The "Fiery Furnace" was only one of several fantastic arches to view in Arches National Park. A person receives a detailed map upon entering the Park. It's very easy to follow. Several walkable trails are available. Remember to get a National Parks Sticker, will save you some money. Plan on spending at least half a day, depending on how many... More

You see this in the distance and think - what is going on here? It is a lot of red spires and towers - and enjoyable to look at BUT you have to get a permit or go on a guided tour to actually walk into the area - which makes sense since this looks like a maze of rocks... More

If you are adventurous and not afraid to test your hiking skills, the fiery furnace is a great place to go. After exploring most of the Arches National Park, we decided to get a permit (you will need one for the hike) and head into the fiery furnace. Amazing and beautiful! It is a challenging hike for a few reasons,... More

I did the 3-hour Fiery Furnace guided ranger hike in November. The weather was perfect and it was easy to get a same day or next day spot since the park was relatively empty in November compared to the summer season. Our park ranger was really informative and the hike was beautiful. There is a $10 fee. Permits are needed... More

Amazing journey that task at least 3 hrs to complete, very tiring and sort of tough. If you do not like a lot of walking this is not for you, but it truly is a cool experience. Worth the space on your bucket list!

Be sure to make reservations ahead of time. This hike is amazing! We went with my parents who are in their 70's and then again with a group of friends. We were all able to comfortably do the hike. They warn you that it could be difficult but take the chance and go!

We took the Ranger guided tour with our 8 year old son and he had no trouble. The hike was very interesting and the Ranger was very knowledgeable. Unfortunately, my friend hurt his knee during the hike and had to be carried out by rescue personnel. They were all extremely competent and professional. It wasn't the way we wanted to... More

A must do!! Husband and I are 60+ and were somewhat apprehensive. Although it is not a stroll it is absolutely doable for anyone in relative good shape. Experience, scenery is not to be missed!!

Arches national park is incredible. Yet even within this place the guided tour to fiery furnace stands out. I don't know how people can manage to go in there without a ranger - I am good at navigation, but I got lost 10 minutes into the tour. The hike itself is not for an easy stroll, but neither is it...
