Description

Definitely one of Arch's must-see attractions, Landscape Arch is the longest arch in Arches National Park, and the fifth longest in the world at about 290 feet*. It's even longer than Zion's Kolob Arch. The arch appears impossibly thin which adds to its beauty and uniqueness. In fact, the thinnest section is only about 6 feet thick!

*As measured by the Natural Arch and Bridge Society; other sources say it's longer or even the longest.

Short Walk: Accessing Landscape Arch is fairly easy. You can park at the Devil's Garden Trailhead Parking area and hike along the Devils Garden Main Trail. The first 0.8 miles of trail is paved and flat, making the going very easy and accessible (although sand can blow onto the paving). You can see the arch from the end of the paved area. However, the best views are available by continuing on the Devils Garden Main Trail and the Landscape Arch Trail. This part is very sandy but still flat, and not very long. You can no longer go under the arch due to some rockfalls back in the 90s.

Family Friendly: A flat and easy trail to one of the most spectacular arches in the world!
