Moderately easy hike, up to 6 easily reached arches, desert settings. This is a wonderful hike that allows you to see up to six named arches, any one of which would be worth the moderately easy 4 mile hike. The main trail is well maintained, and wide. The first spur trail takes you to Tunnel Arch and Pine Tree Arch. We were lucky enough to share Tunnel Arch with a small herd of grazing mule deer. Next the trail leads to Landscape Arch, which at 306' long is one of the largest natural spans in the world. After visiting Landscape Arch, you begin your only significant uphill climb of the trip. You will walk well below Wall Arch, then climb higher to spur trails to Navajo and Partition Arch. The later offering great views out over the desert. At this point we retraced the main trail back to the trailhead, but you could continue on for an additional 2 1/4 miles for views of Double Arch and Dark Angel.

Lots of variety, you can customize what you want to see OR what you think you can do as far as distance, I myself have only gone out to Double O Arch, but just doing that much of this hike was definitely 5 star worthy, all the arches are pretty decent other than Tunnel, not very photogenic. A must do if your at Arches NP, you just need to figure out how much of it you can & want to do

Great fun trail. Have to follow the cairns or lose the trail.

One of the best hikes I've ever done, so different from what we're used to hiking in CO. Be sure to do the back part of the trail that's listed as most difficult. And careful of the heat! Bring lots of water.

Excellent. Go during sunset and take head lamps for the hike out.

Devils' Garden early in the morning - great hike while temperature is still manageable and kids well rested. Nice hike with views, Landscape Arch and Double O well worth the effort. Some hiking and rock climbing, but even our 6yo did well. We also saw a snake on the trail!

Soooo beautiful!!!! Endless breathtaking canyon views and red rock formations! Hard hike. Several steep rock scrambles. Not for height averse. Very hot in mostly sun. We hiked in June 101 degrees and easily consumed 3 liters water. We were not used to the elevation being from the East Coast and moved very slowly to enjoy the views. Highly recommend !!!!!!

Great hike! Make sure you bring plenty of water - at least two liters per person. My brother and I didn't bring quite enough and we're still trying to re-hydrate days later!

We did this as an out and back to Double O Arch. It's a great trail that is well maintained and easy to follow. It was my girlfriend's first serious hike and she loved it. Landscape Arch is amazing, and it's worth you time to do the spurs to Navajo and Partition.

Awesome trail. This was my favorite trail in arches. SO MUCH TO SEE. If you do the whole trail it's over 7 miles, but totally worth it. Some parts are nerve racking if you are afraid of heights. If not be sure to wear your hiking shoes. After you pass Private Arch (if you do the hike clockwise) there are some sketchy parts that require nerve and good grip shoes. There was a family with children that had to turn around at this point. Also a woman who was experiencing some form of vertigo. Other than that this hike is a must. We took a ton of pictures and stopped many times. I believe we started around 11:30 and didn't get back to the car until 4.

This was an excellent hike. With all the extra dead end paths to the other arches it's actually 7.2 miles long. Lots of fun with a wide variety of terrain changes. I recommend going on a day that isn't so windy

Great hike with many beautiful arches along the way. Partition Arch was especially beautiful and secluded with amazing views. Sand was blowing into our eyes. If it is a windy day make sure to bring a pair of sunglasses or something to protect yourself.

Absolutely breathtaking a must see if you can do the full loop. The walk has some insane paths that take you on top of a rock formation that is 100s of feet high with only a 10' wide path! Careful with young kids or clumsy adults.
