Starting at Devils Garden Trailhead, Partition Arch is one of the several incredible works of art nature created along the trail path.

Hiking to Partition Arch begins at Devils Garden Trailhead which is at the end of the 16 mile Arches Scenic Drive road. Make sure to get to the trailhead early for 2 reasons: beating crowds and beating the heat. Arriving at sunrise will almost guarantee you a parking spot. Budget 2-3 hours round trip for this hike, though it may go longer because there are several other incredible arches to see along the hiking trail. Picking up a trail map at the visitor center will help you navigate to Partition Arch as well as all the other arches along the way. The trail can sometimes become ambiguous so paying attention to the map and trail markers is essential.

Beautiful

Did this as part of Devil’s Garden loop, and it was beautiful. Made for some great pictures. We showed up before 8a, and had no trouble finding parking, but when we left several hours later, it was packed and there was quite a line to get into the place. It was very windy, so a hood on my jacket was nice, sunglasses a must, and I will take a bandana next time for the worst of the dust from wind gusts. One of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen.

Cool Arch

Great view of the valley from this arch. Be sure to hit up the other arches along the way to Partition. All of them are beautiful!

Lesser Crowded Arch

Great viewpoint to the canyon valley. Best done as part of Devils garden loop. Lots of wildlife and fairly accessible.
