The hike in Fiery Furnace requires a hiking permit from the Park's Visitor Center. You can request a permit for up to one week in advance. All members of your hiking group are required to be present when applying for the permit. My suggestion is that you make this the first stop on your visit .This is not an experience... More

This was our second un-guided trip into the FF and again, we just loved the entire experience. This time we mostly followed the very small route arrows (one was up about 8' on a boulder, so be alert). Getting to the "small" arch is easy but you need to take the first "dead end" sign route and back-track to get... More

We had a blast!! You need a $6 permit to get in from the visitor center and everyone must watch a short video and listen to the park ranger. The entire process only takes about 20-40 minutes. You want to take a lot of water and snacks or lunch. We used the "Map my hike " App to help us... More

After obtaining a permit for the umptinth time I enjoyed my favorite of all places. If you're a first-timer, do the guided hike. If you're not fit for that there is an awesome overlook (My wedding was there.) and if you're not able for that, be sure to be in the parking lot at sunset. AMAZING! The hiking inside is... More

While we loved the delicate arch and the landscape arch along with the court house. I find it a bit over-hyped.

In light of the end of commercial guiding permits, and due to the fact that official ranger tours are going to fill up *fast* this year, I just wanted to say that exploring the furnace on your own (with a $6 permit, of course) is not nearly as difficult as is often described. If you're moderately skilled at off-trail desert... More

Our group of friends have visited recently the Fiery Furnace. What an experience! We saw interesting rock formation, high walls and fins that creates a fun red maze. Paid $6 entrance fee per person at visitor centre. This is a highly recommended activity at Arches National Park. Wear comfortable shoes, bring enough water with you and remember how you got...

If you're looking for an adventure and prepared to do some limited climbing, this is the place for you. There are no trails, and it is like a maze, but it's worth the time. The park service makes to watch a video, and they only let 50 people in per day (permit required). You need to carry lots of water,... More

Fiery Furnace is 15 miles from the park entrance. The attraction is an area of red rock formations that glow red in the setting sun. For most people, it will be a quick stop at a parking area that has a restroom and short walkway to an overlook. Hikes into the rocky passages are available, but require a guide or... More
