Devils Garden Trail information

Lonely Planet review

At the end of the paved road, 19 miles from the visitor center, Devils Garden trailhead marks the beginning of a 2- to 7.7-mile round-trip hike that passes at least eight arches. Most people only go the relatively easy 1.3 miles to Landscape Arch , a gravity- defying 290ft-long behemoth. Further along the trail gets less crowded, and grows rougher and steeper toward Double O Arch and Dark Angel Spire . The optional, difficult Devils Garden Primitive Loop has narrow-ledge walking and serious slickrock hiking. Ask rangers about conditions before attempting.
