Arches National Park

If the park is not full, here are the hikes that I recommend!

Arches National Park
@skylar
Go early to avoid the big crowd! It's risky to get there after 9am on the weekend; they may not allow more cars.

Delicate Arch

This a 3.2 mile moderate rated trail on the All Trails application. You cannot go to Arches without seeing this beauty!

Delicate Arch Trailhead
@skylar
I recommend doing this trail bright and early OR for the sunset! Both work! But this system works best to avoid the crowds and to find parking!

Devils Garden

This is a 7.2 mile hard rated trail on the All Trails application. This trail kicked my behind. I was sweating at the end of it for sure. I got to see various arches, each so unique in its own way.

Devils Garden Primitive Loop
@skylar
If you want to do one trail and see many arches, this is the trail to do it! It is challenging, however.

Windows Loop and Turret Arch Trail

This is a 1.2 mile easy rated trail on All Trails. If you want to add another hike in the park just because, then this is it! By the end of the day, I was quite tired so this is another one to add to make me feel like I saw more than 2 trails in the park!

Turret Arch

Attached is the trail link!

Balanced Rock

This trail is very short. It's more of an easy view point to quickly see. Who knew rock formations are so cool?!

@skylar
Attached is the trail link! It's only 0.3 miles!

If the park is full, here is where to go next!

Dead Horse Point State Park

This is the perfect de-tour! I got to see what the Moab has to offer with the water and rock formations. You should read up on the legend of this place. Spooky spooky.

Beautiful views and great drive to get a glimpse of the Moab!

Explore the Moab

This town is quite cute! A lot of restaurants to try!

Moab Food Truck Park
@skylar
If you cannot decide what to eat, why not get a little bit of everything? Share plates with friends from different trucks. It all works out in the end!

Til' next time Arches!

I have been here 4 times in total, and there's always something new to appreciate. Cheers to living!
