A short hike to another of Arches NP's pretty arches Another of the short hikes in Arches NP to a pretty Arch situated in the sandstone upthrusts of the area. This arch can also be reached from the Devils Garden campground. Unique to this arch is the adjoining sandstone wall, eroded to look almost like a row of grain silos reaching into the sky.

Ok hike, sadly the closer you get to this arch the less of the opening you can see, so not really sure if it's worth it (at least for a picture perspective,) only do it if you have extra time, better trails in the park

Beautiful, easy hike. Arch is best seen/photographed from closer to trail head. Hike up is cool and scrambling up is possible. Quick hike, definitely recommended.

Super easy hike. Interesting history behind how this arch grew in size. Definitely would recommend to anyone - great little trail for the kiddos.

Flat, easy hike. If you have the time (more than half a day in the park), this one is worthwhile.

A short trail up to Skyline Arch. There are a lot of fun bouldering opportunities in the immediate area.

This arch is visible from the main road to Devil's Garden. As you get closer, you realize that it is a whole lot larger than you thought. Pretty tough to get under.

You can see Skyline Arch from the main Arches NP road. We decided to take a closer look, as the hike is easy and very short only 0.4mi. from the parking lot. As we got closer, we couldn't believe how big the arch was. Its opening doubled in size in 1940 when a huge boulder tumbled out of it. We walked up to the wall, but couldn't climb up to it; we could climb a wall face on an adjacent rock to get more of a view through the arch.

Although this hike is a short spur off the Landscape Arch trail, its worth the trip. A little scrambling across some rocks is necessary in order to take a good picture.
