66 Reviews
Arches National Park
The eroded red rock wonderland of Arches National Park houses more than 2,000 natural stone arches, the densest concentration in the world. Geological marvels abound—here you’ll find hundreds of soaring pinnacles, the iconic Delicate Arch, and Landscape Arch, the largest natural arch in the world at 290 feet (88 meters) across. 

The Basics
Arches National Park is one of Utah’s top attractions, with more than 1 million visitors each year. Whether travelers want to stroll through the desert landscape on a day trip or venture into the backcountry on a multi-day excursion, methods for exploring the park are as varied as the sandstone arches within. Travelers can learn to mountain bike amid the spectacular rock formations, take a 4-wheel tour of the park’s top points of interest, or experience the park as part of a multi-day guided journey through Utah’s most popular national parks, including Zion, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, and Canyonlands National Park. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Arches National Park is a must-see attraction for adventure travelers and outdoor enthusiasts.
  • Don’t forget to bring sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat, and plenty of water. Shade is rare in the park’s desert environment. 
  • Wear comfortable shoes suitable for walking over uneven surfaces. 
  • The Arches Visitor Center offers free Wi-Fi. 
  • Several trails, picnic grounds, and viewpoints are wheelchair accessible, as is the Arches Visitor Center. 

How to Get There
Arches National Park is located in southeast Utah, five miles (eight kilometers) north of Moab on US 191. Most visitors arrive by car or as part of a guided tour from Moab or Salt Lake City. The nearest major airport is Grand Junction Regional Airport, roughly 90 minutes by road from the park. 

When to Get There
Arches is busiest from March through October; during this time, plan to arrive in the early morning or late afternoon to avoid traffic. Summer temperatures regularly break 100°F (38°C), while spring and fall weather can be more comfortable. There are no ranger-led programs offered in winter, but the lack of crowds makes this a peaceful time to visit.

Hiking in Arches National Park
As one of Utah’s most accessible national parks, Arches offers a wide variety of hiking trails, many of which are rated as easy or moderate. Popular easy hikes take visitors to Landscape Arch or Balanced Rock, while the most popular park trail—a strenuous 3-mile (4.8-kilometer) trek—leads to the iconic Delicate Arch.
