We wanted to see more of the park and we did! John was very eager to share his knowledge of the park and took us to some very out of the way places. It was a very fun morning!
Avoid the crowds at Arches National Park with this 4x4 adventure, with multiple departure times, that takes you off road to explore the rocky terrain of the park from areas where only rugged vehicles can go. Not only can you see fossilized dinosaur tracks, Tower Arch, and Marching Men on your guided tour, but you’ll have access to ice water and lemonade to keep you cool even in the heat.
This Arches National Park tour starts with pickup in central Moab. Meet your guide and board your 4x4 vehicle to start your adventure through this Utah park known for red-rock and sandstone formations.
After a 5-mile (8-kilometer) drive, enter the park with your guide, and learn about the area’s history and legends. Catch sight of some of the more than 2,000 sandstone arches—from giant sandstone fins to tall spires. You might recognize the landscape from movies such as Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Thelma and Louise.
Your guide takes you down backroads and up a steep rock wall that you might not see otherwise and offers insight into the geology and wildlife. Ice water and lemonade are provided. Late afternoon tours may include sunset views.
Leaving, you’ll drive down an old cowboy trail, where you’ll encounter dinosaur footprints and return to central Moab.
