Marching Men and Tower Arch Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Arches National Park offers a number of “major attractions” served by developed trails, but each of these destinations also features opportunities for informal side trips or extensions. Additionally, many very pleasant places are not served by trails but are still easily accessible.

This is rugged-looking country, but it is also very delicate. Irresponsible hikers can leave long-lasting scars. Avoid wandering through patches of biological soil crust—low-lying, nonflowering plants. Big, black, and bumpy when mature, this important crust is nearly invisible in its early developmental stages. Providing nutrients for higher plants and helping hold the sand in place are critical roles for this important but often ignored plant community."

A very scenic hike thru the high desert. Not that difficult for most hikers, since the worst is climbing up the bluffs right from the start. The rest is mostly level or slight incline. Views are excellent,as is the arch at the end. No crowds to worry about here, however this can be a hot trek if the weather is warm. Worst thing about the hike is getting there. Road is terrible, especially after a rainstorm. High clearance vehicle is best.
