Delicate Arch is the most famous icon at Arches National Park. It's visible from viewing points at ground level, but like other natural monuments, it's much more impressive close up. Getting to the Arch is a 45 minute hike on dirt trail, over slickrock mounds, and narrow paths with steep drop-offs. Delicate Arch is also notable because it is freestanding, not part of a mountain or larger rock formation.
