15 Amazing Arches National Park Hikes You Cannot Miss

Anyone can drive through and view all of the canyons, arches, and mountains from their car window, but to really immerse yourself you’ll want to check out the best hikes in Arches National Park.

This national park is home to over 2,000 arches, most of which have their very own hiking trail.

If you have a short window of time in which to explore the park, choosing just a couple of these trails is easier said than done.


This trail is one of the best Arches National Park hikes and leads to the famous Delicate Arch. Yep, the arch that appears on every Utah license plate!

Located in the Devils Garden, which is home to a handful of the area’s most iconic arches and landforms, this trail puts all the best of the national park’s natural beauty on full display.

Landscape Arch Trail

If you consider the hike to the Landscape Arch to be a bit too easy for your liking, why not continue onto the Devils Garden main trail to view the second largest arch in the park: the Double O Arch.

Primitive Trail

This trail is meant more for experienced hikers and a little more off the beaten path, which means fewer tourists.

Anyone can visit the Balanced Rock viewpoint, but if you really want to take in the beauty of these rock formations, you’ll have to hit the trail.
