Of all the National Parks that we tell people to visit, this one is certainly towards the top of the list. Arches National Park is an exceptionally beautiful place and one whose landscape could change at any time as it is home to more than 2,000 natural sandstone arches. Fiery red rocks, sharp canyons and distinctive formations are just some of the natural phenomena that you can find while making a trip here. One of the best hikes that we've ever done was the 3mi roundtrip hike to see Delicate Arch that allowed us to scale sheer cliffsides and admire petroglyphs of the Ute Indian tribes. Arches' Park Avenue is also a favorite experience of ours of any National Park we've visited.
Heads Up: Starting Summer 2022, Arches will be testing out a timed entry program during the busy season to limit crowds and improve experience - be sure to reserve in advance!
