This was probably the most challenging height wise. There is a ridge you walk for about 200 or so feet could get to those afraid of heights but you can't fall off unless you jump. It is only room for one person in most places but there are wider spots where you can pass. I got some great pictures from... More

This is my favourite arch! It's easily accessible from the road on a short 1km sand trail, but you can also climb up the sand rock formation and sit right underneath it. It's a great place for a picnic on a hot day, because of the shade under the arches.

This was one of our favorites. It was beautiful. It was also next to the Elephants. You could hike up to this one or not. If you did you could get under and take some pretty incredible photos from inside from underneath. Either way, it's a must see.

When we were here, the area was very crowded. Impossible to get pictures without the climbers in the pictures. If it hadn't been the end of our day, we would've liked to climb up into the arch as well. Very close to the windows section.

Easy to access compared to the delicate Arch. If you can't walk all the way to delicate this is a good one to see.

A must see arch while visiting the park. Beautiful! A great picture opportunity. Mother Nature is wondrous and blessed us here in the US with lots of beautiful scenery.

On this page is says it is a tough 4.2 mile hike. Incorrect. It is actually a very easy hike of a few hundred yards to be able to walk right up to this extraordinary looking place. You can stand right under it with just a little bit of scrambling effort. This is so much easier to get to than... More

Not far from the parking lot and beautiful scenery. It is amazing to see how mother nature can sculpt such beauty from sand and rocks. Worth taking the time to do.

It's such a grand sight that you can't capture in pictures. Visitors are able to walk around inside the arch and take in it's beauty.
