Park Avenue Trail is a nice walk in the riverbed, a bit steep at begin and the flat. You can enjoy a lot of different rocks and shapes. I did it with my daugther 14 in 30 mins walking quietly and looking around. The trail ends at The Organ, so if some of your party wants to walk and other... More

I assume if you are in Moab, UT you are seeing Arches National Park. I could write a review of each thing to see but it would be a waste of my time. If your in Arches.... GO see everything... This will take more than a day .. for sure. Plan on at least 2 if not more. We did... More

Once you enter Arches National Park, the first feature of the park you will encounter is Park Avenue. From a viewpoint, you can see the beautiful rock walls on both sides of the hiking trail below.

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
