Then there is a short loop that takes you out to some incredibly well preserved Ute petrogylphs.
Our second hike of the day was to Landscape Arch through the Devil's Garden Area. This is the second most popular hike in the park. This area was packed by 9 am. The hike is about 1.5 miles round trip. The trail is mostly packed gravel and extremely flat so this makes it all the more popular for tourists who want to see arches but aren't into hiking. If I hadn't really wanted to see this arch, I would have skipped this hike as it was really just a walk on a packed nature trail.
We drove off onto a dirt road to have a quick picnic out of the back of the car before heading off to check out a few of the shorter trails. Sand Dune Arch was a short walk and was great for kids as it is basically an arch with an enormous sand pit underneath it. It's like a big shaded sandbox.
