This site features more than 2,000 natural sandstone arches, with some of the most popular arches in the park being Delicate Arch, Landscape Arch and Double Arch. Millions of years of erosion have created these structures in a desert climate where the arid ground has life-sustaining biological soil crusts and potholes that serve as natural water-collecting basins. Other geologic formations include stone pinnacles, fins, and balancing rocks.[1]

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'.
