Sulphur Creek is an amazing journey down a small stream under towering cliffs in Capitol Reef National Park. The 6 mile point to point hike starts at Chimney Rock in a dry wash that soon meets up with a stream where you spend the majority of the time hiking in and out of ankle/shin deep water. The hike passes under the goose necks overlook, past three water falls, and ends behind the visitors center.
Before starting out make sure you check the water depth behind the visitors center, If the water is ankle to shin deep you should have a fantastic time. If the water is over knee deep it could make things very dangerous especially for small children. In most conditions with ankle deep water behind the visitors center you can find a few knee deep holes along Sulphur Creek and after a recent flood there could be a chest deep pool so if you have camera gear you may want to bring a dry bag. Sulphur Creek does drain a fairly large area that's not visible after you start hiking so be aware of the weather forecast.
