Very easy trail— we added on Tunnel and Pine Tree Arches with an easy short addition. Sandy toward the end toward Landscape. Parking lot packed at 10am when we left.

One of the smaller, less popular arches. It still was a terrific hike ,and had some neat views along the way.

If you are trekking out to see Pine Tree Arch, this is a quick stop along the way. Recommend going in the AM for best view and photographs.

As far as arches go, this wasn't anything great to see.

Pretty windy and snowy, really great view! Definitely worth taking the detour to pine tree and tunnel arches.

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

Was not impressed. Most people glanced and kept on walking to Pine Tree Arch.

Did this on the way to landscape arch. Worth the side hike! We also went at the perfect time when the sun was shining through the arch!

Definitely would combine Pine Tree Arch & Tunnel Arch together (they are right next to each other), pretty easy hike, few small hills, walking on dirt & sand. Tunnel Arch is not as exciting as many of the other arches in this area. Could hike down to Landscape Arch, worth it if you have the time, enjoy this sight before it's gone forever!!!

For what it is, this is a great trail. It is so short that it's best to combine it with the Pine Tree Arch and Landscape Arch trails. Wide gravel path, no incline, less crowds by comparison.

Like most of Arches NP this trail is very very crowded. Much of the trail is blocked by families trying to take pictures and scowl if you try to walk by them. While the views are great its hard to rate any higher due to the sheer number of people.

A really cool hike in the Devil's Garden, we caught the Tunnel and Pine Tree Arch spur trails (very short walks) on the way back from Landscape Arch; the whole hike takes about an hour. Tunnel Arch viewpoint actually shows two windows high and to the west... could not find the name of the small window. Highly recommend you take some time to explore this section and go past Landscape Arch as well, and if so take water.
