Filled with amazing views of Arches National Park and Klondike Bluffs this trail offers a very direct route from Crescent Junction to deep inside Arches National Park finishing just shy of Devil's Garden. Enjoy the desert views along the way with varied terrain and take special notice to how the ground colors change as you drive this trail.
From the Arches National Park main entrance drive all the way to the end of the park near Devil's Garden where you will find the trailhead gate about .85 mile on the left-hand side before Devil's Garden. If you have reached Devil's Garden you have gone too far.
Not a bad road and good way to get off the beaten path in arches but nothing to go out of the way for. They had warning about heavy rain, guess it wasn't raining enough today, never had any issues on the trail
Only ran half of this trail but it was nice. A lot of wildlife we came across. The camping area on the north end of the trail was really good. We found a nice sandy area next to the red rocks. We took this to tower arch/eye of the whale/willow springs.
We took this trail to the start of Tower Arch so only did a portion of it, but that portion was literally a dirt road so nothing exciting. BUT there is some awesome dispersed camping next to the rocks. Careful with pets as there is a lot of sticker bushes.
Great place to camp for free. Lots of dispersed spots and since it's BLM, you can really camp anywhere.
Watch out for deep ruts. There were a few hard-to-see ruts that were hub-deep with water (we measured it to be 18" deep at one point!). They are not well marked and if you're traveling at night, they are very difficult to see.
Camping was great, good views, good access to Arches without paying an entrance fee.
