Arches National Park

A red rock wonder, Arches National Park is sure to fill you with shock and awe. This Utah national park contains the world's largest concentration of natural arches - sublime spans of stone that seem to defy gravity - defy nature. Some are delicate ribbons curving skyward and then twisting back to the earth. Others are openings chiseled into massive mountains of otherwise solid rock.

Arches aren't the only attractions in Arches National Park. This is a playground of stone with massive balanced rocks, sandstone fins, spires, Marching Men and other geological wonders.

A paved road winds through the national park, allowing easy access to some of the most impressive sites. Hiking trails - some easy, some challenging - penetrate more remote areas.

A visitor center is located near the park entrance. The nearby town of Moab provides lodging, restaurants, outfitters for optional trips and a full range of other services. Other parks to visit while in the Moab area are Canyonlands National Park and Dead Horse Point State Park - just 25 miles north of Arches National Park, and easily accessible.
