Moonscape & Factory Butte

Ever wondered what to see and do on your drive between Capitol Reef, Canyonlands and Arches National Parks? Although the drive between Capitol Reef and the town of Moab (where most visitors base themselves when visiting Canyonlands and Arches National Parks) is only 2.5 hours, those with an extra night up their sleeve should definitely consider the sights around Hanksville. Even more so if you are a drone or ATV enthusiast!


This landscape has been used as a filming location for a few different sci-fi movies. Factory Butte has options for real offroading fun, and has become very popular with photographers, offroaders, and drone operators.
