Well, it's kind of broken - has a crack through the top - but it is an easy hike and therefore worth taking a look. If you are stopping to look at Sand Dune arch, take a look at this one as well.

You can get a great view of this from parking area, or take a moderate walk over to it. This is a very interesting arch and worth a look.

Broken doesn’t mean this arch isn’t complete. As far as I can tell, it just means it’s cracked and has a few pieces missing. Larger than the nearby Sand Dune Arch, but smaller than others like the Windows Arches, this is a nice span that...More

Most people never make the trek to see Broken Arch in Arches NP. So, that's why it's so free of crowds even at midday in the summer months. The best views of the arch are looking south through the arch back towards the trailhead. Definitely...More

The walk to the broken Arch is pretty much all flat and takes about 10 minutes to reach from the car park. Remarkable geological form, and a great reward, especially given the easy walk.

Set away from the crowds, this arch offers rocks to climb on, a little shade, and I on the day we were there solitude.
