This is a really nice spot and the arch is well visible from the parking lot or better a few steps down the trail. We had already done a lot of hiking earlier in the day so didn’t do the full trail here but you...More
Stopped by to see the arch and was wowed by the scenery. The short hike to the arch is paved part of the way and gravel the rest of the way. It is about 1/4 mile to bottom of the arch. This is a really...More
This is a terrific roadside attraction. Assuming you were going down this road anyway, it's a huge bonus. You can see it just fine from the parking lot and strolling to it is a breeze. It's a bit of a climb if you want to...More
This is an impressive natural Arch. It's easy access from the highway, and only a short hike from the parking spot. Aside from the arch itself there isn't much else along the short trail from the parking lot to the arch.
This was on our list of places to see and so glad it was. If using your GPS it will direct you right there but as others said, watch for the sign or you might pass it up. The arch can be seen from the...More
To visit La Ventana Arch you have to drive a number of miles down HWY 114. Although marked, it is quite easy to bypass as the marker for the site is fairly close to the arch.
When I visited, it was obvious that park personnel...More
Not sure how large your large rv is. The parking was open and accessible and could accommodate an 7 person rental type rv. It was also not very busy so you may just be able to park on the side.

One option would be to combine White Sands, Carlsbad Caverns and Guadalujpe Mountains. Is there anything else i could add to the itinerary for this option?

Ten days would be very tight for your itinerary. Consider that New Mexico is the 5th largest state in the U.S. For example: from Arizona state line to Texas state line is 371 miles. and north to south Colo. state line to Texasis 496 miles. In addition to the mileage, you will be coming during the height of the winter, so there could be snow at the higher elevations. New Mexico elevation goes from 2000 ft. in the south to over 10,000 ft. in the north. If you do only the southern part of the...More
