A short hike to a lovely arch with great views. Turret Arch is a beautiful free standing arch in the Windows area of Arches NP. The views over the area are exceptional. Follow the trail to the Windows, bearing right at the first intersection, and near the top of the ridge, leave the trail and go cross country to the Arch. There is good climbing for the kids and by going through the Arch a great view through Turret to the North Window and beyond. Also good views of the Cove of Caves and the Parade of Elephants.

Very short and easy, but the arches are impressive. There were lots of people on the main trail and climbing around the arches, but when I went off on the easy to follow "Primitive Trail", I had a nice stroll on my own.

Not much of a trail, very easy. But still a decent view at the end. Great if you're not a hiker.
