Arches National Park, Utah Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Arches National Park is a geological wonderland. Set in the high desert of southeastern Utah, it is home to the largest concentration of sandstone arches in the world, some 2,000 in all. That the simple actions of erosion over tens of thousands of years could produce what appear to be purposefully sculpted formations is endlessly fascinating to behold.

Delicate Arch is the most famous of the arches of the National Park, acting as an iconic image not only for the area, but for Utah in general. Another famous formation is the Double Arch, and is close to the also unforgettable North and South Windows. The Petrified Dunes are a series of once-sand dune frozen in stone, visible from the park road. These are just a small handful of the park's ancient and breathtaking sights, almost all of which are accessible by hiking trails.

Arches National Park is located 32 miles south of I-70 on Hwy. 191 near Moab and Canyonlands National Park. In nearby Moab, you will find numerous dining and lodging options, plenty of outfitters eager to supply equipment, guides and information and all other services a traveler might normally need.
