Arches National Park has over 2,000 natural standstone stone arches, as well as many other rock formations including pinnacles, fins, and large balanced rocks. The rocks here are largely red sandstone, but there are many different contrasting colors in the landscape, which makes for very dramatic views. There are also many trails throughout the park.

Arches National Park is a somewhat dog friendly national park. Dogs are not allowed on any of the trails or overlooks, but they are allowed along roads and in campgrounds while on a leash up to 6'.
