Arches National Park Information
Arches National Park is one of Utah’s unique treasures protected by the National Park Service. Caused by a massive uplift of an underground salt bed, countless sandstone fins were left standing where wind, water, and ice all worked together to begin carving out eroded channels that created the arches. The most well-known arch is Delicate Arch, a massive natural arch that sits atop a sandstone bluff over a massive wash. Hordes of people hike the three-mile trail daily to witness its majestic nature. Other popular spots in the park include the Devil’s Garden Trail, where visitors can hike to Navajo Arch, Partition Arch, Double O Arch, and many others. Another is the Cove of Caves area where people can hike to Double Arch, the North and South Windows, Turret Arch, and of course, many more amazing features throughout. Arches is also the start of the relatively new Hayduke Trail, a long-distance hiking trail that ultimately ends in Zion National Park, showing off some of southern Utah’s most remote and incredible scenery.
