This linear trail takes you through Park Avenue, a giant fin of rock that looks New York skyscrapers in Arches National Park. Also, a lot of the towering rock is sitting precariously just waiting for the big gust of wind to topple it over. Pretty amazing! At the end of the trail you will reach the organ and the courthouse towers viewpoint. The trail is 3.5 kms long and takes about 1 hour to complete.

Pick up the trail from the parking area. The trail is easy to follow as you make your way down. Once you get to the road at the end make your way across to the Organ and Courthouse Towers Viewpoint. After you have enjoyed the views, time to make your way back, this time all up hill!!

Directions:

Make your way to Arches National Park. From the entrance station it is about 4 kms to the Park Avenue viewpoint and trailhead parking area.

Also, if you have two cars and walk end to end from the Park Avenue parking area, it's downhill the entire way. This is one of the prettiest areas of the park. Downside None really, although for some reason I find the actual hiking route somewhat boring. I love the scenery, but the trail route doesn't do much for me. Hard to explain. Comment I've done this in early morning and late afternoon. Way better in late afternoon, and fewer people.
