Arches National Park, located in the Moab region of eastern Utah, is a highlight of any trip to the Southwest, especially for families with children. The park 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. The bright red rock against the deep blue sky is an iconic southwestern sight enjoyed by all ages. This National Park features 2,000 sandstone arches, the worlds highest concentration of natural sandstone arches, including the most famous arch in the park, 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. If you are short on time, you can take the scenic drive past many viewpoints to snap a quick picture. With more time, make sure to to check out the various hiking trails the park has to offer. There are plenty of short hikes that are great for including the Delicate Arch Trail and Delicate Arch Viewpoint Trail (the iconic arch on the Utah license plates), the Park Avenue Trail, and trails in the windows section of the park such as Turret Arch Trail, Double Arch Trail or South Window Viewpoint. If you are feeling adventurous (and energetic), try the Devil's Garden Primitive Trail. Along this loop trail you will see such wonders as Tunnel Arch, Pine Tree Arch, Landscape Arch, Partition Arch, Navajo Arch, Double O Arch, and Dark Angel. Landscape arch is the largest arch on earth and should not be missed! Other notable features in the park include balanced rock, a large boulder that appears to be balancing 128 feet in the air and is a quick hike off of the road. Fiery Furnace, named such from the reddish glow at sunset that resembles a furnace is another great option. This ranger guided tour requires a permit from the visitor center. If you are hoping to avoid crowds, Broken arch is a less frequented spot in the park.

Quick and easy stroll up to the rock. Warm ups for what’s to come

Lightning was CRACKING on our way out to this arch. Jack didn’t even bring his jacket. What a dummy. Right when we got to the viewpoint, it started hailing! It felt like I was getting shot at by a thousand BB guns at once! It was totally worth it though. This arch is sick af. Ran all the way back to the car and made our way out. Great day at Arches

Nice little walk out to the windows. Very neat arches with easy access. Walked all the way up under the North Window and climbed up the side for a great view down the cliff out the other side.

Day 2 in Utah done right! Delicate arch was fully nuking today. No nature walks here, only a clear cut and crowded trail but beautiful nonetheless. The photo my boy Jack and I got should be a freaking postcard. Highly recommend this trail

VERY poorly marked primitive trail. We did the Devils loop but started the loop counterclockwise. There are no signs to guide you along the small dirt foot pathways, which at some parts break off into 2-5 different footpaths in different directions. The only form of signs are cairns (stacked rocks) but this is pointless given there are cairns built all along the false paths. We started @ 8:40 am but those false paths added 60-90 minutes and 1.5 miles to our trip. Bring plenty of water!

great views. not that difficult but going down in the beginning section of the double o arch trail can be a tad bit scary. just go slowly.

Great trail! We were the first car in the parking lot, took the path to the left, and got off the trail almost immediately. We explored on our own for a bit before making our way back to the trail. We checked out quite a few side canyons and still managed to finish in about 3 hours. If you’re nervous about getting lost then do it counter-clockwise to follow the trail markers. They’re a bit more challenging to follow the way we went (still doable). We passed the ranger led tour and agreed that we were glad we did it on our own.

Beautiful hike with wonderful views. easy and lovely but bring water. gets hot later in day.

Great hike. This trail has amazing views the whole way. We started at 6AM and hiked it counter clockwise. Get going early. When we got back to the Landscape Arch trail at 8:30AM there were many people. I agree with another review....get going early.

In my opinion this is the most underrated trail in arches. So beautiful and fun to do. Do it early in the morning for best lighting,

wonderful hike. good workout. beautiful scenery. bring water and sunblock

We were so lucky to draw our permits. This is a spectacular hike, with many different challenging features. Trail is tough to follow and took some teamwork. My sister and I got lost twice, but those detours were incredible in their own right. Take water, and take your time. We were sad when we saw the parking lot after 2.5 hrs (including being lost) and actually turned back and went back in to enjoy a snack break. If you can get a permit, do it!

Easy hike, spectacular view, lots of other people.

Great hike. Went on a cloudy day so it wasn't to hot. I would rate this trail as moderate.

Awesome

Absolutely beautiful hike! Family friendly, and great for kids/people who love to climb around.

This trail has it all: starts off paved, crowded and some quick arches. Then gets a bit funky requiring a nice scramble or two. Gets a bit more challenging (but far less crowded) and then you hit double arch ... very impressive. From there, take the Primitive Trail and things get interesting and more difficult. There are a couple of squirrely parts sliding down rocky abutments and then you hit the big one ... on the side of a rock face with a huge drop off, you have to shimmy along for about 10-12 feet and it is not for the faint of heart. Very easy and quick stroll from there.

This was our favorite hike in Arches ... not long, nothing technical but you get three distinct arches on a nice, flat stroll.

Nice short hike. Can get pretty crowded but the relatively long and steep part thins it out. The arch is huge and impressive but there are other nice views at the top. People are pretty good about lining up for a picture under the arch.
