Landscape Arch, Arches National Park

(380+ reviews on the web)
Geologic Formation Hiking Trail
Landscape Arch is the longest of the many natural rock arches located in the Arches National Park in Utah, USA. The arch is among many in the area known as Devil's Garden in the north area of the park. It was named by Frank Beckwith, leader of the Arches National Monument Scientific Expedition, who explored the area in the winter of 1933–1934, and can be reached by short walk/hike of about 1.5 miles along a maintained trail.The Natural Arch and Bridge Society (NABS) now considers the Landscape Arch to be the second longest natural arch in the world, having measured the span in 2004 at 290.1 ± 0.8 feet (88.4 m), which is slightly longer than a measurement made by the Society in 2006 of Kolob Arch in Zion National Park. Since 1991, three slabs of sandstone measuring 30, 47, and 70 feet long have fallen from the thinnest section of Landscape Arch, prompting the Park Service to close the trail that once passed beneath it.

  • Landscape Arch at 306 feet (93.3m) is the longest arch in North America and is an amazingly thin ribbon of rock gracefully spanning the gap and one of the must see arches in the park. The arch is reac...  more »
  • Of all of the arches in the park, I think this one might be one of the biggest. It is located in the Devil's Garden and requires a short hike to get there. The trail will keep you at the bottom of the...  more »
  • This is another fascinating geological feature in Arches National Park. A large chunk of it fell down a few years ago, so you can no longer hike up under it. But it's not a long hike down to the vista...  more »

  • Stunning and gravity defying come to mind when you see it. Morning sun would likely be best for taking photos. Afternoon the sun sets behind the arch and the light is more difficult for photos. You also expect to see Wyle E. Coyote chasing a roadrunner across the span.
  • If you only go this far into the Devils Garden, it's worth it. Phenomenal arch!
  • Short walk and lots of parking, definitely a must see! Lots of other arches close by as well
  • Another gem of an arch at Arches National Park. A short hike (around 1.6 miles return) takes you on the to Landscape Arch, and you could even decide to walk more to the Double O Arch. Definitely worth the time!
  • An iconic arch. But keep going up the trail to double arch and Dark Angel. That is where is gets really cool.
