People come from all over the world, and speak many languages to see the Tower of Babel. And this tower, truly almost reaches heaven. It is very impressive. Located on the Arches Park Road about 5 miles from the Entrance and just after Park Avenue, there is a parking area with interpretive signs that provides a good viewpoint. This is... More

There're not a lot of specifics I can offer here, other than the Arches is packed with amazing bit of scenery like Babel, courtesy of millions of years of nature. See it!

Tower of Babel is a large rock formation located along Arches Scenic drive about 4.5 miles from the park entrance. It's plainly visible from a car, but there is a parking area nearby with educational signage if you want a better look. Other interesting formations such as Courthouse Towers, Sheep Rock and Three Gossips are also visible at this location.... More

Really easy to see from the road and worth getting out of the car to marvel at. The different layers of rock are really clear and it's just fabulous to marvel at the way erosion has shaped this place.

Think of a tower reaching almost to the sky when looking at this formation. The vertical, pillar-like striations make this look like columns on some ancient Greek temple (or biblical, in this case). It lies roughly between the 3 gossips formation and Courthouse formation. It is among the first stops from the visitor center. On a stormy day, the angry... More

This formation is easily seen along with the Three a Gossips and the Courthouse. There is a viewing area to see them. Take time to stop!

This monument is visible upon first entry to the Arches National Park. Across from it is the Three Gossips and adjacent in foreground is Courthouse. Road descends so you are among the giant rock formations at the base looking up and then on to the Windows, Landscapes and other sections of this awesome park. Great roads, easy access for vistas...

The arches park is very cool. You will need at least a day. For hiking get there at sunrise and with lots of water. We started withthe longest hike that was farthest from the entrance and worked our way out. This beat the heat and the crowds.

One of many along the road in Arches National Park. Driving gives you one perspective, but if you have time - hike next to these giants.
