    I'll be camping at Arches at the beginning of June with my two sons and I'm trying find information on some of the trails near the park. I've been looking at the Moab site and there are quite a few recommendations. Trying to find out if the trails are clearly marked once you get on them. Not looking to do anything to crazy because I'll be bringing a stock OR 4X4.

    Any information you can share would be great.

    Buy a trail book. Theres an endless amount of stock friendly “trails” around Moab.

    Thanks! It's one of the things I plan to do, but just wondering how well the trails are marked once you get on them.

    Depends greatly from trail to trail. Stuff like fins and things are pretty obvious. If yougo drive say White Rim Road, theres a ton of dirt roads out there. Theres no simple answer.

    If you want some easy sandstone trails, run fins and things and then hells revenge. Its all easy to follow and bypassable. For a more scenic longer trip look into white rim road

    Great series of guidebooks. Make sure to visit their website, as you can download all the GPS waypoints from there.

    Don't forget about the trails inside Arches. They're a great way to avoid the crowds, and see parts of the park otherwise inaccessible without significant hiking.

    You can use BLM 378 (Willow springs trail) to access the park from the west, or salt valley road to access it from the north. See the attached park map and BLM map for info on these and the trails wholly inside the park
