Arches National Park

If you haven’t experienced the vast array of colors in a sunset over the towering high desert red rock formations, we’re sorry to say you haven’t really lived yet! The energy of the rocks combined with the whispering breeze present in this vast natural phenomenon will truly take your breath away. Arches National Park is aptly named, as it is home to over 2,000 natural stone arches, not to mention hundreds of soaring pinnacles, massive fins and giant rocks naturally balanced atop each other in a way that will have you scratching your head and wondering, “How on earth did they get there?” The views will calm as you find a newfound rejuvenation on the trails in this rock formation wonderland.

What to Do at Arches National Park

As with any National Park, we just wouldn’t be a proper guide if we didn’t recommend you start your visit with a peek at the Arches Visitor Center, located just one mile inside the park entrance. This is a great spot to get up-to-date information on what sites are open, which ranger programs are scheduled that day, not to mention using the facilities and keeping your water bottles filled during your visit to Arches National Park in Utah!

Once you’re past the Visitor Center and have navigated your first stretch of switchback roads, you’ll embark on an adventure through Park Avenue and the Courthouse Towers area – named because the sheer walls of the canyon reminded visitors of walking through city streets lined with tall buildings. With gorgeous views of the La Sal Mountains in the distance, you’ll love walking through these massive monoliths and towering walls of red rock.

Next, visit the teetering giant of Balanced Rock while you still can. This iconic sandstone rock stands at a teetering 128 feet tall and looks like it’s balanced atop a pedestal of mudstone, but in actuality, the two are really attached. While together they defy gravity, eventually the 3,600-ton boulder will come crashing down. All the more reason to visit sooner than later.

Next comes the arches. With so many ways to view and experience these beauties, you may never want to leave Arches National Park. Make sure you have your camera handy when you view The Windows Section, a two square mile radius containing a large concentration of arches that will blow your mind. Definitely pay a visit to Delicate Arch, the park’s largest free-standing arch measuring 46’ high and 32’ wide. And finally, don’t forget to check out Devils Garden, located at the end of the park road (approximately 18 miles from the Visitor’s Center). Here you’ll get a first-hand view of Landscape Arch, the longest arch in the park, extending a whopping 306 feet!

The property was VERY NICE and well maintained. The owners have done a GREAT JOB making sure this home has everything you need while you are traveling. Great location to everything in and around Moab. We will be going back next year and this is the only place we will stay!

Entrada at Moab 598 is a beautiful townhouse within the Moab city, access to shopping, Arches, Zip-lining, Paddle-boarding and ATV rental locations were mere minutes away. The kitchen is extremely well stocked with gadgets for all our cooking and baking needs.

We really enjoyed the property. The kitchen has all the tools you need for cooking. The grill is right off the dining room. The bed we slept in was super comfortable (firm). It appeared to us that it was pretty new. I like the no-shoes in the house rule. It was close to downtown enough that you didn't have to drive far, but far enough from downtown not to hear any noise from it. There were two families next to us (attached by one wall) and we didn't hear a peep. I really like that it's an end unit, with a little privacy wall. I looked at several units online and didn't want one that everyone was walking past to the pool. This place is classy. Well done!

We really enjoyed our stay at Entrada 620! It is clear that Scott and Sarah went the extra mile to provide just about everything one would need for a stay in Moab (Examples include extra towels, kitchen stocked with a wide variety seasonings, etc) Location is very central...close to the downtown scene. We enjoyed taking the "townie" bikes out for dinner! We were an adult only group but tons of families staying in the neighboring units created a fun little weekend neighborhood scene.

Property looks brand new; very clean and convenient. Kitchen is stocked with everything needed. Only caveat is that all bedrooms are upstairs so elderly parents would not have worked. Otherwise, great location for the holiday weekend. Walking distance to Moab aquatic center and Main Street.

Hi there, We had a fantastic stay. Location was great. Rooms were perfect and the house was very well kept. The extra beddings and towels were very well appreciated. We'd strongly recommend this place to anyone coming into Moab.

The check in process was painless. The internet was fast. The appliances were new. The couch was comfy and the rooms were clean. We highly recommend staying at this townhome. There was an issue with noisy folks in the pool but the management team shut it down within minutes. Literally within minutes. Will be back!

Absolutely amazing property! We had the best time here. The condo is so roomy and is on point with everything you will need and so clean. It fit our family of 8 adults and 4 kids with tons of room left over. Close to Canyonlands, Arches and a new favorite just up the street is Kane Creek Canyon. The pool was also a plus and the proximity to downtown. We tried to do it all but time runs out. Julie was amazing and so accommodating. We loved this place so much we will for sure add it to our VRBO list of yearly vacations.

We absolutely loved our stay here. The condo is great and very comfortable - nice furnishings/decor, a well-appointed kitchen (even for people who like to cook), and many thoughtful touches (e.g., basket of pool towels, 6 townie bikes and helmets for use around town, hose to wash dirty mountain bikes, nice bbq, etc.). The four bedroom layout with 3 full baths is great for a group of family or friends and the location is close to town (bikeable) and also close to the pool and hot tub. We will definitely stay here again!
