Arches National Park Overview

Arches National Park is located in southeastern Utah, just minutes from the town of Moab. The fun thing about Arches is everywhere you turn, there is something new to discover. With thousands of natural arches scattered throughout the park you might discover a new one- remember that an arch must have an opening at least 3 feet wide. Delicate arch is a must see. You can either see it from a view point, but most do the 3 mile round trip hike that takes you right to the arch. The fiery furnace is a hike that requires a park guide. The hike is a labyrinth with narrow passages, large sandstone boulders, towering canyons and dead end paths. There really isn’t a trail and it is easy to get lost so stay with your guide. Your trip wouldn’t be completed without a stroll down Park Avenue- a one mile walk through massive sandstone towers.
