Arches National Park

Arches National Park is one of Utah’s most sought-after national parks largely due to its more than 2,000 natural arches packed into a 76,000+ acre park. Classic hikes are found throughout the park, including two different hikes to the iconic Delicate Arch. Many of the other popular hikes include Park Avenue, the Windows, and the Devil’s Garden, home to the popular Landscape Arch and Double O Arch. While the best features are found along hiking trails, many signature features can also be found along the main roads, including Balanced Rock, the Organ, and more, allowing for something for everyone to see. While it’s one of the smaller western national parks in the National Park Service, it’s definitely one of the most popular with outdoor enthusiasts and for good reason. Its fantastic hiking and unusual scenery keep people coming back over and over again.
