Landscape Arch is one of the must-see arches in Arches National Park. At 306 ft long, Landscape Arch is one of (if not) the longest arches in the world. Its only 11 ft wide at the center, making a truly incredible expanse for being so thin. While Devil’s Garden feels out of the way, Landscape Arch is an iconic arch that is definitely worth the visit.

It’s 306 ft long and one of the longest arches in the World. Dang that’s big!

I’m not sure what it is about Utah’s red rock that makes me fall in love over and over again, but I’m in love with how beautiful it is no matter the time of day.
3. Family Friendly
Bring the kids on this hike! It’s easy and you can see up to 3 different arches including Landscape Arch.
Enter Arches National Park, this is a fee area. Once you’ve entered the park, take the main park road north about 18 miles to the Devil’s Garden parking area.
Starting from the trail head at the Devil’s Garden parking area, hike between the fins to Landscape Arch roughly 0.9 miles one way. Before heading out on the trail there is an area to refill water bottles and use the bathrooms. Re-filling your water is definitely worth the stop regardless of how far you are planning to hike. It’s easy to get dehydrated when hiking especially in the desert.
From the trail head enjoy the hard-packed trail to Landscape Arch. Depending on the time of year it may be possible to take a jogging type stroller over the trail. There are some small hills so there may be a few areas that will require quite a push, but we have seen people on the trail with them. At the end of the trail you see a fence and looking to your left is Landscape Arch.
Can’t get enough of checking out the arches in Arches National Park? Pine Tree and Tunnel arch are just off the main trail to Landscape Arch. An easy hike to check out 2 cool arches.
Pine Tree and Tunnel Arches can be accessed by side trails about 0.2 miles in from the trail head at Devil’s Garden. These trails are rougher than the main trail to Landscape Arch, but are still easy to complete. If you don’t have time to make it all the way to Landscape Arch these can be shorter options to check out more arches or combine all three for a great adventure!
At the trail junction, take the route left to Pine Tree Arch for 0.3 miles. Once you’re done enjoying Pine Tree Arch head back down the trail and over to Tunnel Arch, another 0.2 mi of hiking. From Tunnel Arch return to the trail head by hiking back the way you came for about 0.5 mi.
The route adds about 1.1 mi to your hike overall.
Why is this hike easy?
The trail from the parking area to Landscape Arch is fairly flat and the trail is hard packed. With some effort it may be possible to push a stroller all the way to Landscape Arch.
