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. Although you can start at either end of this shuttle trail, starting at the south end results in a totally downhill hike, but the slope is very gradual. However, if you want to arrange your own shuttle (not provided by NPS), start at the north end and have somebody pick you up at the south end.
