Liberty Bell Arch

Liberty Bell Arch Illustration

Liberty Bell Arch is located in a very accessible region of the park. It is so named for it's resemblance to the famous Liberty Bell, at Independence National Historic Park in Pennsylvania. It even includes the "clapper", or the round part of the bell that causes it to ring.

Over millions of years nature formed this geologic structure that is more commonly found in Arches National Monument.

Over geologic time erosion through wind and water created this unusual arch formation.
