This beautiful window looks out onto to a breath-taking valley and 12,000ft mountain range. Turn around and you can see through the Turret Arch. Path leading up the North Window is secured with boards to help prevent slipping but is somewhat steep for those with knee and back problems. Just take it slow. Trails also offer chances to get others... More

Start up the main trail to see the windows independently, and then hike back to the parking lot via the Primitive Loop for what we considered prettier views. The trail only has one main sign, but follow the cairns/rock piles to see where to go. Easy hike of about 20 -25 minutes to do the entire loop. Gorgeous! Get to... More

This area gets so crowded but is definitely a must visit. With multiple arches so close together, this is where you get the most bang for your buck. If you only have a little while in the park, this is where I'd recommend you visit.

We took the lesser walked trail up to the windows arches. It is a quick easy hike but you kind of get in from the side and you feel less as a tourist just walking up to take the mandatory photos. there are lot of people so do not expect to get the arches for your self.

I loved the windows arches! They were positively crawling with people, but I managed to crawl myself behind the first arch, and onto a ledge to get a great view from this arch into the next further on...

As others have commented, this area is a great return on your investment of time and energy. The primitive loop is less traveled and offers expansive views and a quieter visit. The arches themselves are quite accessible, unlike some others in the park, like Landscape, where the area under the arch is off-limits. We went in the late afternoon and... More

It's a short and easy walk with superb views of 3 magnificent arches with a 4th one not far from them. Good for morning pictures. I think it's a must in Arches NP. If you come early you avoid the crowds and can take photos without other folks or with your own :) Highly recommended

I went at Sunrise yesterday and it was so amazing I came back today. I know Delicate Arch and Mesa Arch in Canyonlands have the better reputation among serious photographers, but those are harder to get to (Delicate because of the hike, Mesa because of the drive). Windows is easy. Sunrise was called for 6:45 so I left Moab at... More

This is an arch that is part of a short loop that is pretty east to hike. Beautiful scenery and well worth the stop
