Exactly what you expect. Beautiful views! Busy park. Lots of traffic and people which means you have to wait for parking to visit some areas in the park. Try to go mid week early or late afternoon to avoid the rush.

My husband, our 17 year old grandson & I had only one day (sigh!) to visit both Arches & Canyonlands National Parks so we signed up with Viator Tours for a day long tour of both parks with lunch included. The Best of Moab in A Day Jeep tour was what we chose - it turned out to be a perfect pick for our day! Paulina was our driver & guide who, from start to finish, was delightful, very informative & ever so accommodating to our needs. I have some physical limitations & needed help into the Jeep - Paulina had a stepping stool she brought out for me at all of the stops we made. When I was unable to walk to many of the Arches, Paulina found a shorter - & truly awesome - access walk for us all to take. She set up a lovely Al fresco lunch of cheeses, meats, condiments, spreads, olives, fruit, bread for sandwiches & for dipping.

Paulina picked us up right on time at our hotel, toured us all around the Arches NP, pointing out the incredible geological aspects of everything that we were seeing, along with the amazing & varied ecosystem of the area. Then, after lunch, she drove us to the Island in the Sky District of the Canyonlands NP where she continued to teach us about the complex geological & natural wonders of both parks. She made our day truly fun, memorable & stress free!

Visitors centre open from 9 AM to 4 PM but the park is open 24 hours which can make for great night shots. We arrived around 9 PM just to make some photos of the gorgeous starry sky.

The next day we went in again to actually hike and spent the whole day there easily! Hiked for approximately 4 hours and still haven't seen the whole park.
It's a huge, gorgeous, well maintained park. I do recommend to arrive very early around 6 AM when almost no one is there and it's nice and a bit cold outside to start the longest hike, because when we came back from that hike 2.5 hours later it was really busy and the parking lot was crammed.
Well worth the USD25, - per vehicle(April 2018) which can be paid for in a 'mailbox' outside of the opening times of the NP.

Hard to describe. Bring water container. Walk slow and steady. Hikes can be challenging due to the heat and lack of water. Don’t be a hero. Drink twice as much water as you think you need.

Delicate Arch & Double 'O' Arch are the must see ones, but the hikes are a bit strenuous and treacherous at places - be careful with young kids. Plan for at least 2 days to see all the main arches. Longer stays can be planned based on the appetite to do more activities. Balanced Rock, Double Arch, Landscape Arch, Windows and Sand Dune Arch are other must-see arches. Great for all family and kids.
