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.

Bucket list hike, not disappointing. I went in early March, there weren't any crowds and the weather was good.

Uphill incline hike but easy overall and with a rewarding view of La Sal mountains and the arch. Cool petroglyphs as well and a fun lizard.

Amazing views of La Sal Mountains throughout the loop, and 7 arches to enjoy. The hike was not particularly hard although some scrambling involved. My only recommendation is to start it up early as there is not much shade. We started around 8 and we were done in about 3.5 hours.

Really easy trail. Went in late March. The wind made it really cold. I would suggest bringing a jacket. Also the earlier you hit the trail the better if you want to get good pics without a lit of people.

One of the best hikes in Arches National Park. The beginning is up some bluffs with rock scrambles and there are a couple of up and downs, but overall it’s not too difficult. Definitely would recommend if you want a trail that isn’t so busy.

Amazing. Absolutely in the top 5 hikes in the US. Take the time to do the primitive trail. We did it clockwise, came back at sunset. It was magic.

Awesome and love to visit every year! Southwest offers such beautiful landscapes. The Arches something to be desired. The trail is sand, you slip, the weather is so hot in summer, pack water- lots. But you will love it!

One of the best trails we’ve ever hiked! So much fun, felt like a kid climbing. Be sure to do Navajo Arch, so secluded and beautiful.

Great trail for a 1/2 day in Arches. Very little shade, so make sure you bring water, and be prepared to stand in line for the restrooms.

Great hike to start a trip to Arches. Crowded, but good to see so many people getting out there.

You can do it

I like the cold red stone and sand in the early morning.

Neat and sweet

Can't drive all the way to Arches and not do this hike.

Easy with kids, lots of off trail fun.

Lots to see, a little trouble staying on course but enjoyed it a lot. Very long for a hike.

Very easy. Amazing views of several large arches.

Beautiful challenging hike. Top 5 of the US for sure.

A blast with or without kids but with the little ones it’s a blast. We got “lost” and then got LOST. Fun both times!

Beautiful trail with some great shots through arches with marvelous scenery opening behind it like a window to another world. In my personal opinion the trail is moderate and not so hard when it's dry and the temperature is not too high. The primitive trail seemed easier to follow than the main trail because it was correctly marked. Look out for several wrong positioned cairns (possibly built by hikers and not rangers) on the main trail that (sometimes but not always) lead back to the main trail but are quite strenuous in comparison to the official trail. We did the trail clockwise.

Super packed today. Trail repairs and scenic overlooks don't mean block the trail. Get off the trail and if you can't, don't freaking stop.

Just the best I’ve done so far.. For me - that’s the USA

Just a must!

4/12/19 - Lots of traffic, but a nice little trek with many added surprises (if you look closely). A little slippery in spots, but nothing too strenuous (as guide implies).
