Skyline Arch Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"A very easy walk to a large arch. True to its name, Skyline Arch dominates the horizon for most of the trip. When you get there, you can see where a mammoth boulder fell out of the arch on a cold
November night in 1940, greatly enlarging the size of the opening. This essentially
doubled the size of the arch."
--Bill Schneider, Hiking Canyonlands and Arches National Parks (Falcon Guides).
"This short hike leads to the base of Skyline Arch, one of Arches National Park’s newest spans. This is a great easy hike for beginners, kids, and senior citizens. The 0.4-mile round-trip hike out to Skyline Arch and back is a fun adventure to one of the national park’s newest arches.This is a great easy hike for beginners, kids, and senior citizens. The 0.4-mile round-trip hike out to Skyline Arch and back is a fun adventure to one of the national park’s newest arches. Start the hike at the trailhead on the right side of a parking area on the east side of the park road before it dead ends."
