Right off the main road, making it a very busy place. Still a great and easy landmark to visit!

A short little hike to see two arches for the price of one... it's unbelievable how big some of the arches are!

Well, it's not called Balanced Rock for nothing! Take this short hike around an amazing geological formation... it may not be with us much longer!

Enjoyable short hike whenever I'm in Arches I like to hike this

I won’t call this a hike, more like a quick trail to view these stunning arches! Perfect place to start and be sure to head over to Windows.

Very scenic arch. A favorite!

Not very exciting. I think there are nicer views for sunrise/sunset

Not the best, but you can climb on the rock facing the arche and get a better view

Great for kids and super short adventure hike for all. Slot canyons, Sand and towering arches. You’ll love it.

The perfect place to go when your kids need a break. Largely shaded with sand to play in (we brought sand toys), it also has some fun places to explore and climb.

The most amazing place we visited at arches. It's awe-inspiring to be nestled under the huge double arches. There's some not-too-steep rock climbing that our kids loved.

easy hike, amazing rock formations but very crowded

nice stop off point in between trails at the south and north ends of the park. good view of the la sal mountain range from here too.

super easy very short trail but a must do to get a close up of balanced rock

It’s alright, as someone mentioned before it only gets you closer to view the arch. I think there is a trail that comes to the arch from the other side because we saw people walking around under it but it’s impossible to access it from this trail.

Very easy short trail, but you wind around until you’re inside various sandy canyons! It is a perfect playground for kids - a giant sandbox. And it has beautiful lines and angles for those interested in photography.

What a delightful surprise! This arch is hidden among a couple of fins. Very different setting from the rest of the Arches.

An easy trail with great views/aspects of the window arches. Quite short but nice to do.

Very short hike that gets you up close with balanced rock. The view from the road doesn’t do the rock justice as you learn it is much bigger from taking the trail.

great hike, people are balancing rocks which is annoying, but a good hike even with little kids

Usually nothing but a 5-star rater because, nature. But the fence is so far back you can’t see any of the fins that make up the “furnace”.... maybe I missed them as others seem to have had better experiences but not a lot of reward here. I’m sure the furnace is beautiful, wherever it is.....

It’s a short trail over sand. I got stuck behind a family. The Pine Tree Arch off the same trail is probably better.

The view point is amazing. If I didn’t have heat exhaustion the day before, I would have gone into the fiery furnace (it’s not actually hot).

This is an easy trail over sand and down a slope.
