Not many tourists take this hike out to Broken Arch. In fact, we hadn't considered it until it was recommended at the Moab Information Center. It turned out to be an excellent recommendation!

This hike is 2 miles return trip and should only take an hour. The trailhead is located in the Devil's Garden campground, across from campsite #40.

The arch is not actually broken but has what appears to be a crack in the center of it, you can see the crack in my photo. We are assured that there is no imminent danger of the arch falling and the path will take you right through the arch to the other side. There are great views up here as well.
