There is one main paved road into the park, and this road has two branches. Stop off at every single viewpoint. All but two of the sites can easily been seen within short walks. Add this to your itinerary and move on!

There are 2 other main easily accessible hikes: One is to Delicate Arch– 3 miles (4.8 km) round trip,

This hike begins at Wolfe Ranch parking area (Point C on this Map.)
The hike is 3 miles (4.8 km) round trip and can take up to 2-3 hours. The first half-mile is a well-defined trail. Upon reaching the slickrock, follow the rock cairns or the other people. The trail climbs steadily and levels out toward the top of this rock face. Just before you get to Delicate Arch, the trail traverses a rock ledge for about 200 yards (183 m).

There are crowds there at sunrise and sunset times.

Don’t even both going to do the Delicate Arch Viewpoint. You can’t see anything except a long hike to view the arch from a way off.
