Utah and especially this area is awesome. very unusual landscape and views. Definitely would like to go back and take in more. It's been 5 years.

Watching the sunset here was magical. Very few people in the evening which was surprising. Seeing all the stars at night and hiking back was amazing. We even got a glimpse of the Milky Way

If you go to Arches and you aren’t just a tourist then GO DO THIS TRAIL!!!! We got to the visitors center right at 7:30am when it opened so we were the first people out on the trail and it was amazing. Maybe one of my favorite trails I’ve ever hiked. We got lost for almost an hour but just laughed to whole time because the scenery was too gorgeous to be upset. Please do yourself a favor and hike this trail!!!

spectacular!

Go at sunset and watch the sunset with the Corona Arch right in front of you!

great hike, doesn't feel very long, lots of steps!

great hike, people are balancing rocks which is annoying, but a good hike even with little kids

easy hike, go in morning to avoid the heat and bring 2 liters water

great hike, just don't do in the heat of the day. please note, no shade and not advisable for dogs in the heat. rock gets very hot. enjoy

We did this hike with Ranger Vicky (she is really brilliant) and the hike was amazing.

Crowded but epic

Sooooo many people....

Best arch in the national park! And the hike wasn’t as hard as some may say. Just make sure you start early enough to beat the heat and avoid crowds. We started at 7 am and that was the perfect time. I wouldn’t recommend starting this hike midday; it should honestly be closed around 11 am - 4 pm because that heat can be dangerous!

Completed over two days but hits most of the high points and you get a pretty good appreciation with this drive. Obviously you’d wanna do the longer hikes (devils garden) early on in the morning but you also wanna do the shorter ones early to avoid the crazy crowds because of how accessible those ones are so you have to decide

Keep going to (almost) the end to make sure to catch Sheep Rock and then check out the sign at the viewpoint, some cool info!

Fun trail with three distinct sections. Just be careful, sign at trailhead lists it as “1.5....one way.” Quickly read it and assumed it was mileage for out and back (like normal...). Was in for a slightly longer trip than planned. Lots of groups complaining about water very early on and resting in any shade they could find. Also lots of little kids with no water and barely any clothing/protection. Plan appropriately, it’s lots of sun and decent climbing for families.

Usually nothing but a 5-star rater because, nature. But the fence is so far back you can’t see any of the fins that make up the “furnace”.... maybe I missed them as others seem to have had better experiences but not a lot of reward here. I’m sure the furnace is beautiful, wherever it is.....

It’s a short trail over sand. I got stuck behind a family. The Pine Tree Arch off the same trail is probably better.

This is super short and easy. It’s at the bottom of the Delicate Arch trail.

The view point is amazing. If I didn’t have heat exhaustion the day before, I would have gone into the fiery furnace (it’s not actually hot).

This is an easy trail over sand and down a slope.

This is a short easy trail over sand and compacted dirt. There’s some scrambling (if you want) over rocks at the arch. It’s beautiful!

It’s beautiful! Make sure to stop at the different turnouts. It’s worth a little delay.

This is a moderately easy trail over sand mostly. There is some scrambling over rocks closer to the arch. There’s some decent shade.

This is a short steep trail where you can see the Delicate Arch in the distance.

This is a nice short trail with lots of shade. There’s a small gap (maybe 2 feet) that you have to squeeze through to get to the sand dune arch.

This was a good easy-to-moderate trail from the Park Avenue trailhead to the Courthouse Towers. I was there in 100 degree weather and I got heat exhaustion. I almost passed out on the trail. Even if I did, there were enough people around that I would have been okay. There’s next to no shade so bring lots of water and salty snacks.

I hiked this trail starting around 10am before it got too hot. It was pretty steep and I had to stop and catch my breath a few times. There were a lot of people in the same boat. The view from the arch was well worth the hike.

Very worthwhile walk to see delicate arch. It was super hot so wear a broad rimmed hat and bring plenty water. There are some shady areas under trees and rocks on the way up but it's 95% exposed. Terrain is varied and includes walking up a rock.... not a problem if it's dry. Great views at top. We took some time to enjoy view before returning down. We stopped by to see the petroglyphs.
