Description: Arches Natural Park is located in south east Utah, accessed off of Highway 191 just north of Moab, Utah. All main roads in the park are paved.
If you intend to visit the Fiery Furnace Area, stop at the visitor center and get the extra permit for this area.
The main entrance road will climb up a major hill as it proceeds north. The Park Avenue Trail is accessible from either the north or south end and is the first major trail you will encounter.
Further north near the center of the park, you will find an intersection right near the Balanced Rock Parking Area. A spur road proceeding East will take you to the Windows and Double Arch. An unpaved road heading west will take you towards Eye of the Whale Arch.
Further north the main road splits into two. The northwest road takes you past the Fiery Furnace Area, towards the Broken Arch Loop area and the park campground, and to the Devil's Garden Loop. The northeast road takes you to to the trailhead for the famed Delicate Arch, or if you continue further, the Delicate Arch Vista.
The nearest gas station is in Moab.
