Sweeping vistas, beautiful colors, fascinating rock formations. There is something here for everyone. Many places to hike, climb and/or explore. A lot of turnouts to enjoy the scenery and take pictures. There are even a few wheelchair accessible trails. Even the visitor center is nice.

The best advice we got from a local was to enter the park early, and avoid lines at the gate and find easier parking within. It gets hots at Arches, so early arrival also means you're out and about before the heat of the day. We had a wonderful hike to Delicate Arch and were delighted we went early. As we left the park at 11:30am, there were two long lines of vehicles waiting to enter.

Exactly what you expect. Beautiful views! Busy park. Lots of traffic and people which means you have to wait for parking to visit some areas in the park. Try to go mid week early or late afternoon to avoid the rush.

My husband, our 17 year old grandson & I had only one day (sigh!) to visit both Arches & Canyonlands National Parks so we signed up with Viator Tours for a day long tour of both parks with lunch included. The Best of Moab in A Day Jeep tour was what we chose - it turned out to be a perfect pick for our day! Paulina was our driver & guide who, from start to finish, was delightful, very informative & ever so accommodating to our needs. I have some physical limitations & needed help into the Jeep - Paulina had a stepping stool she brought out for me at all of the stops we made. When I was unable to walk to many of the Arches, Paulina found a shorter - & truly awesome - access walk for us all to take. She set up a lovely Al fresco lunch of cheeses, meats, condiments, spreads, olives, fruit, bread for sandwiches & for dipping.

Paulina picked us up right on time at our hotel, toured us all around the Arches NP, pointing out the incredible geological aspects of everything that we were seeing, along with the amazing & varied ecosystem of the area. Then, after lunch, she drove us to the Island in the Sky District of the Canyonlands NP where she continued to teach us about the complex geological & natural wonders of both parks. She made our day truly fun, memorable & stress free!

Visitors centre open from 9 AM to 4 PM but the park is open 24 hours which can make for great night shots. We arrived around 9 PM just to make some photos of the gorgeous starry sky.

The next day we went in again to actually hike and spent the whole day there easily! Hiked for approximately 4 hours and still haven't seen the whole park.
It's a huge, gorgeous, well maintained park. I do recommend to arrive very early around 6 AM when almost no one is there and it's nice and a bit cold outside to start the longest hike, because when we came back from that hike 2.5 hours later it was really busy and the parking lot was crammed.
Well worth the USD25, - per vehicle(April 2018) which can be paid for in a 'mailbox' outside of the opening times of the NP.
