Arches National Park

When driving through Arches National park, everywhere you turn, there is something new to discover. With thousands of natural arches scattered throughout the park you might discover a new arch, and remember that in order to be considered an arch, the opening must be at least 3 feet wide. Delicate Arch is a must see. You can see it from a view point, but most choose the 3 mile, round trip hike which leads right to the arch. The Fiery Furnace is a hike which requires a park guide. The hike is a labyrinth of narrow passages, large sandstone boulders, towering canyons, and dead end paths. There is no trail and it is easy to get lost, so stay with your guide. Be sure to complete your trip with a stroll down Park Avenue- a one mile walk through massive sandstone towers. 

A red rock wonderland

 

Visit Arches and discover a landscape of contrasting colors, landforms and textures unlike any other in the world. The park has over 2,000 natural stone arches, in addition to hundreds of soaring pinnacles, massive fins and giant balanced rocks. This red rock wonderland will amaze you with its formations, refresh you with its trails, and inspire you with its sunsets.
