Introducing Arches National Park

Giant sweeping arcs of sandstone frame snowy peaks and desert landscapes at Arches National Park, 5 miles north of Moab. Explore the highest density of rock arches anywhere on Earth: more than 2500 in a 116-sq-mile area. You'll lose all perspective on size at some, such as the thin and graceful Landscape Arch – among the largest in the world – which stretches more than 290ft across. The smallest is only 3ft across. An easy drive makes the spectacular arches accessible to all. Fiery Furnace is a not-to-be-missed area of the park, though a guided tour is required to reach it.
