What is the World Arch Database?

Commonly known as the “WAD” in arch hunting circles, the World Arch Database is the premier site for information on natural arches and bridges worldwide. Whether you’re a photographer, hiker, mountain biker, paddler, boater or just about any other kind of outdoor enthusiast, the WAD will help you to know which arches are the best ones to visit or photograph within your area of interest!

While other web sites dedicated to natural arches are great fun and have lots of information and photos of arches, none of them are comprehensive. Nor is the data they contain searchable and useful for outdoor enthusiasts. The WAD contains data on over 14,000 arches and bridges worldwide and is continuously checked and updated by arch hunting experts. And it works on PCs, Macs, tablets and most smartphones!
