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.
