This is one neat national park. A closed loop will take you past many impressive rock formations. You can make stops along the way and take hikes to see things more close-up. The Park Ave Trail is an easy walk and one of the first you come upon as you enter the park. Read the signs to get more info... More

This was our introduction to Arches National Park. The very easy down hill hike is a terrific introduction and warm up for what is to come. Have a member of your party drop you off at the top of the trail and then park the car at the bottom for a one-way acclimation hike of about 1/2 mile

Beautiful red rocks and more packed into one mile. The view at the trail head is worth the stop whether or not you take the hike. A good work out coming back to the top unless you get picked up at the bottom of the trail. Well worth a visit. Good for families.

We did this hike in the early morning before getting on the road to Capitol Reef, as it's the closest hike to the entrance. We really enjoyed the morning crispness and quiet down in the valley of this hike, which slopes gently downhill the whole way and really is more of a stroll than a hike. It was cool to... More

This is an amazing set of rocks that seem like this the main street in New York, park avenue. Huge big edifices seem like skyscrapers. This is an easy flat hike too so no worries but keep drinking lots of water

Don't pass this by. You won't see any arches on this hike but you will see lots of wildflowers and stunning scenery. You descend into the canyon down some steep steps but once down, you are walking on fairly level ground for the duration of the 1 mile hike. You can turn around and return the way you came or...

I really enjoyed this trail - one of my favorite things in the park. Other than the stairs descending into the canyon at the beginning, the rest of the trail is fairly level on rock through the bottom of the canyon with awesome rock formations on all sides. I would consider it a must do!

This valley is unreal. The arches in the park are the big draw but this stop is great. The size of the "fins" are skyscrapers! Take time to walk down into the valley a ways. Tip: Make this your first stop into the park and the last one out. The light and time of day changes and the colors are... More
