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

Well worth the drive back to see, especially at sunset. Nice 10 minute hike to the arches - very visible from the road. LARGE openings in the actual "window" and hard to miss. Hike up at sunset and watch as it sets over neighboring Tower Arch, a very special experience and moment.

It's a short walk to cover the loop to see all of these arches. Lots of good spots for pictures. It gives you a great perspective to get right in them and appreciate them from different angles. We felt like kids scrambling around on the rocks. We also wandered over to Double Arch which is on the other side of... More

These are the first arches I saw and I really liked them. There are a few arches clustered together and the hike is like a walk in the park.

This is a nice hike to see Turret Arch and North and South Window Arch. This was the only crowded hike we encountered at Arches National Park.
