At the end of this hike you come to Morning Glory Natural Bridge. The arch is only separated from the cliff behind it by 15 feet, so it is not as spectacular or photogenic as some other arches in the area that are not as big. When you stand directly underneath the span 75 feet above you, it is a very impressive piece of rock. On the list it is ranked 5th largest span in the world.

On the low end of moderate as far as difficulty, some short inclines. took about 2 and 1/2 hours round trip.

Did not plan for the whole thing, but ended up going to the end. Really enjoyed going back and forth along the creek and sandy areas. There are shades and plants along the way, which made the trail cooler and all the more interesting. Reasonably well marked. A lot of people. It would be hard to get lost.

What an amazing trail! We got to go through all sorts of terrain and the dogs loved all the creek crossings. A good length and a comfortable, easy amount of challenge. So beautiful!

One of our fav hikes in Moab! A nice easy trail, enjoyed in the late afternoon after our morning spent at Island in the Sky. Very pleasant along the creek, about 10 or so creek crossings, and the first trail with some shade!

Best hike near arches so far. This is the one to do if it's really hot and full sun due to many stretches in the shade along the river. Good half day hike. Plan to sit awhile under Morning Glory Arch and enjoy the grandeur.

Pretty hike with a cool cove and Morning Glory Arch and the end. Kid and dog friendly. Good 2.5 to 3 hour hike.
