This will great you at Arches National Park and is just one of so many wind sculpted rock formations to see. I would recommend at least three days to visit as there are many sites that will take more than an hour to get to and back from on foot. Take plenty of water and have good hiking boots.

This is a short hike at one of the first pull outs that you reach after entering Arches National Park. It is wonderful. The trail is about a mile long, starting with a descent into a canyon then you hike through the canyon finishing opposite the parking area for Balanced Rock. It was late September and the only person on... More

We did this trail in the morning and were virtually alone for the majority of the walk. A few rabbits and other wild life. Sadly a graffiti artist left some crude drawings, so we spent about 30 minutes cleaning them off with sand.

Like a prologue to a novel, the 3 Gossips and Tower of Babel beckon you into an experience of massive natural wonder. No arches at this site, just a glimpse at the power of the erosive forces of nature at work in the park. Nice intro. Just down the road we encountered an NPS employee and volunteer searching for invasive... More

We were fortunate to have 2 cars since we had split up earlier in the day so we spotted 1 car at Courthouse Towers and then started our hike up the hill at the Park Avenue Trailhead. The lighting wasn't as good as it would have been earlier in the day but the shade and the downhill grade were helpful... More

Our first stop while in Arches National Park was Park Avenue. Since we were short on time, we didn't have the opportunity to do the hike, but, we loved admiring the gorgeously massive and incredible rock formations. As we were snapping our pictures, we spoke with a kind man who had just finished the hike. He recommended walking down the... More

Around every turn, so much beauty. Never a disappointment no matter which direction you look. Hiking sticks, water and good walking shoes a must for all the park areas.

This was our first stop at the Arches National Park. Although the walk down the trail was interesting. I would recommend just viewing from the top of the trail as it is a difficult trip down and back up. Save your strength for the other trails.
