We took the one mile primitive hike just at sunrise and was glad we did. There were very few people in the parking area and no one else on the primitive trail. Although we had to wait until we reached the far side of Windows for a sunlit photo opportunity, it was worth it. This is a very easy hike... More

This area is full of Arches and very easy to explore. The trail to North Window is actually easy from the parking lot. Take the primitive trail behind the windows for even more views.

We took the primitive path which goes around behind the window arch, which made the hike more interesting, about one mile in total. The Primitive hike goes to the left out of the parking lot, or continues on from the main path if you choose to take that path. Lots of parking, and a great hike for a beginner hiker.

The arches as well as other rock formations in this section contrast beautifully with the Ls Sal Mountains in the background. For those with limited time in the park, I would recommend visiting this section first to get the most bang for your buck. Sunrise would be a spectacular show here with numerous photo opportunities. We visited at sunset and... More

A must see. Great place for some photography. Especially night time photography. Spent all night and sunrise at this place. I think there was only 4 cars in the parking lot.. Pretty much had the place to myself.

The "Windows" part of the Arches was towards the end of the park; however it was early evening with the sun behind us. Made for some fantastic photos. Roads in the Park are very accessible, not like some north of Sedona, Colorado. Remember to get a National Park sticker and save some money.

There might be crowds of people (especially in the summertime if in January it was crowded) since the trail is easy and short. It's a paradise for the photographers in the sunset timing - red rocks galore. Great views to Turret Arch and to the valley. Still, if you are looking for some privacy to experience the nature - not... More

The Windows are quite fun, as the North Window is easily accessible and you can easily stand right in the "window" of the arch. However, with any easily accessible site, EVERYONE was there. It was super crowded both times I was there. I do not like crowds very much, so I never really enjoy the sites as much when there... More
