This is a nice walk to the windows section of Arches National Park. This loop is about 2 kms long and takes in three arches; turret arch, north and south windows. The time it takes to complete this is totally up to you, if you stop to enjoy the moment you could be here a while but it would be time well spent. Figure on spending roughly an hour or so. This will probably be your first stop so enjoy standing beneath the arches, it is awesome!!

From the parking lot pickup the well marked trail. Once you get going, head off to the right and go to the Turret arch. Once at the arch you can climb up a bit of the arch here and have some fun. Once done head back to the trail and make your way over to the north and south windows. If you are pressed for time head back the way you came. If you have the time, take the primitive loop around the back of the north and south windows. The trail is fine, but you will be making your way over some slick rock and a bit steeper grade on the trail. Also, since this is called a “primitive loop” this area will be quieter with fewer tourists.

Directions:

Make your way to Arches National Park. From the entrance station make a right at the first 3 way intersection (15 kms) and then head 4 kms to the windows section parking lot. If there isn’t any parking here you can try parking at the double arch parking lot, a short drive in front of you and then just walk back to here.
