About This Deal

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Arches Visitor Center, Entrance Station, Park Headquarters, Arches National Park, UT 84532

Our adventure into the astounding Arches begins just before the park's entrance and visitor center. We're about to see stunning natural monuments, unlikely rock formations, and alien, ancient landscapes.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: moab fault overlook, Arches National Park, Moab, UT 84532, USA

Moab’s Fault is a six million-year-old crack in the earth’s crust. As we continue driving, we'll see this fault and learn about the geologic pressures that have formed the landscape of Arches.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: La Sal Mountains Viewpoint, Moab, UT 84532, USA

The La Sal Mountains are the second-highest mountain range in Utah. Their highest peak, which you can see toward the center of the range, is almost 13,000 feet tall. We'll pause our drive through Arches to admire the mountains and learn about the Spanish settlers who pushed out the Ute and Paiute tribes.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Three Gossips, Utah 84532, USA

As we continue driving through Arches, we'll pass the iconic Three Gossips formation.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Courthouse Towers Viewpoint, Arches Entrance Road, Moab, UT 84532, USA

This brings us to another vista point, where we'll see the Organ, Courthouse, Sheep Rock, and more.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Petrified Dunes Viewpoint, Arches Entrance Rd, Moab, UT 84532, USA

We'll also pass the Petrified Dunes and Great Wall. As we drive, we'll learn more about the Ute and Paiute mythologies of this harsh and alien landscape.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: The Windows Road, The Windows Rd, Utah 84532, USA

This brings us to another popular Arches spot: the Windows! These striking examples of erosion are a must-see while in Arches.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Cove of Caves, Utah 84532, USA

Look down the trail and you’ll see one of the park’s most striking sights. That collection of arches and almost-arches is the Cove of Caves.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Panorama Point, Utah 84532, USA

We'll pass Panorama Point — keep this in mind if you plan to return at dark for stargazing. Since there’s very little light pollution obscuring the night sky here, you’ll see an astonishing number of stars once the sun sets. Depending on the time of year, you may even get to see the entire Milky Way! As we continue our drive, we'll learn about how to stargaze like the Paiute.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Delicate Arch, Near Moab, Arches National Park, UT 84532

Now we're at THE most famous spot in Arches: Delicate Arch. A quick hike brings us right up to this gorgeous - and improbable - formation.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Salt Valley Road, Arches National Park, UT 84532

This is one of the park’s quieter attractions. Like Cache Valley, Salt Valley was formed by the collapse of many sandstone domes. The broken pieces of rock littering the ground are leftovers from that collapse.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Fiery Furnace, Near Moab, Arches National Park, UT 84532

Our drive continues past the Fiery Furnace: a network of narrow canyons & passages amid towering red cliffs at Arches National Park.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Sand Dune Arch, Arches National Park, UT

As we drive, exploring more arches, we'll learn more about the Paiute myths behind them, the Spanish and Mormon settlers who tried to survive in this land, and the people who were able to preserve this stunning landscape as a national park.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Devils Garden Trailhead, Devils Gdn Trailhead, Utah, USA

Our drive through Arches ends at the Devil's Garden, where a final hiking trail leads to Landscape Arch and beyond. Our tour through the mythology and geology of this epic land is now over.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Monitor and Merriamac Rock Formations, Canyonlands National Park, UT 84532

Look to the right. All you can see at the moment are tall rock walls. That’s because we’re near the floor of Sevenmile Canyon. As we continue to drive, we’ll emerge from the canyon and be able to see two very distinct features in the distance to the right -- the Merrimac and the Monitor.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Big Mesa Viewpoint, Utah, USA

Coming up on your right is Big Mesa Viewpoint. Pause for a quick look at some stunning scenery. The enormous mesa looks like it was plonked down here by accident, and then forgotten.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: White Rim Road, White Rim Rd, Utah 84532, USA

In such a beautiful landscape, you can’t escape the lure of exploring off the beaten path. But watch out! If you do go off the path, you might be trampling on soil that’s alive. You might think I’m joking, but throughout Canyonlands, Arches, and Moab is something called a biological soil crust.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Dead Horse Point State Park, Sr 313, Moab, UT 84532

Dead Horse Point — it’s a creepy name, isn’t it? According to local legend, wild mustangs used to be corralled here to be broken in the early 1800s. Once all the desirable horses had been broken and claimed by the cowboys, the undesirables were left to go free.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Island In The Sky Visitor Center, Canyonlands National Park, UT

Stop by the Visitor Center coming up ahead. It’s a great place to grab supplies, use the bathroom, and fill up your water bottles. As you’ve already seen, this park doesn’t have much infrastructure, and being dehydrated out here is no joke.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Shafer Canyon Overlook, Canyonlands National Park, UT

This overlook offers views from three sides. It may be a bit daunting if you're afraid of heights since there’s nothing between you and the Canyon. However, the incredible view is worth it.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Lathrop Canyon, Canyonlands National Park, UT

A lot of natural landmarks and trails in Canyonlands are named by or after cowboys and ranchers. In fact, Ned Chaffin’s father and one of his brothers had a spring named after them.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Mesa Arch, Canyonlands National Park, UT

"Ahead, pull over for Mesa Arch. This is a must-do at Canyonlands.

Once you’ve parked, walk along the short trail to the arch.

As you walk, notice the juniper and pinyon trees around you. These are popular in Canyonlands so keep an eye out for them elsewhere too."

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Green River Overlook, Canyonlands National Park, UT 84532

The Green River Overlook offers some of the most unique views of Canyonland’s Island in the Sky District. You’re able to see the Green River continuing its work on the canyon walls. The river is the largest stream in Utah at 730 miles. The name probably comes from the green soapstone that can be found along its banks.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Aztec Butte Trail, Island in the Sky, Canyonlands National Park, UT

What makes this trail special? Simple: the granaries left here by Native peoples. They’re visible from the base of the last hill if you just keep your eyes open. These granaries are hundreds of years old, so be careful when approaching.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Upheaval Dome, Canyonlands National Park, UT 84532

Remember how the park’s rocks have been formed in layers? In most of the park, these layers haven’t been disrupted since their formation. What you see is what was deposited, all those hundreds of millions of years ago.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Candlestick Tower Overlook, Canyonlands National Park, UT

In the distance, do you see three giant candles sticking out of the landscape? That’s Candlestick Tower! Doesn’t this sandstone formation look like a layered birthday cake, topped with candles? * The bottom layer is white, the middle a reddish-brown, and the top is red.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Murphy Point Trail, Grand View Point Road, Canyonlands National Park, UT

The trail that leads to Murphy Point Overlook is quite easy, adding up to 3.5 miles roundtrip. While the hike itself doesn’t offer much in the way of scenery, the overlook provides a stunning view of Stillwater Canyon and the Green River.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Buck Canyon Overlook, Grand View Point Road, Canyonlands National Park, UT

Here you’ll see spectacular views of Buck Canyon and the La Sal mountains. The short trail is paved, making it one of the most accessible places in the park. There’s also a rail that stands between you and the canyon, so if you are scared of heights, this overlook is perfect for you.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: White Rim Overlook Trail, Canyonlands National Park, UT

This is a great place to rest and enjoy a quick meal! There are only eight tables, so be sure to claim one if there are any available.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Orange Cliffs Overlook, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, Canyonlands National Park, UT 84532
