We were surprised to get in free during shutdown. Park was clean, fine. Arches is just extraordinary, with arches, pillars, and a great view of the La Sal mountains. One of America’s great treasures.
We just drove the main route, down to the Windows area,...More
The ‘Rockies’ trip continued through Colorado and in into Utah for a trip through the ‘Canyonlands’. Arches Nat’l Park is beautiful beyond words. I’ve seen pictures all my life, wanting to see in person. All the pictures don’t compare to seeing it in person.
Wake up in the dark, dress warm, bring a light and maybe a thin blanket - it's worth taking in the first sun rays beside the legendary iconic rock formation. The entire area is a sight to see, the bowl and cliff views. The hike...More
Hiking to Delicate Arch is a little difficult: but well worth it! Hiking the last bend in the snow was both fun but scary with a deep drop off to the left and if you're in your mid 60's. But after the bend, WAMO; it's...More
This is a great place to get lost as the trails are NOT marked well or not at all. Visitors are wandering all over everywhere trying to find their way back onto the trails. If you are driving through, it is very scenic, but be...More
A place so beautiful and intense with natural wonders, the scenery will remain imprinted in your mind. From delicate arch to the main arch and various other stone formations with various resemblances to animals such as elephants/mammoths … you imagine it and it s there...More
This is one of the very best national parks. It's truly amazing. Be sure to go online to see all your choices of formations to check out, and the schedule of ranger talks/walks for when you are going. We did a ranger walk, then walked...More

The Arches Drive is accessible and easy. Beautiful short hikes there at balancing rock (more of a walk than hike) or some of the arches. Shorter hikes there. You should also drive Route 128 scenic by-way.

My best suggestion is to go straight to the visitor center and ask them. They have a help desk for this. My favorite is usually any kind of ranger-led hike.

I'm not from Colorado but I recommend Kebler Pass by Crested Butte and the lovely aspens there. Marroon Bells may be tops but Kebler won't disappoint.
Most Critical Advanced Reservations - Utah/Arizona (10 Replies)
We considered a spontaneous trip through primarily southern Utah this summer, only to realize that people weren't kidding about needing to book early :) We are now planning on an October/Fall Break, so while this is still pushing it- seem to be in a bit better place. We are tentatively planning: Zion, Bryce, Moab(Arches, Dead Horse), Page (Antelope, Horseshoe, Lake Powell), Grand Canyon (south rim) - Big Loop. What are the most critical things that require advance reservations? (hotels,...More

I would say most critical are South Rim, Moab, Zion in that order. We were at Arches in early April with construction already underway. Everybody needs to be out of the park by 7 pm, that's non-negotiable. There are warnings that if your car is still there after that time, it may be towed away. We arrived quite early, just after 7 am. It was not yet busy, the park roads were not congested and we easily found parking wherever we wanted to go. Due to circumstances, we left again several...More
