Great scenic views. Some technical challenges. Trail is poorly marked and connects with some other trails which are also poorly marked. Trail can be a great day outing if you don't mind getting lost and finding your way back.

The pictographs are awesome

This is a cool little stop on either the way to or back from Delicate Arch. Nice petroglyphs and cool Pioneer cabin

I would say this is a touch up from moderate... Pretty technical... Dirtbike, RZR800, + 2 quads...

Some solid crawling involved.... Great skills tester.

Will be back

This is hardly a trail in its own right. We hiked it in conjunction with the Delicate Arch trail, making it a nice "cool-down" walk to some well-preserved petroglyphs. Wolfe Ranch is just a few yards from the parking lot and is comprised of a couple clay brick huts and a small livestock arena.

Like most of Arches NP this trail is very very crowded. Much of the trail is blocked by families trying to take pictures and scowl if you try to walk by them. While the views are great its hard to rate any higher due to the sheer number of people.

Simple hike most any should be capable of doing. Pectrographs well preserved. Wolfe homestead is amazing. To live in that dugout and then to move to the still simple cabin. Rough pioneer life.

Good place to drive in to and look at some petroglyphs. Not a hike tho. Its sectioned off so you can only walk around so much.

Crowded due to the traffic from Delicate Arch Trail. Check it out while you're heading to the arch.

Sego Canyon is a great place to stop as you tour Utah's national parks. The paintings on the canyon wall are particularly interesting, so I'd recommend reading a little about them before going. We did not spend a lot of time here, but did get out of the car to look at the paintings.

Except for a couple of tough spots, this trail would be rated easy. The movie "Blue" was filmed here.

This area is on the eastern side of Arches NP. The road to Lost Spring is somewhat confusing, and it's easy to get off track.

Sego Canyon is off Interstate 70 exit 187. The first part is a narrow paved road. The road splits; the right hand road goes to the ghost town of Sego.

Mineral Bottom is accesed via Mineral Bottom Road, (sometimes called Horse Thief Trail). The trail is well maintained and is rated as easy. It is about 13 miles to the switchbacks that lead you down to the White Rim Trail and the Green River. The switchbacks are scenic and very easy as you decend about 500' to the bottom. Once on the bottom, turning right will lead you to dead ended Mineral Bottom, where rafting boats are launched. If you turn left you are on the White Rim Trail. We took the left and proceeded to Taylor Canyon to explore the spires of Moses and Zeus. A nice day Jeeping.
