    Courthouse Towers

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    These are the sandstone formations that stand tall and proud at the end of the South Park Avenue Trail. The trailexit parking lot is just around the bend.

    Not like any other courthouse I've seen

    Hike to Delicate Arch

    by shorty68 Written Feb 25, 2003

    The hike to Delicate Arch is long and uphill, but the arch at the end makes it all worthwhile. You should try to make this hike in the cooler part of the day.

    Drive around the park at sunrise.

    The rock formations look best at sunrise or sunset. The attached picture is a picture of the Three Gossips taken during the early morning.

    Three Gossips

    by Ischyros Updated Nov 7, 2002

    The Three Gossips is an odd rock fin capped with boulders. The Three Gossips is located at the pulloff along the main park road at the end of the Park Avenue trail.

    Balanced Rock

    A quick stop at this gravity-defying rock is a must! View it from the pull-off or hike the very short trail to the base and get an idea of exactly how tall this giant rock is!
