Devils Garden

The Devils Garden is the furthest point in the park that you can reach by car.  There is a small loop with a carpark for the Devils Garden trailhed.  You can refill your water bottles here before the hike.  There are only two other places in the park which provide drinking water - the Visitor's centre at the entrance to the park and Devils Garden Campground not far away from the trailhead.  

 

The Devils Garden trail is 11.6km round trip and is better done early in the morning when the temperatures are quite comfortable, especially during summer.  

 

Landscape Arch

The best known arch on this trailhead is the Landscape Arch which is the longest arch in the park measuring around 100m from base to base.  In 1991, a massive slab of rock fell from its underside and it's just a matter of time before it collapses completely.  The hike to the arch is quite easy and the best results for photography are just a few minutes after sunrise.

The hike will get quite strenuous once you pass the Landscape Arch.  There is a primitive trail so you need to keep an eye on the barely visible markers.  There are many arches to be seen on this trail.

The only campground in the park is the Devils Garden Campground with 52 individual sites and 2 group sites.  There are no showers in the camp.  It is a good base for either Devil's Garden hike or any of the other small hikes around the camp.  The most popular is the trailhead to the Sand Dune Arch, with the Broken Arch located halfway through the trail.
