Skyline Arch can be seen from the road which is why many hikers skip over this one and go do Devils Garden or Delicate Arch trails instead. I still think this is great to see up close. Or if you are short on time and you should do this hike.
There are really no signs or directions. The dirt path leads directly underneath Skyline Arch but you won’t be able to hike up to it unless you come from behind it.
The trail is easy and it is about .22 miles to the arch itself. I have seen people hike up from the Devils Garden campground which is located just behind the arch. Sometimes you can see people walking under the arch. If you want to do this, go around to the campground and hike up from there.
Head back towards your car the same way you came up.
This is a fun easy hike that anyone would enjoy. It doesn’t take much time so if you haven’t already seen it I would recommend you stop then next time you are in Arches National Park.
