good trail that starts at the end of the parking lot near the old schoolhouse takes you past some very faint Fremont Indian pictographs on the way up to the superb Hickman bridge. On the trail up are another couple of small bridges over the wash before coming out into the open in front of the bridge, over 40 metres wide.

On the south side of the visitors centre is a 40 km round trip scenic drive that takes you out to the famous Capitol Gorge. In the gorge is a short trail that takes you to the "Pioneer Register", a rock wall where ancient pioneers passed through this canyon in their wagons and stopped to sign their name.

In Grand Wash, also off the scenic drive, an arduous trail goes up for a close up of Cassidy Arch. I preferred to take my pic from down below.
