This is a relatively short hike, which makes it great for families, dogs, people who don't like to hike, etc. There are a couple tricky spots (ladder and wires assist), but other than that this is a quick hike with a spectacular arch at the end. We hiked on a 55 degree sunny day and I can't imagine hiking much warmer than that. It was perfect!
This hike is wonderful. It isn't that hard, though it can get pretty hot. I suggest doing it early in the day, there is no cover the whole way up. This is my favorite arch in the area even though it is not actually in the Arches national Park. It is pretty impressive sitting under this giant.
Steep slick rock. Couldn't get to Arch this time because Emma (older Yellow lab) couldn't make it up the rocks.
Nice arches you can take your dog to. Tons of people.

Fun hike with kids.
Loved it. Great scenery, interesting climb and a perfect distance. Good for all ages. One short section of steep climbing, with cable to assist.
We really enjoyed this hike and if time permitted would have done the side trip. HOWEVER...I would seriously be concerned about taking any big dog past the point of the second safety cable up the "steps". The ladder that follows would also be dicey...especially going down it. We did see a big lab make it up to the arch but we wonder if some of the "locals" know a reasonable alternate route.
Loved this hike, even though it was pretty easy! Best one we've done in Moab this far! Bonus- we were the only ones on the trail yesterday eve!
Great easy hike.
Great half day hike. The few tough spots have cables or a ladder. Full sun exposure except under the arch itself which is a great place to rest and enjoy for a spell. Trails goes on a bit past the arch but canyon is a dead end.
