These are a short walk from the parking lot. It isn't a difficult walk and the sights are pretty. There are a lot of little nooks and crannies within the windows that kids can climb on or people can take pictures from!

Once you find a place to park, this is a short hike on paved trails. It is a very popular place. Several arches in addition to North and South Windows are viewed.

It can be difficult to find parking in the middle of the afternoon, and it is extremely crowded. There are also restrooms next to the parking lot. It is an easy loop trail, which allows you to see 3 separate arches. It is nice that...More
