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.

Amazing

One, not what i thought it would be. Two don’t go in august, barely seeping water.

Very beautiful. I saw stars here at night, but it's really hard to find the way in the dark.

A small cave and a small waterfall. Interesting but not must go.

A must see in arches and Moab. Take plenty of water. Very hot and busy with people all day long. The hustle and bustle of all the people almost makes it more exciting in this case though. Not as negative as when I see lots of people on other trails I do.

Totally worth it! Bring 2 liter of water with you in the hot summer.

Gorgeous trail. It takes you down, so you can walk among the hoodoos.

Not really worth the hike in the summer...there was a trickle though. The mossy cave was still mossy. The best part was dipping our feet in the cold water.

Nice trail!

Delicate Arch was amazing to view and it was definitely worth the hike! Bring a lot of water and make sure you look at the other scenery on the way up and down. It’s breathtaking.

Definitely go as early as you can, the crowds are insane. Arrived at the park at 8am, left about 10:30. It’s a beautiful uphill climb to the arch, with little shade. At 8am in early August the heat wasn’t bad, but definitely bring water. There’s a line of people waiting to pose in the arch, so it’s near impossible to get a snap of it without some strangers, but still worth seeing.

Awesome trail beautiful views and not to bad of a hike

Bring lots of water! I did it in the middle of the day in 100+ heat but it was definitely worth it. It’s either up or down.. you barely get flat land while on this trail. I did it in my Chacos and they were the perfect shoe for this hike. The scenery up the entire trail is beautiful. But there is little to no shade so don’t forget water!!’n

This short hike is more than worth it for the amazing view of the arch! The other views from the lower parking lot don’t even come close. There is a bit of climb that might be challenging if you aren’t physically fit and it can be very hot in the summer, but bring water and take your time. Totally worth view at the end!

Go as early in the morning as possible to avoid the heat in midsummer. Watching the morning light fill the canyon is a treat.

Beautiful hike! Did it with my 60 year old mother in about an hour and 15 minutes. Absolutely stunning.

I hiked this trail in October 2017, it didn't seem like it would be a tough hike since it was fairly short so I had to do it. It was a lot harder than I expected but that had more to do with the fact that I had surgery on both knees less than 5 months prior, had just stopped smoking about 8 months prior and it was the middle of the day. It took me over an hour to reach the top but it was well worth it. I might recommend doing it early in the morning, wear a hat, and take plenty of sunscreen and water, there is no shade.

We began around 7:30 am, and were able to park at Fairyland Point. This was an ideal starting point because it broke up some of the more intense climbing, and also provided us an opportunity to pause at the General Store 2.5 miles into the loop traveling counter-clockwise. We chose counter-clockwise based on recommendations we read here and that is sound advice! Starting early as we did, we were able to watch the sunrise as we worked the Rim trail portion of the Loop, and it is truly other-worldly! Spectacular views of the hoodoos and canyons on one side, forests and what almost feels like plains on the right for several miles before you descend into the canyon. Though the trail is rated 'hard', it was our experience as women of varied average to above average levels of fitness within our trio, that the most difficult section was mile 6.5-8 but was otherwise very accessible. Be ready for that serious climb in full sun around mile 6! Also, even subtracting our .25 side trip to the General Store, we felt this trail was longer than the 7.4 miles listed. We were able to complete the full loop, including the General Store break, in just over 4 hours. There was also a small stretch around mile 5-6 where you will experience drop-offs on both sides of the trail, nothing razor thin like an Angel's Landing, but if heights are a problem for you, I'm not suggesting you avoid it, but be ready to do some mental work and power stepping for about twenty feet!

Go early! We got there at 7:00 am. Uphill to the arch but worth it! Bring water if you are going in summer.

Awesome!

Easy trail for small children. Approximately one mile round trip. The waterfall is worth it.

The trail to the waterfall is not actually closed: there are two « closed » signs, but on the older versions of the trail that got eroded. There is a new one with a tiny wooden bridge on the left of the older ones. That said, be careful, erosion is still at work, and the new trail will be closed one day too...

Amazing views for a short hike! Took us less than an hour, but we did break a sweat on the way up.

If you hike counter-clockwise from Sunset Point, you will begin by descending into the amphitheater. Once in the amphitheater the trail is mostly gentle slopes and is well defined, though rough at times. Depending on the season, there are several places you may need to ford moving water. You can take a brief detour to the Tower Bridge formation if you like. Eventually you will find yourself on a moderate-strenuous climb to Fairyland Point on the rim, and will continue on the Rim Trail, which is mostly gentle but has a couple more moderate-strenuous climbs and then descents. The views are spectacular! You get up close and personal with beautiful hoodoos and the most incredible vistas you could ask for!

Stunning views from all sides when you get to the arch. I have a bum knee and was still completely fine on this hike. Took us a little less than two hours round trip with a 30-40 min stop at the arch.
