When I was planning this trip, I never thought that this is going to be quite exciting. Wonderful view and location.

Fantastic day hiking and wonderful opportunities to find more solitude on some of the less traveled trails. Very busy during peak season, but absolutely worth it.

Not a much frequented, this arch is part of the greater Devil's Garden, but on the south end. If you don't take the entire trail, Sand Dune Arch is just a short distance off the parking. Through a narrow defile and entering a sandy bottomed cavity, towered over by monoliths; suddenly there is the arch near over your head to... More

This was one of our favourite arches we saw for a few reasons. First, it's fairly hidden down a narrow passage so when you first see it you are practically under it. Also, the walk from the parking lot is relatively short and we also like it because there was nobody there when we got there. I would definitely see... More

Great short walk through sand to a lovely area for kids. Quite magical! Small arch surrounded by rock. Perfectly safe for children, easy access for all.

Have visited here two times. It is so much fun to 'squeeze' through the passage. You get the feeling it is a 'secret' place...and so very beautiful. In 2010 we were disappointed to not be able to visit here because there was reconstruction work going on at the only parking lot for this arch. Should be all clear now! Go... More

Sand Dune Arch was our boys' favorite. It was a short walk from the parking area. Before you reach the openness of the area where you find the arch, you walk through a narrow passageway (see picture). I suppose you could walk up the shorter rock formation that creates the narrow passage. It reminded me of a slide. Once we... More
