The Park Avenue Trail is a wonderful hike in Arches National Park. The trail is relatively easy and should be good for the whole family. The trail takes hikers through skyscrapers of sandstone. Make sure and bring your park map to help identify, Courthouse Towers, Tower of Babel, Three Gossips and the Organ. Views of all are readily available along this trek. For the best photography opportunities, hike Park Avenue in the late afternoon. Devils Garden Campground in Arches National Park is located 18 miles from the park entrance and is open year-round.

History

Earlier settlers to Arches named this area "Park Avenue" because the towering spires reminded them of the New York City skyline.
