This arch is the aptly named Surprise Arch located inside the Fiery Furnace area of Arches National Park. The furnace is a maze of towering rock fins. It is highly recommended that you go on a guided hiking trip through this area as it is very easy to get turned around and lost. Entrance into this area requires a permit. This arch is a surprise; turn a corner inside this maze and there it is! It’s a large arch uniquely located in an otherworldly and magnificent location.
