Over two thousand Natural Stone arches exist in the 76,000 plus acres of Arches National Park. One of the most famous icons of the park can be seen to your left. "Delicate Arch" can be seen from a distance by hiking 100 yards off a parking area or up close by hiking a moderate 3 mile trail to the base. FYI, dogs are not allowed outside of your car in the park so make sure you keep fido at home or make arrangements at a kennel in Moab.

Open 8am - 4:30pm, 365 days a year, except Dec 25th. Located 5 miles north of Moab on Hwy 191. Fees are $5 for individuals or $10 per vehicle. Group discounts are available. Devils Garden campground is located within the park and has 52 sites. Fee is $10 per night. Reservations are available. Of course, there are tons of camping and lodging options in Moab.

When planning a visit be sure to allocate most of a day or longer to fully enjoy the park. If you're on a time crunch you can do the scenic drive and a few short hikes to get a taste of Arches.
