Hiking Arches or Canyonlands National Park in fall?

Jump to last reply

I am a 20 year old Australian exchange student studying for a semester at the University of Utah. The university offers Parks, Recreational and Tourism subjects which consist of 3 days of hiking whilst examining the natural history of the park, contemporary resource management challenges and environmental ethics.

I have a choice of 2 subjects which involve hiking either Arches or Canyonlands National Park. Arches hike starts on 7th November and Canyonlands on 24th October. I realise by then that the nights could be starting to get cold (we will be camping.)

I will be visiting the parks late next week, but by then I need to have enrolled in my courses. Which park do others consider to be the best for such a course of study? All views appreciated.
