We didn't realise you had to book so far in advance to do this unguided. We gave it a shot and it was really cool - but it would have been much better to do with a guide. We... read more

Unfortunately, we did not have a reservation with a ranger to go into the Fiery Furnace, but we did get a chance to experience the scenery from the viewpoint. As you make your way through the Arches National Park, you can't skip over the incredible scene of the Fiery Furnace along your way.

We've been on a 2 week vacation... Tetons, Yellowstone, Dinosaur Monument, Arches, and Canyonlands. My 4 teens all agreed, this hike has been their favorite so far! We reserved a 9am slot ahead of time on the NPS online system. The hike is only accessible with an approved guide. Alison was our Park Ranger guide and she was awesome. I... More

You must have a reservation for a Ranger led hike. Morning hikes book on line and fill up months in advance. Evening hikes must be reserved in person at the visitor center up to 7 days in advance. We raced( well,drove as fast as an RV can go) last Tuesday from Bryce to get 6 tickets for Thursday hike. We... More

You can't hike the Fiery Furnace without tickets for a guided tour or a permit. The tour was adventurous and very informative. We loved scrambling over the red rocks, and we learned so many interesting things about Arches. You need to be in decent shape for the tour. An elderly woman was really struggling on ours.

There is only one option to visit Fiery Furnace and it is with a Ranger led walking tour. So we did... The tour is great, requires a bit of acrobatics but provides great and interesting views of the towers, the monuments and the valleys... However, the educational component is like returning to high school with a dump of information without... More

Our favorite place in all of Arches. Went to the visitor center early in the morning to book an afternoon tour and so happy we did.

You need a permit to enter here which is acquired at the Visitor's Center, after a mandatory viewing of an educational video. It's worth going with a guided tour if you get turned around easily, as you don't want to get lost in here. Amazing place though if you're oriented. Like no place on earth.

A pretty cool feature of the NP but really shines under good light. A very short walk to this one. Bring a wide angle lens, although some of our close up shots look pretty cool too.

Didn't get the luck to join the ranger-led tour but the sun set lighting on the brown-red narrow canyons was great to take photos of (visited Oct 2014). There was a boardwalk to the small lookout deck from where we could enjoy the awesome view.
