Sand Dune Arch isn't the most spectacular arch in the park but where it's located gets you away from most of the people in the park. We visited on a Saturday in mid summer and there was only a couple people back there. Plus most of that trail is shaded between the rocks which was a nice relief from the... More

We went here last June and we came here for our second hike. It was a very short hike and the kids love playing with the sand if you head up the arch there is a little sliver to keep cool. A very fun arch that your kids will love!

Any of the arches easily accessible run the risk of being overcrowded; especially, on the weekend. So, to lessen your worry in this area do one or both of two things: (1) go to the park early in the morning as there are fewer people willing to get there before 10:00 am, (2) drive to the end of the park...

This is a favorite arch because the hike is short and so easy. It's very popular with those with even the smallest of children. You walk on what feels like beach sand and enter into the "fins". Be ready for burst of color that will take your breath away.

This arch is not visible from the parking lot, but don't let that stop you from seeing this really cool arch. It is a sort, easy walk through an opening in the rocks. The sand around this arch was amazing. It was so fine and soft.

This was a fun, short, and easy hike to a secluded arch. The sand and narrow canyon made it interesting and fun.

Before I begin, let me just say that I don't dislike children. I get it, this was an easy arch to get to and all. There was a tiny bit of slot canyon on the way in, and then there was very nice red sand every where. A nice, picturesque arch welcomes you at the end of the trail, along... More

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