If you're driving by and have time stop and see it. It's accessible from the road and a short walk gives you the opportunity to snap a few pics. There was an info board that explained how the arch was formed.

It’s an arch, and its way up there! It’s a short walk here, but its not the best arch. We took a couple of pictures, and went about our way.

This arch is near the campground. It is reached by a short trail from the campground amphitheater or from a pull out along the road. (I first found this view as a jigsaw puzzle - it was fascinating to see it in person for the...More

The trail here is moderate, about half a mile round trip from Devils Garden Road. The arch is high up, hence the name. It was worth seeing, but I wouldn’t rank it as the most impressive ever given its inaccessibility.

Skyline Arch is 0.4 mi/0.6 km roundtrip from the Devils Garden Road. The trail is rated easy with a mostly sand terrain and should take 10-20 min. There are small pullouts (10 cars) on either side of the road. We visited the arch around 2pm...More

Skyline Arch really was named properly, as it does look like it takes up a huge part of the sky from where the most popular photo shots are taken. It's only about a 2-3 min. walk from the parking lot to get the best views...More

In 1969, my family camped for two nights at the devil’s garden camping area exactly opposite the arch in my photos below. What fond memories I have of how easy it was to walk up directly under the arch from our campsite, minding the steep...More

We went to quite a few arches while we visited Arches NP but this was one arch we were disappointed in. The advantage is it's a short hike to this arch that you can see from a distance below it. I'd try spending my time...More
