It was a gorgeous easy hike! We did this the same day we arrived in Moab. We weren't looking for something too strenuous, as we had just drove across the country without stopping. It had some beautiful views making for some beautiful photographs! I would definitely recommend this as an introduction into what you will see in the park! Definitely... More

There are a lot of stair leading up to Windows. They are shallow but there are a lot of them. Great views from the top. This is a busy area so come early or enjoy your fellow visitors!

I LOVED the Windows! However we did not get to see ALL the stops in the park so I cannot tell you it was my favorite. We arrived later in the day into Moab so we had a few hours before the sunset. We ventured through the park and ended up at the windows. We climbed around on the rocks... More

We kind of drove around this area at sunset. Breath-taking views! Very accessible for little kids! Just driving through the park is a thrill of its own!

Easy to go, round trip which takes you couple of minutes and you can enjoy nice windows or arches? Parking lot is located so close and during this session it is also few meters to double arch.

We liked both the north and south window but it's difficult to get a clean shot without other people in it. When you walk to the Turret arch you can get both the windows in one shot. Looks like a grumpy face then ;-)

This was our favorite thing we got to see in the park. We did the primitive trail loop, and it was moderate in difficulty. The view was magnificent. Most definitely worth the time to see the three arches in this area!

On our 5th trip to arches we realized we'd never walked most of this trail. In winter there was some ice, but not enough that day to impede visiting the entire Windows area. All new to us - but then every time we visit, we find new features and exciting experience.

Good idea to go see it at Sunrise since you will be all by yourselves. Otherwise, it is also a good idea to go see it at sunset

One of the highlights of the trip. It is an easy walk from the parking lot to view the North and South Windows. The primitive walking around the back is a bit more daunting, but worth the effort for the views/. The visitor center recommended this spot as the best one for viewing the sunset. Another wonderful sight in a... More
