Welcome to the Arches National Park located in Moab, Utah!
This place was amazing to see, and is well worth the stop if passing by. If your hauling a big rig, this might be an issue getting into the park due to a very steep inclines hill with multiple sharp switch backs. Places like this is why I’m glad the 5th wheel was left behind, because there would be no way of hauling the trailer up the hill.
If you don’t have the National park pass, expect to pay $30.00 min. To get in. There’s an information center at the main parking lot that gives the history, and information on the park that is worth checking out. The drive up will have multiple pullovers to get pictures, or head out on the hiking trails to get deeper into the rock formations. Expect to spend a good 3 to 4 hours here if not longer. Of course like anything, you save the best for last, which is why you will want to drive to the end to see some of the most amazing rock structures that the park has to offer. Not sure what the exact miles are, but you can expect to have about a 15 mile drive (or so it seemed) to see the driving part of the park, with endless trailheads at each major destination along the way.
Overall, the price may seem to be a bit steep to get in, but if this is a once in a lifetime experience, I would highly look at making a stop here. It’s an experience you’ll never forget, but may regret in the future of not making the stop.
