Arches National Park Travel Guide

Arches National Park is located in a 4,000-foot high red and arid desert in southern Utah. This unearthly 73,000-acre area contains over 2,000 natural stone arches, the globe’s largest concentration of these geological wonders.

Scattered with peculiarly eroded sandstone structures such as spires, pinnacles, fins, boulers, craters and of course, arches, Arches has a mystical feel to it. Visitors can go on a 40-mile round-trip to marvel at the main sights, above all Skyline Arch, Fiery Furnace, Balanced Rock and the park’s most popular image, Delicate Arch. This unique destination offers visitors all kinds of activities; hikers may follow the footprints of ancient Native Americans, while rock climbers and horseback riders can get stuck in too. If you are up for a matchless, dream-like experience, Arches National Park is a top destination.
