I had a nice intro to backpacking Capitol Reef on my Halls Creek trip last weekend and now I'm thinking I need some more. Curious what people think about Lower Muley vs. Upper Muley Twist and preferred routes. I don't know much about either except that Upper Muley is typically dry(?) and Lower Muley might have more reliable water sources. Sound right? I'm trying not to do a lot of dry camp backpacking right now to keep the load off my knee so I think that means Lower Muley might be the ticket. It looks like there are 3 trailheads for Lower Muley, what is the best route?
