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.

Hiked Oct. 23, birthday trip to Moab. We ended up doing 7 miles in this area, going in as far as Double O Arch before having a few snacks and travelling back. The first section of the trail is wide and casual, the primitive portion of the trail is still fairly easy to follow in good traction shoes. Right when the primitive section starts there will be a small scramble up a slickrock hill which is slightly narrow, be careful here letting others come down, as it will probably be pretty busy. There were lots of people visiting this trail due to how many arches you can see in a short distance, as well as just the fascinating structures of the Devils's Garden walls. The different arches are all very diverse and worth checking out. Our favorites were Double O, Landscape, and Pine Tree. Remember if you start getting disoriented, hunting for cairns will show you the right direction.

Primitive part gets challenging in winter with snow! Very beautiful view, definitely worth it though!

Best hike in Arches! I would not recommend sleeping in and then going at noon in the middle of July though. Hottest I have ever been!! Bring a map in case, we got a bit lost in the primitive part where there wasn't a cairn around.

Awesome trail. Very fun once you hit the Primitive Loop. Lots of nice little scrambles...class 2 mostly, maybe some short and easy class 3. Amazing views and just great fun in general. Lots of people on this hike. Bring some water and sunscreen for this one.

Love this hike. I've done it twice now. The first time I did primitive trail at the end. I definitely suggest doing primitive and then on to main trail.
