A Red Rock Wonderland
Mother Nature kept reaching for red when she painted Arches National Park's 2,000 sandstone arches, resulting in one of the country's more distinctly shaped and colored landscapes. While the arches give the park its name, other prominent features such as towering monoliths, spires, giant balanced rocks, and sandstone fins cover this swath of eastern Utah desert. Because rock does not hold footprints, exploring the park can give the sense that you're crossing virgin territory. At 30,901 hectares (76,359 acres), Arches is a relatively small national park. The park's numerous short hiking trails let you explore its attractions for yourself. Use our custom trip planner: Arches National Park and all its delights await.
