Create an itinerary including Arches National Park
Explore the dramatic landscape of Arches National Park, known for the highest density of natural arches in the world. Stop at the visitor center to learn more about the origin of these colorful geological formations and to replenish your water supplies. The red-rock wonderland of nearly 2,000 stone arches, soaring pinnacles, and massive balanced rocks is especially inspiring at dawn and dusk. Some locations within the park cannot be visited without a ranger, so reserve your spot on the tour on time. Most tourists limit their visit to just driving through the park, but the more adventurous can also choose to hike, cycle, backpack, or camp.

  • Visited on a clear cold blue sky day in late December and enjoyed every minute of it. Crowds were down off-season but it was still pretty busy. (can't imagine what it's like in summer peak season...

  • Absolutely gorgeous landscape. There are tons of hikes to do, from super easy, to challenging. It’s a landscape photographer’s dream. I’d recommend going during the month of February, as it’s better hiking temps and way less crowded. I was able to get pics of every arch WITHOUT people in them! I’d absolutely recommend you go here if you’re into great hiking and scenery!
  • Breathtaking place. Amazing to visit with a family, solo trip, or as a couple. Bring plenty of water, sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat. It gets very hot very quickly here. We visited in March 2022, before the time entry was implemented, but during spring break and yes it was very busy here, especially on the weekends. If I'd visit again would pick a different week, away from holidays, weekend, and target either spring or fall, it seems gets little too hot during summer time here. Overall loved it experience. Kids were so excited about all the trails. Most of the attractions are a very short hike. Some are little more advanced. I would recommend at least a week here. Alternating Canyonlands and Arches is best to give some rest.
