park city to bryce canyon? or arches? one overnight

We will leave park city and head south. Should we go to Bryce Canyon or the Arches?We will have one overnight. We are leaning Arches as the map shows many scenic stops on the way to Green River. Any suggestions?

We live in Park City and have done one-day trips to both. You can absorb more in a short period of time at Bryce than Moab, but Moab is 30-60 minutes closer. If you just focus on Arches, you'll have a great trip. I honestly wouldn't worry about any stops en route, just get to Moab to take in as much redrock as possible. However, do note that Ray's Tavern in Green River is worth stopping for a burger on the way down or back. If you hammer, you can be in Moab in under four hours pretty easily.

At Arches, do try to do the Delicate Arch at sunset on your arrival day, then spend the next day exploring more. Lots of short hikes in Arches that are great for quick trips including Devil's Garden, Windows, Park Avenue, etc.

Have fun.

Thank you for the advice! Followed everything, although we did stop a few times on 70. Just in awe! .Sunset at Delicate Arch. Good thing we didn't realize how long the trek was to the top but we will remember it for the rest of our lives!! Rays was another highlight! Back in Park City. We will come back to UT soon and do Bryce Canyon. Thanks again!!
