We did this after Sand Dune Arch, and I must say, it is my favorite of the two. Yes, the red sand was very cool and nice and soft, but a body can't move without children on every side. Broken Arch, on the other hand, while it is quite an easy hike, doesn't attract nearly as many people. We probably... More

A few have mentioned Tapestry Arch - it's not even on all the trail maps but it's on this hike and not to be missed! We hiked from the Devils Garden campground and went to Tapestry arch, Broken Arch and then headed back because of the wind. Tapestry was the secret gem - turned out to be one of my... More

The walk to this lovely arch was easy, I thought. Though it was a weekday, a crowd was developing, which is understandable. I nonetheless managed to get some good photos without people in them.

There are two arches on this easy hike, Sand Dune Arch and Broken Arch. The trail to Broken Arch is sandy, but flat and only about a quarter mile out. The Arch itself is cool, but getting a photograph of it without other people in the picture will take a little patience as this is a very busy place. This... More

We visited this Arch as a loop with the Sand Dune Arch. The hike was easy but enjoyable and the arch was beautiful. What wasn't on the map was that the trail from Broken Arch to the Devil's Garden Campground includes another trail to the smaller Tapestry Arch.

My 6 and 8 yr old loved this hike the best. An easy hike through open grassland that wraps around to a view of an arch that you can walk right through. We spotted a lizard, chipmunk and rabbit along the way and the hike was quieter than the rest.

We parked by the campsite and hiked to Broken Arch. On the way you see Tapestry Arch which is well worth the detour. After you reach Broken Arch continue on to Sand Dune Arch. From Sand Dune we hiked back to the campsite via the trail from Sand Dune Arch. It is a nice loop hike.

Another good one for photographs. Best with some blue sky behind it! Easy trail across open grassland. 2.1km round trip

We started at the Sand Dunes Arch parking area and walked across an open field towards Broken Arch. The views were wonderful and there were a lot of wildflowers along the path. The path was flat and sandy (not a problem) but exposed to the sun so take plenty of water and sunscreen. We got to Broken Arch, took some... More
