Spend a week in Moab, and after hiking every trail in Arches NP, signed up to Fiery Furnace ranger led hike. The hike turned out better than expected (afternoon hike). Ranger Matt was very engaging with the group (25 very interested individuals ages 10 - 75, I estimate) and alternated very well between hiking, scrambling between rocks and providing timely... More

There are a couple private companies that can take you on a tour of the Fiery Furnace, but for $10/person I would take the ranger led one any day. Our guide was Lisa and she was fantastic. Truly loved her job and was enthusiastic about the park. Learned a ton. Our group was fairly large (21) but manageable and not... More

First of all the hype about how scary it was is over blown. I am very scared of heights and this did not bother me at all. What is more important is if you are in good physical condition. One woman sprained her ankle but I don't think she was in good shape. There are some tight squeezes, so that... More

I booked a ranger guided tour for $10 each on line (very easy) well in advance of our visit. Access to the fiery furnace is restricted and has a daily visitor limit but there are other options to a ranger lead hike. While the hike is not easy with scrambling over rocks and squeezing through tight gaps, it can be... More

Beautiful areas of the park- go with a guide for the full immersion and visiting of the hidden sights. The hike is not difficult, but some areas take time to navigate slowly (squeeze through or otherwise traverse using legs and arms).

Tons of bright RED rocks shooting up like flames from the earth. it definetely suits it's name. The people that named the arches and different areas in Arches were spot on.

I was lucky enough to trade my Friday 2 pm pass in for Thursday at 10 am.(the reservation system fills up very quickly...start months in advance for the 10 am hike, otherwise you're stuck with whatever is available when you come in person...in my case, the earliest availability was 4 days away!!) Ranger Glenn was entertaining, professional and did a... More

I would highly recommend this experience. Plan ahead and book this with the Arches National Park Program at least 4 months ahead. It will only cost you $10.00 with a Park Ranger instead of $80-$90 with a private company. The perfectly paced hike and the educational talks made this hike more doable for older people like me and my husband.... More

Our tour of the Fiery Furnace with Deep Dessert Tours was the highlight of our trip. At 65 and 70, we were a bit apprehensive, but Charlie-the owner Mike's other guide- made it completely doable. The Furnace is an amazing place and the bit of challenge made us feel like we had gone a outside our normal range and had... More
