Hero: Eye of the Whale
small-aa Icon

Walking through the Eye of the Whale feels like walking into the mythical Middle Earth. Bright green plant life, pink and reddish sand, and standing trees are seen through the portal view shaped like a giant eye, the Eye of the Whale. Getting there is half the fun. This four-wheel drive road inside Arches National Park is one of the more adventurous ways to visit while avoiding crowds. Deep sand, washes, and slickrock are all surrounded by the otherworldly rock formations that immortalize Arches National Park. Combine this with Tower Arch Road and Willow Springs Road for an unforgettable day in one of the most famous National Parks in the United States.
