This is the only guidebook you will need for a visit to southeastern Utah’s most popular national park. Why is it better than the others? First, it includes multiple trails listed in no other Arches hiking guidebook. It is the most comprehensive Arches hiking book on the market. Second, it is opinionated. Unlike other hiking guidebooks, this guide was not written in cooperation with the National Park Service, so there was no need to diplomatically pretend that one hike is just as good as another. An “Author’s Comments” section for each trail will help you decide if the hike is worth doing. Armed with this guide, visitors can choose a hike that lasts for minutes or a hike that lasts for hours; a hike with spectacular, all-encompassing views or a hike that takes them right up to Native American rock paintings and carvings; a hike with a humble pioneer-era homestead cabin or a hike to the most famous arch in the world. This book will help inform you of all of your options and help you choose the hikes that are best for you. For each hike in this book, you’ll find photos, a map, a detailed trail description, GPS coordinates for the trailhead and other points necessary for easy navigation, and essential trail information such as length and difficulty. Also included in the book is a link to the author’s website where readers can freely view, download, and print larger versions of all of the book’s maps. Author Tristan Higbee has been visiting Arches for nearly 15 years and is the perfect guide for your own Arches adventure. Make the most of your trip to Arches National Park by purchasing this essential book today. Note: This book does not include a detailed, turn-by-turn description of the Fiery Furnace hike. To the author’s knowledge, no Arches hiking guidebook does. The Fiery Furnace hike is a complicated maze through fins and towers of rock, and a ranger-led hike is very strongly recommended. Without a ranger as a guide, it’s all too easy to get lost in the jungle of vertical rock formations.
