Both within easy reach of the parking area, you can also go see Turret Arch and Double Arch without moving the car again. Great photo potential, take your wide angle lens.

This might be the best overall area of the park, because it contains several "highlight" arches in a single area, all of which are relatively easy to get to. Plus you pass Balanced Rock on the way in! If you are limited on time, definitely...More

I had never seen the Windows arches at sunrise before. Absolutely breathtaking. Face your camera to the west towards Turret Arch while standing under the North Window at sunrise. You won't be disappointed. Easy 0.8 mi. RT hike.

Until you find this section of the NP you might find yourself saying "where are all the arches?" Well many of them are here and make for an easy hike around. Don't miss the turnoff after Balanced Rock trailhead.

At only two kilometers length, this easy trail is within reach of almost anybody’s efforts and ability. Done In conjunction with the nearby double arch trail, just to the northwest across the parking lot, one driving stop is sufficient for the district. I highly recommend...More
