Arches National Park, Moab: 33 reviews and 64 photos

  Cove of Arches
by iandsmith

When they say "arches", they mean "arches". Arches are an unusual formation in the world of geology but here they have a list of all the arches.
Now, an arch isn't called an arch unless it's over a metre round. Bearing that in mind there are over 2,000 in this park alone!
Naturally enough, they are spread over a large area and some are much more accessible than others. In fact, some require overnight treks to view.
However, some places have them in abundance and the place where you view the North and South Window has several within a kilometre radius with the Cove of Arches being the most prolific.
It's located at the end of a dead end road that is one of the most popular destinations in Arches National Park.
