NOTICE: A temporary closure to protect sensitive resources is in effect for the following areas: Cassidy Arch Canyon and Shinob Canyon (this includes Na-gah, Nighthawk, and Timpie). These areas are closed to the public, effective immediately, until August 31, 2022.
A permit is required for any and all canyoneering within the boundaries of Capitol Reef National Park. Permits have a group-size limit that varies depending on the canyon or route. A separate permit is required for each canyoneering route. Currently, there is no quota limit nor permit cost, though that is likely to change at some point in the future. Permits can be obtained onsite through a self-serve kiosk located just outside of the visitor center or by sending and email to email@example.com using the following format:
Subject: Name of canyoneering route and date you will be canyoneering.
