The arch can be nearly seen from the road, but the hike to the base is short and easy so unless you are really pressed for time I highly recommend stopping off. We had the trail to ourselves the entire time, and were able to...More

Let me just start by saying, absolutely nobody else on this trail the whole time we were there. Easy trail to Skyline, awesome pictures and I had to pry my 11 year old out of here to get back to the car. It was beautiful,...More

This was one of my favorite arches at Arches National Park. You can see where part of the rock has broken off. You can stand almost directly underneath the base and look up at the arch.

The hike to Skyline Arch is short and easy, with a round trip of less than half a mile. The arch makes for spectacular photographs, owing to its position on the skyline, literally. Plus, a view of the arch from the other side is available...More

This arch has an interesting history illustrated with some photos. It's clear why you are not allowed to go right under it.

This arch is literally just off the roadside and is enormous. It was one of our favourites as there were not many people there :)
