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.
