ARCHES NATIONAL PARK — Free day-use permits for canyoneering and rock climbing in Arches National Park are now available online.

Canyoneers are required to self-register for all routes except for those in the Fiery Furnace. Permits for the Fiery Furnace still need to be obtained at the park's visitors center.

Comment on this story

Canyoneering groups on the Fiery Furnace and Lost Spring Canyon routes will be limited to six people, while group size elsewhere will be limited to 10 people.

Rock climbers are encouraged to self-register, and groups will be limited to five people. Day-use data will be used to assist the National Park Service in actively managing and monitoring desired resource and visitor experience conditions.

Online permits and more information are available on the park's canyoneering and rock climbing websites. Self-registration permits for routes other than the Fiery Furnace are also available outside Arches Visitor Center at the climbing and canyoneering panel.
