It’s one of the historic “trails” in the region and the only one that crosses the waterpocket fold.
I'm stumped on a historic trail that crosses the fold and is outside the park! Even Halls Creek is (I think) inside the boundaries and a quick look at the map shows not much fold south of there. Looking forward to the answer to this one.

Yeah, I had a look at the map as well, as I have been in the process of planning our annual October Utah trip, but it was little help to me also. Could we be looking for the Burr "Trail" Road, but a locale outside the park? Or, perhaps this is a bit of a trick question? Was the picture (Capitol Gorge maybe, which would be a historic route) taken before Capitol Reef was designated as a national park and thus was not in the park at that time?

@regehr is on the right track in the southern Fold. It’s not named on USGS maps. It’s named for a historic ranch that was at the base of the Fold and is one of a couple historic routes/trails in the area. It’s discussed in a guidebook of the region.

Is it Baker Route?

I don't really think this is correct but it sort of looks like the Book Cliffs with the Swell in the distance beyond. where's @Udink when ya need him??
