Sand Dune Arch in Arches National Park is said to be great for kids but also for adults. This very short linear hike is really cool as you make your way on super soft sand and through narrow canyon walls to a nice sandstone arch. After seeing all the other massive arches this one isn’t as exciting but I really enjoyed the hike to the arch. Total distance is .5 kms and doesn’t take long, unless you stop to build a sand castle. Now if there are strong winds like we had, be prepared for a face full of sand. The wind really hammers through the canyon and whips up the sand really well.

From the parking lot pick up the well worn path and make your way to the right. You will soon have to go through one of the narrow canyons. Once through it keep going and you will be walking on the sand. In a little while you will be at Sand Dune Arch.

Directions:

Make your way to Arches National Park. From the entrance station make your way along the road and after about 27 kms you see a sign for the Sand Dune and Broken Arch parking areas, park here.
