A scenic stroll in the shadow of nature’s skyscrapers. The Park Avenue Trail is most aptly named for New York City’s famous street. Early travelers noticed a similarity between these sandstone spires and the famous skyscrapers along New York’s Park Avenue, and the name stuck. The main difference, of course, is that nature, not mankind, sculpted the “skyscrapers” of Arches National Park.

Lots of fascinating rock formations, and an easy walk from south to north. After the first portion, the trail is not very well marked, but that doesn't matter, there's only one way to go.

A surprisingly interesting walk, very easy from south to north, slightly harder from north to south. Some very interesting formations. I particularly liked the monolith with the broken top that had slid nearly half way off.
