Moab Utah » Arches National Park Scenic Drive

Driving through Arches National Park can be a wonderful way to see many spectacular sights from your vehicle and on short walks just off the main road. The visitor center and entrance to Arches National Park are located 5 miles north of Moab along U.S. Highway 191. Arches National Park, known for its dramatic rock formations, includes massive sandstone buttes and walls, petrified dunes, meandering canyons, balanced rocks, and soaring arches. The scenic park highway is 18 miles long. Entrance fees are charged.

Delicate Arch Overlook From the visitor center, the highway climbs several switchbacks while presenting views of Moab Canyon and adjacent cliffs. Major points of interest along the first half of the road include Park Avenue and Balanced Rock. From Balanced Rock, a paved road leads to the Windows Section of the Park. This area features the Cove of Caves, Parade of Elephants, Turret Arch, the North and South Window Arches, and the fabulous Double Arch. While the arches are visible from the road, they are best viewed from the short walking trails leadIng from the parking areas.
Skyline Arch Beyond Balanced Rock, the main park road continues to the road leading to the Delicate Arch trailhead and historic Wolfe Ranch. From the Delicate Arch turnoff, the Park road travels past Fiery Furnace and Skyline Arch to end at the Devils Garden trailhead. Landscape Arch, an incredibly long and slender span, is an easy 1 mile stroll from the trailhead. Visitors may obtain a detailed Arches National Park auto tour brochure at the visitor center. The Devils Garden Campground and picnic area are located near the end of the main Park road. Evening campfire programs are presented at the campground several times per week in season. Camping fees are charged.

Note: If you're interested in a guided tour through Arches National Park combined with a wonderful hike in the Fiery Furnace (accessed only by permit and with an experienced guide), we highly recommend the Arches Hike & Scenic Tour.
