Arches National Park
Gateway to Another World
This park has about 2,000 windowed arches, towering spires, harrowing hoodoos, and precarious pinnacles on display - such as Balanced Rock, Skyline Arch, and Courthouse Towers. Delicate Arch, perhaps Utah's most iconic feature is a must-hike destination in the park. Arches contains 73,000 acres of varied landscapes, with a paved 40-mile scenic drive from the park entrance to the campground at Devil's Garden. There are numerous parking areas for trail access and scenic overlooks. Two trails, and a viewpoint accessible by car, offer different views of Delicate Arch, the park's most famous geologic feature. Road guides and hiking brochures are available at the visitor center and the park entrance, located five miles north of Moab via US 191. Arches National Park is open year-round, as is the campground.
