Arches National Park in eastern Utah, is a highlight of any trip to the Southwest. The bright red rock against the deep blue sky will help even the most amateur photographer take stunning photographs. This site features more than 2,000 natural sandstone arches, including the Delicate Arch. In a desert climate millions of years of erosion have led to these structures, while the ground has life-sustaining soil crust and potholes. Other geologic formations are stone columns, spires, fins, and towers. Located near Moab, Utah, it is also a haven for adventure travel and adrenaline junkies. Compared to other National Parks in the region, the highlights can be seen within a day or two. If you are short on time, you can drive past many scenic points to snap a quick picture. With more time, make sure to hike to Delecate Arch (the iconic arch on the Utah license plates), and if you are feeling adventurous (and energetic), try a hike through Devil's Garden. Along this hike you will see such wonders as Tunnel Arch, Pine Tree Arch, Landscape Arch, Partition Arch, Navajo Arch, Wall Arch (which recently fell), Double O Arch, and Dark Angel.

Easy trail. Good for all ages and skill levels.

This trail is awesome. It is one of the hardest hikes I have done but it was well worth it. The trail involves a lot of climbing so if you do not like to climb this is not the trail for you. The trail was a little difficult to follow at times. Make sure to lookout for the cairns and bring lots of water.

Great moderate hike with the famous delicate arch at the end. The arch was much bigger than I had anticipated. Worth the hike

Beautiful hike worth the adventure. I'm a frequent hiker unfamiliar with hiking in Utah heat and would recommend hiking early if possible, as heat was the most challenging aspect. Don't be discouraged by the view of large slick rock at the start, it's really not as bad as it seems. Worth it! I'm afraid of heights and was able to do this with minimal difficulty
