When you think of the dynamic terrain of Southern Utah, chances are high that the first image that comes to your mind is the iconic Delicate Arch in Arches National Park. And while this landmark is certainly worth visiting, the park is full of other amazing formations you shouldn’t pass by during your visit! Here are just a few of our favorites.
With a width of 306 feet, Landscape Arch is the longest natural arch in the United States, and the 5th longest in the entire world! And with its skinniest point measuring only six feet across, you’d be forgiven for thinking this one should be called Delicate Arch.
Located in the aptly named Fiery Furnace area of the park, this arch seems just as eager to stare back at the viewer! But remember, it’s not called the Fiery Furnace for no reason—be prepared for a strenuous hike to see this arch, and consider taking one of the park’s guided tours.
It can be hard to appreciate the grand scale of these arches through just a simple photo, or how they fit into the wider landscape of the park. Skyline Arch is a great place to discover just how amazingly big these formations are, and the structure is still stable enough that you can hike right underneath it!
If you’ve dismissed Eastern Utah in the past, we hope we’ve convinced you to give it another shot. If you’re planning on visiting Arches National Park, we can drop you off right in Moab, where you can stock up on supplies before entering the park. Enjoy your trip!
