Cox Canyon Arch is hard to find with no marked trails or roads but we had a great time exploring trying to find our way up to it. Once you find the parking area (just passed an oil well) it's a pretty short hike up....More

The largest of the arches around Aztec. Eazy enough to find, but no signs and dirt roads. Park right next to a rather large pumping station bellowing noise, so it's hard to miss. The trail is short, but has 2 spots that you have to...More

The arches around aztec were nice however finding them was not always easy, they have GPS coordinates but if you don't have a GPS unit that doesn't help. The brochure we received was helpful but either clear paths or markers leading to the arches would...More

Got great directions. Roads were really bad. Arches weren't that fascinating, once one or two are seen.

Make the time to enjoy the scenery as well as climb around and explore! The arches are relatively easy to locate and some you can pull right up to them!

We didn't have a GPS, but the Aztec visitors center has a brochure that will direct you to several of the arches. The directions are a little hard to follow since these are off gas well roads. But, GPS coordinates are available for download which...More

I got a "Aztec Arches" brochure from the Aztec Ruins office. Although the directions overwhelmed me at first, they are all in the same area and most are down the same road. You MUST use your trip odometer. If you have a sense of adventure...More

There is no specific address, they are spread across the county. The visitors center at 123 N. Main Street, Aztec NM 87410 would be a great starting place to explore the arches.
