Ring Arch doesn't have an official trail to it, and is less visited compared to more famous arches like Delicate Arch or Landscape Arch. Accessing Ring Arch requires a bit of a hike and is a good adventure for those looking for less trodden paths within the park. This is a really nice outing to get away from the crowds. Though there is not an official trail, it has a very well-worn social trail, so navigation is fairly straightforward. The arch is quite stunning and there is a small rock art panel that can be visited as well.

Size: The dimensions of the Ring Arch are approximately 40 feet in height and 75 feet in width. In general, I think it photographs better in morning light.
