Hiking the Fiery Furnace is only done by getting a backcountry permit at the Visitor's Center. For me and two children it was $8. We had to watch a little video and then speak with the rangers before we went out to start our hike. Once we got there we were amazed by the maze this presented us with. WOW!... More

We did the evening guided ranger tour. Extremely well done, lots of info, rather a demanding hike but nice weather, good conditions, guiding ranger was Christian, greats course of info. Would do it again.

If you have time on your visit to Arches National Park arrange to go on the ranger-led hike through Fiery Furnace. At a cost of $10 per person this is a quite amazing experience, but book early as it is very popular. The Fiery Furnace area cannot be reached without either a special permit or to go with a ranger... More

First off the tour is great. They hype it up but its really not that strenuous. Unless your in poor shape or have other health issues you can do it. Yes its HOT. Although it rained on us when we were coming out and it was cold. You have to do a little climbing and scrambling but its worth it.... More

This is an "Arches-Must-Do"! This is a permit only guided hike. Most part of the hike is in shade. The trail is very super fun and beautiful. We found carrying a camel back (hydration pack) to be very helpful here. Because a small section of it we had to use both of our hands and feet to navigate through a... More

I booked this hike 6 months in advance and was very happy that I did. The Rangers in the visitor's center gave us a variety of reasons to not go on the hike, I think, primarily because of our ages (seniors, but very active). We elected to go anyway and would highly recommend this hike to anyone in reasonable shape.... More

Within Arches National Park. Such a neat and weird place! These particular rock formations have very neat colorings to them. Make sure to see it! There is a secret arch within this area of the park as well if you hike it.

Amazing hike through the Fiery Furnace. You have to watch a short video before you are allowed to go in. Get a guide. There were so many hidden trails that you would not see on a "regular" hike. Well worth it the hike and the guide. Would do it again. Breathtaking.
