    The Kingdom Route/Overland Route is now open again and the parking area (WGS 84, 37.61615, -110.79873) at the trail head can be parked in, but only within the established boundaries laid out. Cars will be towed if not within boundaries. A few years back Glen Canyon National Recreation Area closed it, as off road parking is prohibited. Capitol Reef National Park rangers worked with Glen Canyon National Recreation Area rangers to get the compromise and the parking lot established and this historic route officially re-opened. The route is used to access the Miller Creek Canyons (Poe, Baboon, Dog) and also used to access the Halls Creek Narrows. A backcountry camping permit is required for camping within Capitol Reef National Park.

    Note from me
    Big win. Thanks to the canyoneering loving rangers that worked long and hard to make this happen.
