  • Arches National park is 5-miles from Moab. When you enter Arches from Hwy. 191, the Courthouse Towers District is the first section of the park that you will see. It includes the Park Avenue Viewpoint and trail head. That's a two-mile RT trail into the canyon with an elevation gain of 320 feet. It should take less than one hour. Continuing on, there is the Courthouse, the La Sal Viewpoint Overlook, the Three Gossips, the Organ, the Tower of Babel, and the Great Wall. The Great Wall runs along near Park Avenue. The other formations mentioned will have their own reviews. Be advised that the summer months are April through September and the park areas can be very warm and dry. There is not much shade either. Therefore, good walking shoes, protective shade gear for eyes, heads, and skin, (even an umbrella) sunscreen, and plenty of water are necessary. The restrooms for this area are in the Visitor Center. From the Visitor Center, the park road climbs slowly uphill. When you enter the park you will be given a park map. This will show you the trail heads, has distances marked, and will tell you where there are drinking water stations and restroom facilities.
  • Beautiful, one of the first views you will see in the park.
