Hikes in Arches National Park
Hikes in Arches National Park can be very rewarding. Most short and easy hikes are available from a Guided Van Tour, just a short distance from the parking lots of the most popular stops. Moderate hiking begins where the wide, groomed trails end and you begin scaling the rock surfaces, perhaps striking a pose under the arches and formations.
More intensely moderate and even hikes rated as "difficult" in Arches National Park may include the several miles to stand under Landscape Arch, or the world-famous Delicate Arch. A wide backcountry loop to thousands of more obscure arches can delight a hardy backpacker for days.
Hiking further off the typical guided tour stops will require you to drive your own vehicle into the park, which will require you to obtain a timed entry reservation some months in advance of your visit. Learn all about timed entry reservations here.
