Druid Arch Day Hike
- Dramatic Arch
- Needles District of Canyonlands
- Full Day Adventure
- Natural & Cultural History
- Stunning Rock Formations
- Mountain Views
This full-day, moderately strenuous hike will take you on an 11-mile journey through some of the most beautiful landscapes in Canyonlands National Park. We begin and end in Moab, where a 1.5 hour drive takes us south to the remote Needles District entrance to Canyonlands and our trailhead. On the hike you’ll experience stunning panoramic views of the surrounding canyons and rock formations, as well as fascinating natural and cultural history of the area shared by your guide. Our final destination is the highlight of the hike – the magnificent Druid Arch itself. We will have lunch beneath the titanic arch and take time to capture stunning photos of its grandeur. Once we’ve had our fill, we’ll hike back to our starting point with 180-degree different views, which gives us a completely new perspective of the area. A relaxing, scenic 1.5 hour drive back to Moab rounds out the day before we drop you at your hotel.
