world's largest concentration of natural stone arches
is found in Arches National Park. Over 2,000 of
these miracles of nature grace the 73,000-acre area. The
arches and numerous other extraordinary geologic features,
such as spires, pinnacles, pedestals and balanced rocks,
are highlighted in striking foreground and background
views created by contrasting colors, landforms and textures.
40-mile scenic drive curves from the visitor center to
the parking area at Devil's Garden. From this paved
road, most of the formations of the park are easily accessible,
including Balanced Rock, Skyline Arch and
Double Arch. Two trails, and a viewpoint accessible
by car, offer different views of Delicate Arch,
the park's most famous geologic feature. Road guides and
hiking brochures for the park are available at the visitor
center. Guided hikes and campfire programs are offered
daily. The entrance to the park is five miles north of
Moab via US-191. The visitor center is open year-round.
Water is available seasonally in the year-round campground.
