This is one of the better National Parks if you are into great scenery and fun family hikes. Our son is 4 years old and was able to do some of the shorter hikes around the arches. The sand dune arch is especially good for small kids who can walk. Highly recommend!

Bloody marvellous place. Only managed to see the arches at the Windows area and that took us at least 2 hours. We shall be back to spend at least 2 full days there.

Spectacular scenery but not always fully accessible to folks with limited hiking capability. [This has more than 50 characters already and I have nothing more I care to say. . . if TripAdvisor doesn't like it, I'll opt out as a reviewer.]

All I have to say is you have to see it! You can walk the trails or just drive through. Make sure to stop at the Visitors Center before you drive through and watch the movie.

This is a very beautiful place, and the arches are very impressive. We drove all the road in the park, and did most of the overlooks. We hiked to the Upper Delicate Arch Viewpoint, but wished we would have had time to hike all the way out to Delicate Arch. An easy, but fun and different arch is Sand Dune... More

Interesting rock formations shaped by wind in a desert setting. Many of the best views involve some walking - so try to make an early start in the day.

We travelled an extra few hundred miles to see this and were rather underwhelmed by it. Admittedly we only went a little way into the park and didn't hike too far. The Window arches are impressive and only required a short walk. Considering how much space there is in the park the car parking is pathetic so get there early.... More

This is a must see if you have never been. The trip can take as long or as short as you like. Take a lot of water because, it can get hot.

Unfortunately we visited Arches in July so it was about 100 degrees .... you definitely need to get up and get in the park early so you can hike to some of the most popular arches. Also .. .skip the visitor center until the end - you are given a map by the ranger when you come through the gate........ More

Arches is amazing!! Don't miss this wonderful park!!! The scenes of the mountains and the arches and windows are breath-taking! Children will also love this park. The map is easy to follow - sunsets are awesome!
