1/5 mile round trip hike from the parking through beautiful landscape. Easy going even for me (completely not athletic and not even moderately experience hiker) but the view of the arch is simply beautiful. On your way you have nice views also for the Mountains...More

The hike to Broken Arch (not broken at all, though wearing thin along its lintel) is short and easy. The established trail extends through the arch on its way to the Devils Garden Campground, providing photo opportunities from both sides. Additionally, about midway between Broken...More

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.
