  • The sign at the entrance of the trail is very promising - but then quite many lost. In the distance we saw some people through the area and are in the same direction - unfortunately completely wrong. The arch itself is nice and quite near the parking lot so there can do everyone (on the rocks)

  • These are beautiful natural rock formations to see on a slow drive through Joshua Tree National Park . But please do stop, get out & walk the easy 0.5 mile trail to the Arch Rock. My only negative com...  more »
  • It was neat, but most of the people we passed said, "Is this it?" Unless you are able to do a bit of hiking, this is one of those 5-10 minutes stops...

  • There is a short 2/10 mile (0.3 km) round-trip hike to get to one of the few arches found in this park. The arch is not huge so don't expect it to be like the ones found in Utah. The arch has a couple of boulders laying against it you may not get any fantastic natural frame pictures. Still, an interesting site for a small effort. As with all hikes in Joshua Tree, bring water, wear sunblock and a hat as there is little or no shade depending on the time of day.
  • Eh. It's cool and short, but cooler places in the park. Wish I would have come at night like someone else on this suggested.
  • An amazing place to go at night. The view in the back drop of the milkway galaxy looks brilliant.
  • Amazing park with marvelous views of huge stones, exhibits and camping places.
  • Fun & easy to climb at sunset or sunrise when it's not too hot.
