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...

We signed up for the ranger led hike through the fiery furnace in Arches National Park. 6 of us, ranging from 52 down to 23 years old. Wonderful time, beautiful scenery! Took us about 3 hours.

Took the ranger lead tour with my wife. The views were fantastic. Our ranger was Kait and she did a fantastic job. A lot of information and was very concerned about everyone's safety. I would recommend to do this hike.

We went through the Moab Adventure center to book this hike being you have to have a guide. We were so happy we did this because we only had 4 people in our group which made for a better experience. This is a magical place, it's silence and beauty are awesome. By far our favorite part of our trip..it's a... More

Ranger Allison was informative and ensured everyone was safe on this 90+ hike, 2 mile walk. We definitely would have been lost without a guide. That said, it was disappointing that a family did not follow the rules, bringing two children under the age of five on the hike---also 22 people were too many for this experience. Middle school age... More
