So much fun getting lost in the fiery furnace. The hassle of getting the permit was well worth it. I'll be back next time I'm in arches!

Wow! This was an amazing hike/Rock scramble. We are fit, not scared of heights and hike at home in CO all the time. I would caution anyone with young kids, not in good shape or afraid of heights to avoid the permit and do other easy hikes! There was a search and rescue today...there is no room for error in a few spots. That said, it was awesome!

Amazing time exploring! Start the trail on the right so incase you loose your way you can follow the arrows.
