Arches National Park 4x4 Adventure from Moab

540 reviews
Avoid the crowds at Arches National Park with this 4x4 adventure, with multiple departure times, that takes you off road to explore the rocky terrain of the park from areas where only rugged vehicles can go. Not only can you see fossilized dinosaur tracks, Tower Arch, and Marching Men on your guided tour, but you’ll have access to ice water and lemonade to keep you cool even in the heat.
US$122.53 per adult

We arrived at arches National Park just before sunrise to avoid the traffic that shows up by 9 o'clock. The park is usually closed by 10:00 a.m. because of excessive traffic. We happened to be at balanced rock at sunrise which was a great experience since the Sun rises behind it. It has a nice parking lot and even if you don't walk the trail you can easily see the formation from the parking lot.

This is one of the most notable attractions at Arches National Park. Less then 10 miles (16 km) into the park on the scenic drive it is easy to spot. It is a short distance from the parking lot and a very easy walk. The trail which loops around the rock totals less than half a mile (.8 km) and provides a well rounded view of the rock. The is an easy, quick and amusing stop.

One of my favorite spots in the park. Easy access right up to the base and the surrounding structure. Or you can view it from the parking lot area if you are not very mobile. Watch Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade before venturing into the park and this location. It will enhance your appreciation of the site :-). My youngest child exclaimed that it was a big thumb and showed us how it looked to her by sticking up her thumb the first time she saw it at about 5 years old...

It's an easy walk around this rock and fun to see how it sits up there. Also is a good lesson on the erosion of these many rock formations.

Easy hike for all, basically a flat short loop. Nice picture op. Parking was an issue, but circled back a 2nd time. In general, if you aren't in the park by about 10 AM, you might be sitting in line to get in.
