Arches Scenic Drive
Enjoy unforgettable views of the park on the 19-mile drive along Highway 191. It takes half an hour to complete the drive, but we recommend exploring for at least four hours.
The top viewpoints include Courthouse Towers and Balanced Rock, with the road ending at Devils Garden. And you can enjoy all the views again as you drive back to the park entrance.
For breathtaking views of sheer canyon walls that look similar to an alligator’s tail, go to Park Avenues Viewpoint. It’s a short walk from the parking area, and once you reach the viewpoint, you can admire the surreal terracotta-colored landscape.
There’s a short two-mile out-and-back trail that meanders through the canyons, and you can get up close to iconic landmarks like Sausage Rock (what a name!). At the end of the route, you’ll reach the Courthouse towers viewpoint.
Top Tip: For something other than arches, hike the 0.8-mile Courthouse Wash Panel Trail. You’ll be able to see 4,000-year-old pictographs.
La Sal Mountains Viewpoint
No more than a 5-minute drive from Park Avenue is the La Sal Mountains Viewpoint. Although no arches are in sight, you’ll have mesmerizing views of the towering canyon walls and La Sal Mountains dominating the background.
We recommend you visit this viewpoint when entering and leaving the park. This way, you can capture breathtaking photos with morning and afternoon lighting.
Windows Viewpoint Trail
Take a short 45-minute hike (0.7 miles) to the unusual Windows arches. The North Window Arch and South Window Arch create something that – from the viewpoint – looks a lot like E.T.
The arches form eyes with the towering rock in between making a nose. And that’s not all, because if you carry along the Spur Trail, you’ll reach the giant Turret Arch.
Delicate Arch Hike
One of the most iconic things to do in the park is the 2-hour hike (3 miles) to Delicate Arch. During this out-and-back trek, there’s an elevation gain of 480 feet, so it’s a relatively moderate hike.
You can admire breathtaking views of the valley below – especially on a short section with a sheer drop to your right. Although this may be daunting, it’s well worth the effort, as the Delicate Arch viewpoint is something you’ll never forget.
Top Tip: Visit at sunrise or sunset to snap a majestic photo of Turret Arch through North Window Arch.
Discover the reddish tint that dominates this archless region of the park.
You can view Fiery Furnace at the viewpoint, but we suggest joining a challenging but epic 2-mile ranger-led hike, where you’ll meander between fin-like canyon walls.
Devils Garden and Landscape Arch
In Devils Garden, you can join either the Landscape Arch trail (1.6 miles) or the longer Double O Arch trail (4.3 miles). No matter which track you choose, you’ll see mesmerizing landmarks such as Pine Tree Arch, Tunnel Arch, and Najavo Arch.
But, we’ll be honest, the star of the show is Landscape Arch. It’s 306 feet long, dominating Devils Garden, and is the longest natural arch in the world.
