This is a good way to see the arch if you have limited mobility or you just don’t want to make the hike. However, the view is very far and you will not get a good view or good pictures from a cell phone. Yet, Delicate Arch should be seen so if this your best option then take it.

Easy to get to, but disappointing after seeing this beauty up close on the hike. If you can't do the hike, definitely worth the stop, but it lacks the panache of getting close.

If you have mobility issues or don't like the heights involved in the Delicate arch trail (or are just short on time), this is a good place to view the famous arch. Obviously, you don't get as good a view as you would from other viewpoints, but it's very accessible.

Not feeling up to the longer hikes, we viewed the arch from the lower viewing area; was able to get nice photos with a telephoto lense. As the adopted symbol of Utah and the image on their license plate, it’s an easy way to see the must-see

We were with a tour so we viewed the arch from the lower viewing area. You can still get a good view of the arch and some decent pics.

We stopped by to see this view of Delicate Arch. It is quite a ways off in the distance from this location. We had hiked up earlier in the morning on the Delicate Arch Trail and we were up close from the other side. This is not as good of a view, but it is a very accessible way to see the Arch that otherwise requires a three mile strenuous hike to see up close. Bring binoculars or a good zoom lens to get a good view of the Arch from here.

The view from the lower Delicate Arch Viewpoint is worth the short drive and 100 yard walk from the lot but bring binoculars. You’ll see the arch above you in the distance. The hike to the upper viewpoint is relatively easy and absolutely worth the effort to get a better prospect,

We stopped by here on our last day at arches to see the delicate arch once more. It is very quick to get to the view point from the parking lot. But of course the arch appears very small. Having done the longer hike to see it up close, this was a nice way to bidding adieu.

You have three choices for viewing Delicate Arch: Delicate Arch Trail, Upper Delicate Arch Viewpoint and Lower Delicate Arch Viewpoint.

Lower Delicate Arch Viewpoint is reached by hiking the Easy (and handicapped-accessible) Lower Delicate Arch Viewpoint trail. It's only 100 yards. You can see the famous arch from this viewpoint, but it looks like a speck unless you're using binoculars or a telephone camera lens. To see what Upper Delicate Arch Viewpoint is like (including a representative photo), read my review, "Very little blue sky visible."

TIP:

* Drive past the Delicate Arch Trail parking lot to reach the upper and lower viewpoints. If there's a traffic jam (people waiting to get into that popular parking lot), drive through the pullout area on the right to continue past without waiting!

If you don’t have the time to hike up to Delicate arch this is a good alternative. The views are across a small canyon and you cannot get up to the arch from this vantage point. The hike to the lower viewpoint is very easy and wheelchair accessible. If you don’t mind a moderate hike go up to the upper viewpoint for a better view of delicate arch.
