Skull Arch is a double arch located in the Fiery Furnace area of Arches National Park in Utah. The Fiery Furnace area is a limited access area of the park – go to my detailed article to see advice on the three basic ways of seeing it for yourself. The size of Skull Arch is not what makes it dramatic – the twin openings are only about 47 x 30 and 28 x 27, but the arch’s resemblance to a pair of eye sockets that gives it its name.

Skull Arch sits up on a cliff and glowers down at hikers with indifferent distain. While the view from the trail is pretty good, if you want to stand underneath it there will be a pretty good scramble.

Located nearby to Skull Arch in the Fiery Furnace is Surprise Arch and Walk Through Arch.
