Located on the way to Devil’s Garden in Arches National Park is a small parking lot that marks the trailhead to one of the less well known but more family friendly hikes in the park. The Skyline Arch is often overlooked by travelers but considering the short amount of time it takes, it should be a viable option for most groups.
How to Get There:
If you miss it on your way up though you can always turn around in the Devil’s Garden loop and come back, or do your Devil’s Garden Hiking and catch Skyline Arch on your way back down. That is what we did. We first hiked Landscape Arch and then came back for Skyline Arch.
What You Will See:
This is an extremely easy hike from the parking area down to Skyline Arch. The trail is almost completely flat and less then half a mile round trip. You will be able to see the arch most of the way and the trail will eventually terminate at the base of the wall the arch is in. Unlike other arches in the park you cannot reach this one to climb up inside it; you will have to content yourself with looking at it.
