A bit strenuous to get to but oh so worth it. This was one of my favorite arches in the entire park. The view through the 2 arches is AMAZING. 10/10 worth the hike. There are trees along the way if you need to rest in the shade.

This trail is tough because the ground is almost never flat. You can definitely feel it by the end in your toes! Also this trail isn’t well marked. It was tough to follow at points. Worth it though I would recommend!

May 2019 trip to Southwest, fifth visit to UT, last time was 10 years ago in late spring. Day 5 This was mine first National Park I visit 22 years ago in late spring. First time at Devils Garden. More of stormy weather on the way, yet parking was still extremely crowded. This was mine fourth arch to see today (done Tunnel, Pine Tree and Landscape). Spectacular views through the opening. Lot less hikers are here because trail is more difficult. Best if combined with Navajo Arch.

Absolutely amazing hike - we did it just before sunset and was truly beautiful. Once we left main trail we were all alone and could enjoy the view. Not for kids due some climbs with steep falls on both sides.

This is not the easiest arch to get to but it’s very beautiful. If you go clockwise on devils garden trail and think ‘that was probably the worse of it’ please think again!

Definitely recommend a visit to Partition Arch (Navajo Arch, not so much). A short, easy side trip off the main Devils Garden trail.

Did this as part of the Devils Garden trail and this was absolutely my favorite arch of that trail. the view through the arch is wonderful and the trail is a short stroll off the main Devils trail.

Great hike. I don’t know that I’d call this one hard. Probably more moderate (I took my 10 yo who had no problem). The first mile was sand and mostly level. Then you moved onto the primitive path. Not very many markings (which is to be expected) but pretty trafficked out so it was easy to stay on the path. It’s a great way to get a smorgasbord of arches in one hike. The valley views were breathtaking. A definite must when going to the Arches!

The other one next to it is nicer, but still worth making that 0.2 detour!

Short spur off of the Devils garden trail, generally do before Navaho. Be sure and do.
