If you don't see at least the Windows area, what's the point og going th Arches NP?

Title says it all. The Windows area is less than 10 min drive from the park entrance, so if you can't make it here, why bother coming to the park. From the parking lot, you... read more

These arches are overrated on here. The turret arch, which is right next to the windows was better. Save your time and go to turret arch and double arch instead. They are both close to the windows and are shorter hikes.

From the parking lot, you have an easy view of the Windows (north and south), Turret Arch and Double arch. Walk around the short (20 min total) trail between the... More

The hike wasn't overly difficult except for the heat of the day. I learned to always carry water on each and every hike. The views were beautiful and well worth the hike. This is such a pretty and interesting area!

This is a fantastic spot in Arches National Park with five different arches visible, four on one side of the parking area and very accessible and another on the other side of the parking area and a bit more difficult to access. The four of us, my best friend, Darryl and two grandson, Tyrik, and Marquel, and I loved our... More

I saw Windows when Arches was quite crowded and didn't get that good of a photo because there were simply so many people. It's still an amazing geological formation to behold and worth a short hike to see up close.

Go early and watch the sunrise light up the Turret Arch and view it through the northern window. You will have to climb up on a steep set o rocks for the best views but hey got for it. For some photos of the Arch you can visit my blog http://ranjanpabraham.blogspot.com

These arches are easily accessible via a short hike from the parking lot. It was the best way to experience the park, by getting up close to the North & South Window to truly appreciate their immense size and grandeur. At one point, the crowds by the South Window dispersed and we were able to take in the silence of... More

This is but one of numerous special and beautiful places in Arches Park. Just a short walk will take you right to this perfect picture spot.

This is the hot spot in the park in every way. You will want to walk to all the sites in this area and that will take some time. Parking is limited and the traffic looks like L.A. at Rush Hour by 11 on the weekends--weekdays too in the summer tourist peak. Bumper to bumper creeping around the loop hoping... More

This was an easy hike with lots of good arches to see , is really good for the young and the old. Was a good little hike for the middle of the day when hot. Parking was hard but with a little patience spots do become available
