This was our first time hiking to the Tower Arch. It is out of the way, but well worth the time. First, the drive out on Salt Valley Rd. to the Klondike Bluffs Rd. is primitive. The road is not paved and it is narrow in places. It takes about a half hour or so to drive out there. Thankfully, we had a RAV4 that sat up higher. Here are some things I wished I knew as a first timer. As you are walking out on the path, you shortly come up to a rock wall. It is not too steep and it doesn't last long, but it is a surprise if you are not expecting it. The trail is pretty primitive as well. It is mostly over rock and you need to watch the cairns closely. The last part is sandy dunes that are an uphill slog toward the end. After you cross a ridge of rock, and go through some rocky fins, you are there. And it is a beautiful sight! One of our favorites. It is definately worth the hike.

It is a bit out of the way and you need a 4x4 to get there. We took a 4x4 tour of Arches by Navtec that brought us by here. From the parking area to the arch is a short hike down a and up over some rocks but totally worth the trip. It is one of the least seen arches in the park mostly due to its remote location.

This arch is only accessible with four wheel drive. You start off on a paved road in the park that quickly becomes a rock-crawler. We've done this many times and the "road" is much rougher now than it was 20 years ago. The arch is a short walk from the road. Very isolated and beautiful. There are a couple of other arches to the right of it that are harder to see because they have red rock in the background (no sky).

This was so amazing. The admission for a seven day entrance is $30. If you know that you are going to visit other national parks in southern Utah, they have another pass that you can get. So many hiking areas that you can use. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would come back again. I would heed the warning about arriving before 8am or after 2pm. Line to enter park at 9am was 30 minutes long. When we went back by in the afternoon, there was no line.

We'd already hiked SO much that day that I had to lie to my husband and tell him it "wasn't that far" so he would go with me. That and the opportunity to drive his truck down a dirt road, and he was in. :-)

It was worth the drive and worth the hike. This was the best arch in the park and with limited people, we had it all to ourselves for about 20 minutes. It was magical and a great way to end a long day in the park.

Without a doubt, my favorite hike, favorite arch! The hike to the arch is half the adventure. If you want to experience the park away from the crazy crowds, do this! Amazing views and solitude!

One of the many beautiful sites in Arches National Park. If you like you can home up close or get a more wider view without any effort.

This was hands down, my favorite hike of the Arches Park. I found the other arches' trail overrated and overcrowded. Due to its not so favorable location (off road driving), this trail was not crowded at all. I would rate it as moderate, not particularly long (about 3miles/5km) nor steep (600 feet/ 200 m elevation gain). The sunset views were amazing. I would definitely recommend the hike at sunset.

The 8 mile road to the trailhead was gravel/ dirt but smooth. It would definitely not be passable in the rain. The first little bit involves a rock scramble but it wasn't too bad. After that, there was some up and down, but no more scrambles. The whole hike was lovely with rock formations and views everywhere. The arch at the end was nice too. :) There were people there, but not very many, especially compared to the roadside attractions.
