A Soaring Red-Rock Wonderland
Feel the expansive power of soaring peaks, giant rocks, and breathtaking views at Arches National Park. With over 2,000 natural stone arches, exploring this geologic treasure is sure to be the adventure of a lifetime.
Set in the high desert of eastern Utah, this National Park boasts a serene setting that evokes expansive stillness and untouched wilderness. Whether you spend the day on a scenic drive or a week hiking the trails, you won’t be disappointed by Arches’ endless beauty. During the cool hours of dusk and dawn, you can spot deer, coyotes, jackrabbits, and a variety of desert songbirds.
As a great family destination, Arches has no shortage of fascinating attractions and captivating memories waiting to be made.
Created millions of years ago, the famous open stones of Arches National Park tell an incredible story. You'll see them everywhere—on drives and hikes and even the Utah license plate! Keep an eye out for the popular Delicate Arch. You'll recognize it right away.
Put the top down and soak up the best views in the park! The Arches Scenic Drive is 36 round-trip miles of pure desert delight dotted with scenic viewpoints that will take your breath away.
Off the Beaten Path
Canyoneering—an adventure sport that involves repelling deep into canyons—is not for the faint of heart. If you're up for a challenge, and you have the skills, head to Fiery Furnace or Lost Spring Canyon to experience the adventure of a lifetime.
The early bird gets the worm during the park's busiest months of the year: May through October. Enter the park before the day breaks to beat the crowds (and the heat) or consider a late afternoon visit. The La Sal Mountains viewpoint is exceptionally beautiful at sunset, so grab someone you love and stay awhile.
