1The Delicate Arch


Are you headed to Arches National Park Utah? Are you interested in info on the best things to do there? Then read on, as we present 11 amazing things to do in Arches National Park.

1. The Delicate Arch


Delicate Arch is one of the most famous arches in the world (that isn’t golden). It certainly is the most popular arch when it comes to hiking destinations in this park. This is a three-mile return hike.

The hike is difficult enough to require at least two and a half hours. Visit Wolfe Ranch at the start of the hike. You can also stop to rest at the drop off prior to reaching Delicate Arch.

If you visit in April you will also be able to take in a contrasting view of the Utah desert and the snow-capped majestic La Sal Mountains in the background. Sunset and sunrise are the best time of the day to see it. Additionally, you reportedly have a better chance of avoiding crowds at sunrise.

  1. Great photos. Arches for me is up there with Yosemite and Grand Canyon NP. There are so many cool rock formations. and places to explore. Also the surrounding area has a lot to see and do with Moab, Dead Horse State park, and Canyonlands.

  2. Hello!
    Yes, I agree! I have been to those places more than once. In fact, if you’re a regular reader I’ve written about hiking the entire grand Canyon more than once with my father and a small, select group of Scouts. I doubt I could do it today and am glad I was a teenager when i did it lol Thanks for your comment and for reading too!

  3. I hiking Havasupai the Grand Canyon 25 years ago why am at Moony Falls. It was a Blast! Remembering when, I also hiked Death Valley for 2 weeks about and walked through Dead Horse Canyon and Catalina Island. God had made some amazing places for us to enjoy.

  4. Hi!
    Yes, I did much of my hiking when I was younger and did not totally appreciate what I saw but now I look back and realize each trail we complete is a trail that so many others will never even see.
    Thanks for the comment!

  5. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.

  6. Hi!
    I agree. I think the owners have set up this site very nicely. They experiment with other looks from time to time but I agree. I think it has a great look to it.

  7. Good blog! I truly love how it is easy on my eyes and the data are well written. I am wondering how I could be notified when a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your RSS feed which must do the trick! Have a great day!
