As you enter Arches National Park, you don't have to drive very far to see this awesome site. I did not have the opportunity to walk the trail as I visited this toward the approaching sunset. It was amazing to see how the vertical walls...More

This was our first hike in the park and it really set the atmosphere for the rest of the park. There are no arches but the different rock formations were amazing. We started from the top observation area and walked down the wash about 3/4...More

one of the best places in UTAH, not to miss. Visit early summer or early fall to get nice weather to enjoy

This is at the start of the road through Arches and very enjoyable. The view point itself is very convenient and the trail easy to walk in about 1,6 km.

The park avenue trail was the first place we stopped after entering the park. There is a scenic overview area where you can view the area, so you don’t have to hike the trail if you don’t want to. The hike is about a mile...More
