    This ballad can be done without a guide, and anyway, you will soon realize that this cannot be done otherwise. Reservation at the Center Arches National Park. Count $ 16 for more than 12 years. A walk in the canyon of 2 h 30 super easy. The Ranger Guide was very friendly, passionate and very cool. We learned a lot of things about the formation of the arches, Canyon, wildlife. I was a bit reluctant (our 2 girls 12 and 15 years too!) but really it was great. A group of 15 people (including guide) so not the crowd and it's perfect for us. We were only in the middle or to the Fund of this canyon. We found ourselves in unique and magical places. To do!

    We did the ranger-led hike, and were very glad we did. I usually enjoy roaming about at my own pace, but after taking this hike, I enjoyed it much more than I would have alone. There were no worries a...  more »

    We can do a self-guided tour but we booked for the ranger lead tour. Their are only a limited number of spots for both so do book early. I was glad we had the ranger lead as Travis, our ranger, was ex...  more »

    Fantastic adventure! My wife and I took four of our children, ages 7,10,13 and 17, and everyone had a great time. We upgraded to the AllTrails Pro app ($30/yr) and used the default map on my iPhone 7 Plus and it worked like a charm, even in Airplane Mode. We followed the standard trails to see Surprise and Skull Arch, plus several exploratory detours of our own that were simply delightful. Total trip time for our little band was 3.75 hours. Take plenty of water and snacks. Do NOT enter without a guide or a really good app.

    I am a huge fan of adventure. Going somewhere that is not the standard path. The Fiery Furnace is in a way that opportunity. If you're coming to the area, plan ahead and get in there. Things you should know: You have to get a permit to enter the furnace. You have an option of going alone, though this is unadvised for most. Or to go with a Park Ranger. You MUST reserve your place with a Ranger early as they only do so many each day. It can be very dangerous to go alone as you will have no reception and no GPS inside. Come prepared: Make sure you have a good amount of water (especially in the summer months), proper attire, flash light, and proper footwear. There is not a manicured path. You'll be having to get creative in some areas to get around. Go early! If you're starting in late you might find you lose the light before you get out. That said, it is well worth it. Get in and have a good time. Just plan ahead and be safe.

    This is by far the best part of Arches. A maze with no real established trail. We explored for 5 hours and didn't see another person the entire time!

    Take the guided tour with a ranger. Very easy to get lost in here if you don't know where you're going.

    Named for the warm glow seen on the rocks late afternoon. Not the best place but definitely worth to see.

Where to stay in Arches National Park

Arches National Park provides camping at the Devils Garden Campground, but most visitors opt to stay in the town of Moab south of the park. You'll find every type of accommodation here, including economy motels, small inns with a rustic Southwest vibe, bed and breakfasts, lodges, and campgrounds. Moab's economy largely revolves around park visitors, so you'll find plenty of restaurants, supermarkets, and various services here. A few publicly operated campgrounds line Route 128 on the park's eastern edge, and a few more accommodations sit on Route 191 off the park's western border.
