Elevation gain: 407 feet

Difficulty: Moderate

Arches National Park: Fiery Furnace

This hike requires permits. There are no designated trails and your GPS will not work inside the slot canyons. But the Fiery Furnace has a plethora of red rock fins, towers, spires and even a few arches. And Fiery Furnace is great for exploring in narrow canyons and up and down boulders and rock walls.

Capitol Reef National Park: Grand Wash

This is an easy, family-friendly, picturesque hike. There are beautiful red, white and yellow cliffs that tower over the wash.

Round trip: 4 miles

Elevation Gain: 152

Difficulty: Easy
