Description

Join us on a day hiking tour of the stunning Devils Garden Loop in Arches National Park! This 7.9 mile trail is the longest maintained hiking trail in the park and offers a diverse range of breathtaking scenery. Our knowledgeable guide will lead you through the sandstone fins and arches of this natural wonderland, including the iconic Landscape Arch, which spans over 300 feet.

Along the way, we’ll also pass by the impressive Tunnel Arch, Pine Tree Arch, and Navajo Arch. You’ll have the opportunity to learn about the geologic forces that shaped this landscape, as well as the unique flora and fauna that call this area home.

As we hike, we’ll be treated to stunning views of the surrounding red rock formations, including the towering La Sal Mountains in the distance. We’ll take time to stop and rest, and enjoy a delicious picnic lunch provided by your guide. Don’t forget your camera, as there will be ample opportunities to capture photos of the incredible scenery.

This hike is considered moderate, with some scrambling over slickrock and narrow ledges, so a moderate level of fitness and surefootedness is required. But the stunning views and unique rock formations make it all worth it!

An unforgettable experience.

2 months ago

This was our second trip with Wildland Trekking and it won't be our last! We plan our vacations around great hiking destinations and Wildland Trekking day hikes are the highlights of our vacations. Dakota was an excellent guide! He had great knowledge of the park and by the end of the day, we felt like we were hiking with a friend.
