Arches National Park Sights

Fiery Furnace Walk

Fodor's Review

Join a park ranger on a two- or three-hour walk through a labyrinth of rock fins and narrow sandstone canyons. You'll see arches that can't be viewed from the park road and spend time listening to the desert. You should be relatively fit and not afraid of heights if you plan to take this moderately strenuous walk. Wear sturdy hiking shoes, sunscreen, and a hat, and bring at least a liter of water. Walks into the Fiery Furnace are usually offered twice a day (hours vary)

and leave from Fiery Furnace Viewpoint. Tickets may be reserved up to six months in advance at, or purchased at the visitor center. Children ages 7–12 pay half price; children under 5 are not recommended. Book early as the program usually fills several days (or sometimes weeks) prior to each walk.
