As a Native New Mexican, I say, as you're heading to La Ventana, on the right side of the highway, you'll see a Sign for the site. Rather than looking to your left, keep looking right. Drive up the hill, until you find a widening in the shoulder, Carefully turn around and drive back the way you came. You'll understand... More

Definitely worth your time to hike the short trail to this incredible Arch. Surrounding cliffs aren't bad either. Great early in the am.

We went to the ranger station to ask about what to see and he recommended the arch. It's a lot bigger than you might think. They had hiking trails available but we simply stopped to take in the natural beauty. This is not a lot further into the park and it's definitely worth your time to stop and take a... More

A sight to behold, the arch is tall and impressive against the blue, blue New Mexico sky. You can imagine the Native Peoples of ancient times passing by the arch as they were traveling the area. If you listen quietly, you can still hear their gentle footsteps.

The trail leads right up to the foot of the arch. The arch is beautiful. it is a single structure. Not as great as some of the arches in Utah, but well worth a stop.

Don't miss this stop. The arch is breath-taking. Easy to walk to from the parking lot. We only spent about 20 minutes, just a quick walk to this site.

This natural arch is breath-taking; there are signs and information nearby about prehistoric times when dinosaurs roamed this area. There are volcanic remains in the area and a place to view the "lava waterfalls." Rocks in the area are black (on the ground). The rock formations are massive, so there is no need for high-rise buildings. There are cactii all... More

beautiful view of nature's handiwork! We took the short walk to this arch and were impressed by its beauty. Lovely wildflowers along the way and lots of birds too!

I've seen better, but if you haven't seen wind arch then you should go. It is beautiful scenery and the walk is easy. You might just get to see some of the locals repelling from the top.
