Arches National Park

Thousands of enormous natural sandstone arches dominate this aptly named National Park, making it home to the highest density of natural arches on earth. Each arch is like its own piece of art in Mother Earth’s gallery. Among her most popular works are Balanced Rock, Courthouse Towers, Delicate Arch, and Devils Garden.

These unique rock formations may entice visitors to climb them, but don’t! It’s illegal to climb any arch in the park with an opening larger than 3 feet. Instead, take a tour by car, hike or bike a trail, go camping, or request a permit for backpacking, canyoneering, or rock climbing.
