  • One half of an interesting hike. Not really broken, just cracked. Walk from Sand Dune Arch is about half mile across open (hot) plain, but you can climb up through the arch for a photo and walk...

  • It's a nice arch, away from the crowds. The hike is through meadows and is flat. It is very peaceful.

  • My favorite arch in Arches excepting Double Arch, just too cool. The way the arch is framed in the rock wall is crazy, to continue on the trail you actually have to climb up and into the arch. Very cool and requires some dexterity. (We were here in the winter, bulky coats and the such). Easy arch to sit by and relax for a while. Beautiful geologic formation. Be respectful and be safe. Best place in the park in our opinion to view the Colorado River canyon to the South East
  • This was a really neat arch found on a trail with two other arches that were worthwhile visits in and of themselves. The crack/fissure in the middle made it an interesting arch to look at, but aside from Landscape Arch, no other arch I saw had me more worried that the next time I make it to Utah the arch will no longer be there. See it while you can
