Utah Arches N - Z - Arches National Park
Arches National Monument was created in 1929 and achieved national park status in 1971. Arches National Park contains the largest concentration of natural arches anywhere in the world.
A comprehensive study of the park was undertaken by J Edward McCarrick and Dale J Stevens and was published in their book “The Arches of Arches National Park” in 1988. It contains detailed information and photographs of 527 natural arches. Two additional supplements were issued which increased the number of known arches in the park to around 2000.
Below is a small sample of the arches in the park. Where a ranking is given it is based on the original work by McCarrick and Stevens after adjusting for Private Arch that was discovered in 1991.
