Devil's Garden Trailhead

Devil's Garden (spa:Jardín del Diablo) is an area of Arches National Park, located near Moab, Utah,[1] that features a series of rock fins that have broken out of the earth due to erosion and produce many spectacular views. The Devil's Garden Trail that travels throughout Devil's Garden is just over 7 miles (11 km) long[2] and leads to the Tunnel Arch, Pine Tree Arch, Landscape Arch, Partition Arch, Navajo Arch, Double O Arch, Dark Angel monolith, Private Arch and Fin Canyon.[1] Wall Arch, before its collapse in 2008,[3] was also located here. Black Arch is visible as a dark outline[4] from the main trail and can be reached on an unmarked sidetrack.[5] The trailhead is at the end of the main road in Arches National Park.[1] A campground[6] and amphitheater are also available at the site.
