Short downhill hike near the Arches National Park Entrance with spectacular views of red rock fins and towers. Time: 30 to 60 minutes Arches offers a landscape of contrasting colors, landforms and textures unlike any other in the world. The park has over 2,000 natural stone arches, in addition to hundreds of soaring pinnacles, massive fins and giant balanced rocks. This red rock wonderland will amaze you with its formations, refresh you with its trails, and inspire you with its sunsets. From Park Avenue parking area, the trail descends steeply into a spectacular canyon and continues down the wash to Courthouse Towers. If you have a shuttle driver, you can begin at one point and be picked up at the other. For round-trip hiking, retrace your steps along the trail rather than walk along the park road.

If you have someone picking you up at the far end of the trail this is an easy, all-downhill hike. If not, going up the stairs at the end is the only part that'll require much effort.

I'm not sure why this is moderate...it's very easy. You walk down some steps and then it's relatively flat walking thru rock formations. Very pretty, but not technical at all! I guess maybe walking back up is supposed to be hard?? I would even take small children, it's that easy!

You cannot beat the scenery on this trail. Walking among giant rock formations is awe inspiring. We hiked it twice in one day to maximize lighting for photos and because we love it so much. Temps are comfortable in late October.

La vue du départ est la meilleure, donc l’intérêt de descendre est limité. Il y a tellement mieux à faire dans le parc.
