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.

Its near to the sand dune arch but need to walk bit further to reach here. Just go up on the rocks after the arch to see the stunning views of snow capped mountains with rocks.

The Broken Arch trail is a easy hike just south of Devil's Garden Campground. We enjoyed seeing this arch and found the area much less crowded then at Devil's Garden, where it is something of a challenge to even finding parking space. There is a...More
