This photo doesn't really do the Fiery Furnace justice. It's actually famous for the hundreds and hundreds of rock spires closely formed together. The name comes from the incredible sight this section of Arches National Park shows at sunrises and sunsets. When the light hits the rock spires it looks just like a giant acres of fiery flames.

My family (kids ages 8-14yrs) really enjoyed the Ranger-led Fiery Furnace Tour. You MUST reserve tickets online through the nps.org site 6 months in advance for a morning tour (ideal) OR up to 7 days before the tour, you can pick up tickets for an afternoon tour, if available. The only other way to visit FF is with a private... More

My two adult sons and I were on a two week camping and backpacking trip and were visiting Arches. Our original plan was to go on the ranger led hike but the next available was in two days. So we decided to get a permit ($3 pp) and try it ourselves. We had to watch a video that was informative... More

We took a 3 hour tour with a park ranger named Sam. She was excellent and well prepared. Throughout the tour, we learned about the Fiery Furnace and the wildlife that lives in it. We also climbed and scrambled through the many fins and rocks. Sam was very helpful with the climbing, and showed us various ways of moving through... More

This is a hike you need to book in advance. This ranger led hike takes about 3 hours to complete and brings you to places that the general public does not have access to. There are different "obstacles" that you must be able to hike on but I think most people would be able to complete this. Balance, good hiking... More

The Ranger led tour of this fiery furnace is great. Only cost $10 a person and took about 3 1/2 hours. Lots of climbing and some scooting around the rocks on your butt however it is nothing that a person in reasonable health would have a problem with. Being this close to the high rocks and arches is a phenomenal... More

Windgate Adventure Tours with Eric is the BEST way to see this great American adventure in Arches. Having Eric lead us through this maze was the most exciting experience and also the most informative. We saw one tour that had over 25 people in it (10.00) and we were a group of 4!!!!! Yes, we paid more than 10 dollars... More

This is a maze of rock fins, arches and cracks. You need a permit to hike in the furnace and they only give out about 60 a day. There is a ranger-led hike that you can book on line and sometimes they let you sign up at the visitor center. (When we were there the next available ranger-led hike was... More
