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.

I did this to prove to my family and friends that these natural wonders can still be seen with an air-conditioned car and your favorite flip flops. No hiking required.

My family and I visited Moab, Utah this past summer and Arches was definitely on the list of places to stop. The hike to Delicate Arch is a bit of a workout, but 100% worth it!! The view is simply beautiful and I definitely recommend you experience it for yourself. Also, account for the heat and bring plenty of water!

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. :/

$25 to enter the park. Bring a lot of water! Hike to delicate arch, it's worth it!
