Got lots of sand in my sneakers on this hike, but totally worth it. Another must see arch while visiting the park.

Very fun! you are able to walk back into the dunes between slabs of red rock. It was heaven for our daughter... and let's be honest, me. We enjoyed playing in the sand under the arch.

We stopped at Sand Dune Arch trail head to check it out on a Friday afternoon. It was crowded with people who refused to abide by the signs that advised of current danger at the arch and to stay out from underneath it. Simple instruction, however ignored by a large number who wanted to take pictures of their kids in... More

We completed this trail as part of the Broken Arch, Devil's Garden Campground loop. It is also accessible as a short walk from a nearby turn out. There was a ranger at the arch when we visited who was kind enough to take our picture for us.

Sand Dune Arch is a nice one, and it's right by the road - an easy walk for most people. You can also walk right up to and under it, which you can't do with a lot of other arches, so it's quite interesting to be able to get a close look. But as you might expect given the ease,... More

I have always enjoyed this arch in Arches National Park. It is very accessible. One of only arch which is covered almost all the time in shade. The sand can be very cold and it is better to wear shoes.

This is a very short hike to this arch and worth it. Even the hike to the arch is interesting. If you are adventurous you can even get to the top of this arch

A popular one with children who can play in the sand on the way to this arch. Narrow way through at one point.

You walk through a series of large sandstone rocks that open out to a larger area of sand and high rocks and a relatively small arch. Worth a visit but there are better places
