The Fiery Furnace is a hiking trail for advanced hikers located in Arches National Park. My husband and I had our two elementary-aged daughters with us, so we used caution. However, we still got lost and had to find our way back out the entrance. If it were just the two of us, we probably would have continued on and figured it out even though it was 103 degrees outside in August.
This hike is challenging because it has a maze-like terrain. There were supposed to be arrows to help you guide your way, but we only saw three arrows. After spending two hours trying to find our way and realized we were going in the completely wrong direction we decided to call it quits since our daughters were started to get too hot out in the heat.
I photographed the photo below at one part of the hike that shows the challenging terrain. We were climbing up and over tons of rocks that looked like this. The hike was very fun, and I think we would have lasted longer had it have not been so hot.

Do not bring a tripod.
Wear good hiking shoes or boots.

I started out using 35mm point and shoot cameras, then upgraded to a 35mm DSL camera, and then finally came the world of digital DSL cameras. Gone are the days of having to wait for your film to be developed to see what you captured. Photography has never been so much fun!
