Trip Report Arches National Park Trip Report

Jump to last reply

On our way to Bryce National Park in mid-September , we decided to stop into Arches National Park for a few hours. A hidden jewel in the middle of the desert! The park itself is not very big and the drive throughout the park can easily be made in a few hours. But I would strongly recommend getting out and exploring some of these incredible arches. We took the 3 mile hike up to Delicate Arch (and yes it is somewhat up), one of the most popular arches in the park. Be sure to take plenty of water as this is out in the open and does gain some elevation. You will be rewarded with an incredibly huge arch that you can walk right up to for some great photo opportunities. Be sure to stop at the side trail near the parking lot either on the way up or down to see some incredible petroglyphs. Then make the drive into the cool little town of Moab for lunch or dinner! For pictures of our visit to Arches, please check out our blogs on Delicate Arch, Park Avenue and Arches National Park:
