A short loop trail through a big arch. The trail goes through sand dunes and slickrock on its way to Broken Arch. In places the trail isn’t well defined, but well-placed cairns make it easy to follow all the way. The trail goes right through Broken Arch—a nice place to take a break and study a great piece of nature’s art.

An interesting trail with varied views and landscapes. Solitude can be found on some of the side trails leading to other arches. The trail goes right through the broken arch, which could be a barrier for some. Hiking clockwise involves a short steep slide down the slickrock, while hiking clockwise involves climbing the same pitch. I saw some casual hikers going counter-clockwise forced to turn around at this point.

If you stay at the campground, a good one to let the kids explore while supper is cooking.
