La Ventana Arch is about a 28 mile drive south of Highway 40. At about the nine mile mark is a Ranger Station with tons of information about the area and a Ranger who was not only very informative but also a really nice person. Traveling about another 10 miles south you come to a beautiful scenic overlook. Then at the 28 mile mark you come to La Ventana Arch, there is ample parking and Rest Rooms. A short walk takes you to the Arch itself. We made the trip here in just over one and one half hours from Albuquerque and it was worth the trip. The scenery is incredible and not to be missed.

Isn't nature grand! It always is, but this is a really big natural arch. It's right off a paved road across from black lava flow rocks which the arch's light sandstone are in nice contrast. Take a short 1/4 mile easy walk to the base. It's a close as you can get. There are outhouses, but lacks more informational signs about the size of the arch and difference of flora/fauna inside and under the arch. 'Course if they spent more on it, then maybe they'd charge. It is free right now.
No matter what angle you look or photograph, it is beautiful. The flat path is dirt, but I think the short distance a wheelchair could do it. Picnic areas are just south on the same paved road.
