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.

The perfect trail with our 2.5 y/o son! My husband, our son, and I all walked this trail very easily. The views of the arch are beautiful, and we were even able to climb up on some rocks at the end of the trail for more fun. The trail itself was mostly sand, with a few bits of scrambling. We loved it!

You can't get right up to this arch. The trail takes you to a weird angle view from the bottom. The views on the way to the end of the trail are better. It is an easy hike though.

Easy walk and pretty, but you cannot access the arch at all, unlike double, windows, turret or broken. It's really high up. We went there to see sunset. The sun didn't set on the arch, but still pretty.

Beautiful arch especially at night. Can see the stars. Need to go through the amphitheater, up to the arch for the best views.

Nice arch, hike is simple but you see it all from the trailhead. Take it just to get a couple nice pics.

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.
