Autumn In Arches National Park

1826611 Delicate Arch Arches National Park
Now that Fall is nearly upon us (Just one day left folks!), it’s time for those of us who live in the warmer states to start thinking about heading back outside on a more regular basis. If you’re looking for a little outdoor adventure as Autumn descends upon us, take a little advice from National Parks Traveler and head to Arches and Canyonlands National Parks for a less crowded and more temperate experiencing.

Their article has some great little tips about enjoying each park. Like getting out of your car in Arches, and actually out on a trail to truly enjoy the scenery. They offer several suggestions on the best hikes to take to experiencing some of the stunning scenery and vast vistas. And if Arches isn’t enough for you, plan on heading to Canyonlands while you’re in the neighborhood as well, as there is plenty to see and do in that park too, and even though the two area are quite close geographically, they are both unique enough to make it worth your while.

This article covers some of the best sites in both parks and should make you want to dig out those hiking boots, dust of the trekking poles, and don the backpack for a little adventure of your own. Go on! You know you want to!

  1. Hmmmm, having made dozens of trips to Southeastern Utah over the past 14 years, I have to say that it really is worth the effort to get there. However, it still seems less crowded in the Spring when I’ve taken the majority of my trips out there. Having visited Canyonlands last weekend, I found it a bit crowded (all campgrounds in-Park were full) with mostly European visitors. Since I was introducing the Park to two European friends, I discovered that this is a popular holiday time of year for our cousins across the pond.

    But even crowded, the place is worth visiting and the entrance fees (at least to my favorite park, Canyonlands) is still only $10/7days.

    Here are some pictures if anyone is interested in going out there:



  2. I suppose technically it’s not Fall yet. Perhaps they mean going in October and November. But it is good to know that it’s even better in the Spring than in the Fall. Thanks for the tip Jon!

    The pictures look great as well. Such an amazing looking place. I really do need to get out there.
