Description

Druid Arch is one of the most amazing arches near Moab, and located in a unique, isolated area that will make you think of sci-fi movies. The hike there gets steep at the end, but is well worth the journey.

All-Day Hike: You'll need to hike through the Needles District in Canyonlands National Park. The most direct route is to follow the Druid Arch Trail which is wonderful by itself. Very few people come this way compared to the popular arches in Arches National Park, making the trip all the more worth it.
