Thru a narrow little canyon and lots of sand (will get in your shoes). Shady most of the day. Pretty little area, but there can be lots of kids (and adults) playing on and around the arch which spoils it a bit (they obviously can't read signs).

We had a picnic lunch under Sand Dune Arch after hiking up to Double-O Arch and back. We found a nice shady place tucked up against the left wall where the arch started. Tucked in so deep and in the shade, we were out of the pictures of others. There is so much sand, that I took off my shoes... More

We did the entire drive at Arches park and he loved it. Highlights were the Sand Dune arch which was an easy, shady walk to see. Also like to see in the petroglyphs at Wolf Ranch and delicate arch.

This arch has an easy hike into a narrow crevasse that shades it from the brutal sun and also provided a really refreshing breeze. As someone else mentioned it would be a good lunch spot. The arch itself is relatively small and when we were there there were signs alerting us to recent falling rocks, so who knows how long... More

We stopped here while wandering around in the park. This is a very short and relatively easy trail. The downside we experienced was the sheer number of people., but nonetheless a great arch that is easy to get to.

The arch itself isn't overly impressive but it's a very short walk to Sand Dune Arch and it has one massive advantage over the other hikes - it's in shade and is very cool, a welcome relief from some of the other walks out to the arches.

This arch is good for shade and has plenty of places to sit and eat lunch. If there is a wind anywhere then this is a sandblaster. It is cool when it is hot and bad news when the wind blows.

This was a fun 10 min walk to see a hidden gem in this land of rock and arches. The sand build up is incredible and a great place for the kids to take a cool break and play in the sand. Beware, the sand sticks to everything; but overall a must see and experience.

The walk was easy and pleasant and cooler. It was one of my favorite hikes of the day. My shoes were filled with the orange sand after the walk, but it was really worth it!
