Arches National Park  photo spots

Arches National Park  has over 2,000 natural stone arches, hundreds of stone pinnacles rising into the sky, immense rock fins, and large balanced rocks.

We live close to Arches National Park so we’re able to visit often and know the best times of day to take photos at each location.

43-miles long, including the spur roads. Plan 2 to 3 hours for the drive.

Courthouse Towers

The Courthouse Towers area has unique rock formations to photograph: Three Gossips, Sheep Rock, and The Organ.

Balanced rock

We recommend walking around the .3 mile loop around this landmark to capture the rock at various angles and perspectives.

Iconic Delicate Arch is a top Arches National Park photo spot.

Delicate Arch

landscape arch

To see Landscape Arch you’ll need to hike 1.6 miles along the Devil’s Garden Trail. 

At the Windows area you’ll find the North and South Windows, also known as the Spectacles.

The Windows

With a bit of precarious scrambling, Turret Arch can seen through the North Window, making it one of the best spots for sunrise at Arches National Park.

Double Arch

This is a complicated formation that has lighting issues most of the day. Work with the shadows, foreground and scale to capture the arches the best you can.

Sand Dune Arch

When it’s hot, Sand Dune Arch is one place that usually has an area to provide shade, cool sand and fun for kids.
