This beautiful Entrada sandstone arch is located off a short side route along the famous Devils Garden Trail in Arches National Park. The views through Partition Arch are spectacular and look southeast over the northern stretches of the park and Cottonwood Wash. Its low profile allows you to get much closer to the arch than many of the others in the park. The short trail starts with a well marked sign after you ascend the large fin near Landscape Arch. You will be 0.9 miles before Double O Arch at this point. Everything is properly designated so you won't miss it. Check out nearby Navajo Arch while in the area; they are both smaller and more intimate than the mighty soaring arches you'll often find, and the side trails cut down on the crowds slightly.

There are decent wildflowers here in spring, and keep your eyes open for deer. Be careful for cryptobiotic soil when hiking in this area, and keep an eye on your sun exposure and hydration.
