There are several smaller areas of Arches National Park that are worthwhile. We combined these with longer hikes and larger areas (Devil’s Garden, Delicate Arch, The Windows) to make the most day of our time.
Sand Dune Arch
The opening to Sand Dune arch is a narrow no passing zone. It’s an 0.3 mile round trip walk.
Once there you almost feel like you’re indoors.
It’s a 1.3 mile round trip walk to Broken Arch. It’s through flat grassland so pretty painless. The rock formations around Broken Arch are interesting too.
The scenic overlooks are also worth a stop.
Balanced Rock is interesting to wander around. It looks different from every angle.
Courthouse Towers and Park Avenue
The bottom two photos are of the front and side of the tower. Yes, they’re really thin.
We also spent some time watching rock climbers.
