Arches National Park Landscape Arch

Landscape Arch

Landscape Arch is an arc natural arch eroded in Entrada sandstone. On September 1, 1991, a 73-foot slab of rock fell out from underneath the thinnest section of the span. On June 5, 1995, a 47-foot mass of rock fell from the front of the thinnest section of the arch, followed by another 30-foot rock fall on June 21. Due to these events the Park Service has closed the loop trail that once led underneath the arch.

The Landscape Arch Trail

Park at Devils Garden trailhead. The trail is a relatively flat, gravel-surfaced trail leads to a spectacular ribbon of rock, whose span is more than a football field in length. Some steep slopes may be accessible to wheelchairs with assistance. Short side trips to Tunnel and Pine Tree arches. After Landscape Arch, the Devils Garden trail becomes difficult, with rock scrambling, narrow ledges, and exposure to heights.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
