An accessible and easy achievable short trail. Most people stopped at the information board and missed out on a great experience. This is a stunning early morning stroll, with some fantastic views and welcome shade!

There aren't enough adjectives to describe the wonders on view in these National Parks. The formations are magnificent. The colors are awesome. You feel like you're in every western movie you saw as a child walking and driving thru here.

Started at the Courthouse Towers end, which has great views of the Gossips, Sheep Rock and the Tower of Babel. Trail itself has many great formations and views.

If you go down Park Avenue, it's a very easy little hike. You just need someone to pick you up on the other end. It's not a very long walk about a mile. It's interesting walking through the canyon and down the dry creek bed. You get to see a view named rocks like the Three Gossips, Nefertiti's Head, the... More

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
