We spent 2 days in the park and it wasn't nearly long enough. The first day we were there we had sunshine, but the second day we were there it was a downpour - complete with thunder and lightning. It helped because the park was empty and ominous. Super fun to photograph. We walked as many short and long tails... More

One breathtaking scene after the other. It was cold & late in the day when we came so it was almost deserted. The only drawback was it was cloudy so my pictures weren't the greatest. Easy hikes to the various arches. We'll do it again

Aside from being a very long way from anywhere, Arches National Park is magnificent. The roads and trails provide viewing and hiking options to satisfy sightseers ranging from near-couch potatoes to experienced hikers. There are several relatively short trails that bring you right up and under many incredible rock formations. Even the views from the observation areas adjacent to the... More

Arches National Park is a beautiful park full of gorgeous arches and beautiful natural monoliths. I spent a good portion of my visit in the car. Unfortunately the park is not dog friendly, so my little one stayed in the car while I ran out and snapped photos and marveled at the giant stone structures. So if you are handicapped... More

If you want amazing scenery and a moderate hiking experience, this is well worth the 3 mile hike. The Arch is an example of how nature creates beauty that you must experience to truly appreciate.

When the world was created, the artist drew a picture and staged the Arches NP. Hiking, viewing and enjoying one of natures most incredible places is a must.

When we fist arrived at Arches National Park, we had no idea what was in store for us, but it wasn't long until we realized that we had a "trip of a lifetime" ready for us to embark. First you actually have to drive up a winding road to get to the Delicate Arch parking lot. You park your care... More

There are lots of arches. It is a great park to walk and take pictures. Some of them, you have to walk a lot or do offroad in a high clearance vehicle. If you go to Moab, you have to go!

If you're anything of a red rock fan, don't miss this park. Delicate arch is spectacular at sunrise. climb up into the first arch you see just off the trail when you reach the final ledge for another view of delicate. If you have more time , be sure to go all the way to the end of the road... More
