Arches National Park - Eagle Park

Eagle Park is the northernmost section of Arches National Park, and is only accessable by the 4-wheel-drive Salt Valley Road. It contains open fields as well as rock walls, monoliths, and many more arches such as Blad Eagle Arch and Eagle Arch. There are no desginated trails in this remote section of the park, far removed from the crowds in the more well-known areas. Go to Photo Collection

Description Blackbrush, grasses, and distant juniper have all increased in size since 1969. Grasses have become more sparse and elevated from the surrouding ground as soil is eroded from this area by wind or water.
