Arches National Park
Utah, United States
Designated as a National Park in 1971
This site features more than 2,000 natural sandstone arches, with some of the most popular arches in the park being Delicate Arch, Landscape Arch and Double Arch. Millions of years of erosion have created these structures located in a desert climate where the arid ground has life-sustaining biological soil crusts and potholes that serve as natural water-collecting basins. Other geologic formations include stone pinnacles, fins, and balancing rocks.

This place deserves 10 stars. There were definitely not a lot of people around and honestly it was too cold, foggy to enjoy the driving but Arches was amazing. Bring yak tracks to be able to walk on icy trails. Lovely quaint town.
Wonderful place! A lot of memories and a great place to spend time in family or group or even as a couple. You can spend hours in there. There are places to walk through, places to seat down and eat, few places with bathroom. I paid $30 to go in, in my opinion, it is expensive, and the park should consider to go down with their prices, but the visiting is really worth.
Great place!! Certainly get here early. The driving tour is amazing and it’s extremely easy to pull off along the road in the many provided alcoves to take pictures or park to start some hikes. Most wonders are just a short walk while some can be up to a couple miles. During winter bring crampons even if you don’t use. Many places were quite icy and I saw many people eat it haha. Otherwise a beautiful must see place.
Utah is such an amazing place visit if you like national parks! We stopped at Arches, Capital Reef, and Canyonlands and each one was spectacular in its own way. Arches was amazing for the unique rock formations, and the arches as it's name suggested. The Fiery Furnace (permit required) is also tons of fun if you looking for even more adventure. Watching a sunset from Delicate Arch was probably the highlight of the trip and then staying even after sunset as the stars are absolutely amazing.
This is an amazing drive through the high desert with a lot of really awesome natural arches. Drive through at sunset and enjoy amazing skies and light hitting all the stone 😍. I would love to return with an RV and just enjoy some peace away from people. It’s quite secluded and away from things in SW Utah.
This place is spectacular!!!!! So much parking and clean restrooms. All of the trails are clearly marked get your map at the entrance. Most of them are a quick hike but there are some challenging ones for the more experienced. We ended up doing 9 miles of walking/hiking. We had an amazing experience please bring sunblock, water and snacks. There is picnic tables and plenty of benches. Enjoy the spectacular views.
From all the national parks I've visited (Arizona, South California, Nevada) Arches is my favorite by far. The contrast of this red soil and the snow is amazing. I highly recommend visiting it as early as possible in the day to enjoy the fog and frozen vegetation which make you think you are on a different planet.
Been wanting to visit this place for the longest time. The drive over was mainly uninspiring, but once inside? Awe inspiring. And I'm not easily impressed.
Get in touch with mother nature. Amazing wish we had more time to spend here. Always turn and look behind you. Be safe and dress for the occasion. Follow the rules.
Place is extremely beautiful. Had a fantastic time with the family. My four year old daughter made the hike to delicate arch. It’s a nice sight. Family friendly and as clean as you can ask.
