Not a hike but a quick walk to the viewpoint. Worth the stop!

Too short to be a hike, this is a quick walk to an overlook & back. It’s worth the stop.

May 2019 trip to Southwest, fifth visit to UT, last time was 10 years ago in late spring. Day 5 This was mine first National Park I visit 22 years ago in late spring. Now is second time. Just get lucky to see this unusual geological area before thunderstorm. Wish I could hike, perhaps someday? But I hike Devils Garden.

As of 6/9/2020, the Fiery Furnace path that starts at the same trailhead, is closed unfortunately. This viewpoint is still accessible however!

Awesome trail! We enjoyed exploring all the dead ends and lots of backtracking to find our way thru. Plan on lits of boulder climbing, navigating narrow slots and lots of rock scrambling. A 1.7 mile hike ended up being 5 miles of fun. Good luck to anyone trying to follow our route thru the Fiery Furnace :)

Great viewpoint, especially with the snowy mountains in the background. Definitely take a quick 5-10 minute stop here. It’s one of the most interesting places in the whole park.

The fiery furnace is definitely one of the most impressive features at this park

Not very exciting. I think there are nicer views for sunrise/sunset

Usually nothing but a 5-star rater because, nature. But the fence is so far back you can’t see any of the fins that make up the “furnace”.... maybe I missed them as others seem to have had better experiences but not a lot of reward here. I’m sure the furnace is beautiful, wherever it is.....

The view point is amazing. If I didn’t have heat exhaustion the day before, I would have gone into the fiery furnace (it’s not actually hot).

Super easy hike to stretch the legs a little if you drive the scenic tour.

Hard to call the walk to the viewpoint a hike. But the view is great. The tour of the Fiery Furnace is much better.

The path was a little muddy as it had snowed/sleeted earlier. It’s a viewpoint that’s close to the fiery furnace, but we saw points further away on the road that made the furnace look more interesting.

Our group didn't enjoy this walk. It was very easy, but the views weren't that great. I would recommend spending your time elsewhere.

This was sort of anti climactic, however, it was very interesting enough for a stop. If you are running out of time I would choose something else to squeeze into your time in Arches.

Another Must-see in a fantastic landscape of unforgettable sites. there is a roundabout hike here much longer than shown on these viewpoint pages worth hiking.

Due to an approaching storm, we quickly ventured out to the Fiery Furnace observation point. The clouds cast a dark shadow over most of the Furnace area, so the conical oven shaped rocks weren’t lit with fire. The wind was really whipping up so we high-tailed it back to the car. Good overview from this point.
