A gentle climb up a gravel loop trail leads to three massive arches (North and South Windows and Turret Arch). An alternate return, slightly longer, is by way of the primitive loop around the back of the two Windows. The primitive loop trail starts at the South Window viewpoint.
This is the best place in the park for doing astro photography! Such a unique spot!
This was one of the easiest hikes on the 18 mile scenic drive, and well worth it! Couldn't wait to get to Arches National Park and see all the arches, and if youre not willing to do a 7 mile hike in Devil's Garden, this is for you. You won't be alone at all because there are tour buses and fellow hikers, climbers, etc visiting too; but there are moments when it will be just you and a handful of others, and the calm is priceless.
Besides being a great location for night photography in Arches National Park, Turret Arch also makes a good sunrise location, glowing orange from the rising sun. It's part of my recommended one-day tour of Arches in this beautiful national park near Moab, Utah.
