Drive through Arches National Park and see the highlights along the way, with a few stops for optional hikes to see more This driving tour will take you to every major sight in Arches National Park and then some. Start at the Visitor Center to learn some background about the park and the area's history before driving along the main road through the park. Stop at Park Avenue to walk through a canyon with wild rock formations on either side, stop at several turnoffs along the way to see such wonders as The Three Gossips, Courthouse Towers, and Balanced Rock. Hike around The Windows and walk through some arches there while you see Double Arch up close and personal. Then venture further into the park where you can hike to Delicate Arch, the most famous arch in the park and the one featured on Utah license places. Finally, end with a hike through Devils Garden where you will see some of the best arches in the park all within a short walking distance along a paved path. Go as far as Landscape Arch, the longest arch in the world, or finish the entire 7.2-mile loop by seeing Double-O Arch and walking back along The Primitive Trail If you see everything in this guide, you have seen everything in Arches National Park and will have the memories (and the pictures) for a lifetime.

This place is beholding! All the rock formations and how they pile on top of each other (and stay where they're at) is beyond me. Also, be careful where you walk because there are growing plants and organisms on the rocks that your eye can't easily notice. Natural wonder, indeed! I'll go back someday.

So, so stunning and a variety of lengths of well kept trails. The arches never fail to amaze, but such a bummer that dogs can't go on trails. :/

Great ride to get to some fantastic vistas and hikes catering to all abilities. The highway can get busy; we visited on an early spring Friday and encountered difficulties finding parking at some vistas and trailheads at midday.

Very easy, short hikes to many of the arches and formations. There are a couple more difficult hikes such as Delicate Arch and Double O Arches if you're feeling adventurous. Certainly one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen and worth the time. Kids would have a great time as well. If you stay in Moab, it's just about 10 min. outside of the town.

Arches is one of those must-see places. Incredible red rock and plenty of short hikes to beautiful formations. It can get very crowded in the summer, so go during off times. If possible, camp around the park for a sky full of glowing stars.
