Once you have the pamphlet the trail is very easy to find. Recommend doing this hike for sunset, it was beautiful and not a very large crowd. Will need some flashlights for the route back as it can be easy to lose the trail.

I won’t call this a hike, more like a quick trail to view these stunning arches! Perfect place to start and be sure to head over to Windows.

What a sunset spot! You have to check out this arch close up it is really something. Walk isn’t too tough and trail is easy to follow with trail markers along the way. Toke us about 40 minutes to the top and 30 mins on way down. Was pretty busy even in mid November but a most do if in arches. Plenty of parking and toilets at the trailhead.

One of the most popular hikes in the park and there is a reason. It’s a pretty high elevation gain over the 1.5 miles so take your time as you are going up. Plenty of places to stop and rest along the way. Once you are almost to the top there is a pretty small ledge that you walk around so those with heights might have some issues. Once you make it it is all worth it. The view is amazing and it is as spectacular as all the pictures you see of it. Make sure you take water and headlamps if there is any chance you are coming down in the dark. Kids loved it!

Less of a “hike” and more of a quick and easy way to get an up close look at three arches.

Hiked this trail in September to see the sunrise. It was one of the most spectacular places to hike! Would rate it as a moderate one, however we got to the parking lot at 6:40 and wanted make it to the top until the sunrise, so we had to do it really fast. It took us about 20 minutes in a very fast pace, which made hike quite difficult. If you are in no rush, then it can be very enjoyable experience. Would recommend doing it before sunrise because, first - it is not crowded and second - not hot at all. We were coming down around 9 am and it was already very hot, a lot of people just turned around on half way because of that and all that was in end of September.

Very pretty rock formations. Flat walk/hike mostly on pavement.

It long hike but wrath it amazing look step is different not go with stoker please walk is fine but be peasant you cane make we love it going is little bet change but back it good must go

Beautiful sunset and night photography opportunities. You can walk behind the arch and then to a lower level to avoid a lot of the tourists.

Some steep inclines on the final stretch but worth it. We did it with kids 3, 6 and 8, and they enjoyed the trail

Beautiful hike. Challenging, but a lot of fun. The view up top is worth the fierce incline on the way up.

Probably the best hike (this and the loop in the north part with several arches). This is a clasic and a must-hike./walk

This was a good, well trafficked hike. We completed this hike in early August and it was very hot. Make sure to bring plenty of water.

If you are an avid hiker, this is not very exciting.

Must do easy hike for anyone, iconic. Great for kids (our 2 year old had no issues). If going for the “window turret photo” just know there is a bit of a scramble involved (see pics).

Absolutely amazing views from the arch! Take plenty of water. It was cloudy and 55 degrees and I still went through two bottles. I went early in the morning and was at the arch by 9. There were tons of people heading up on my way back down, so I recommend going early. Well worth the hike. This one is a must do!

This trail gave me a tour of complete garden of the gods area. The landscape is so beautiful I can't explain in words.. Must do for everyone. Loved it.

The most amazing place we visited at arches. It's awe-inspiring to be nestled under the huge double arches. There's some not-too-steep rock climbing that our kids loved.

We went with our young kids in 65-70 degree weather. Perfect! The trail is awesome, with some parts like they were lifted from the set of an old western. Before going, we had our kids practice walking single file along an imaginary cliff edge. I'm glad we did for the last stretch by the drop off, because our usually rambunctious kids were well-behaved. The arch is amazing to see, but it's not the most kid-friendly point with drop offs all around. We stayed for about two minutes then turned back.

We went at sunset, and that might be overrated. I'm not sure it was different than any other time of day.

Great at dawn on a cold morning. Very inspiring place and a sure way to gain a love for this landscape!

Group of fairly fit 60-somethings made it up no problem. Great scenery on the way as well as the top. Lots of friendly weekend folks. Just one of multiple trails in Arches Nat’l Park.

This was a pretty cool hike. Good views and a decent workout. I was able to finish it in a little over an hour. Take time to pick up the map for the “tour”. I did not, but if I did, I would have spent much more time here.

Nice, moderate hike with huge pay-off. This is one of the most popular hikes in the park, but the trail is generally so wide that it didn’t really feel crowded until we got up to the area around there arch. Even then, we were all able to get solo pictures with the arch without much waiting. Went in the fall right at golden hour, the lighting was beautiful and the arch is really special.

Hiked with my 9 months old on my back and 6 years old boy last weekend . Awesome...
