This is a small, wonderful park. There is a great (separate) bike path; two drive-through arches on the main road. And great stopping places for walks into the bright red rocks and places fro picnic. There also is an interpretive center.
It's on the road between Bryce and Zion so it's easy to catch. The colors are brilliant.
I just love this place!

Apparently it's been closed for a few weeks because of a big amount of rain in the area. We saw a sign that said closed temporarily. I was very upset that we couldn't do this activity.

Required to walk up to the beginning of the track.
The route passes in red and pink rocks. Shaded.
Experienced hikers. Worth the effort.

Highly recommended for the family. Interesting views for those not familiar with the desert scene. We were able to do it with young children and everyone had fun.

An easy half-hour drive from Eilat along the Egyptian border - the hike is a well marked leisurely walk through a beautiful red sandstone canyon, carved out via flooding and erosion. A small scramble down the canyon makes an "adventure" for small kids - but anyone reasonably fit can do it with no problem. The whole walk is about an hour to hour and a half - but bring water any time of year!
