on Delicate Arch Trail

Great hike. Easy going at the start with a little challenge on the last leg due to ice and snow. Sand and groomed trail to start, changing to rock midway and then back to mixed sand and rock at the end. Short ledge section at the final part.
Wonderful views both of the arch and the surrounding valleys. Haven't hiked in a while so it was a longer trip than it might normally be. Very worth it, especially since we were the only people there at the time (mid January).

Parking lot was not super large, recommend getting there early. This was almost more of a scenic lookout than a hike. Took about 10 minutes to walk down and 10 to walk back. Lots of bathrooms which were pretty well maintained. Great stop during our long day drive.

Very easy walk. Beautiful Canyon views!

Nice view, super easy hike and was pretty empty early on this time of year.

Had to do this trail after seeing it in Lonely Planet’s Epic Hikes of the World. It was as stunning as promised. My only complaint was how busy the trail was .. and that was in January. It has to be ridiculous during peak season.

Happy to see this trail finally open! Very muddy, mostly from excessive foot traffic. Lots of incline. Doing the entire loop separates you from the crowd. Lots of dogs! There should be more signs posted about restoration and staying on the path.

We clocked about 11 miles and took a long lunch but generally 4 hours round trip is what you should expect.

Super easy trail.

Really nice hike with spectacular views of the canyon and little niches for meditation. I didn’t finish because I started too late in the day and it was getting dark, but I made it 4.3 miles round trip, so I probably was close. I hiked solo so I wasn’t planning on scrambling with the chain. Definitely would do it again and complete it.

Closed at the trailhead due to rockfall as of 1/19/2019.

Go early. Its a popular trail & it becomes too trafficked-especially when the park is in full swing

Pretty easy hike to see something that I have only seen in many photos. Very beautiful.

A good winter hike. only small patches of snow on the flat valley bottom portion of the trail. lots of hikers. Moderate hike easy walking but a good distance 17km from parking lot.

An incredible trail. The natural and man-made beauty along the way is insane, and the trail allows you to meet some very friendly locals and animals as well. If you do one hike in your lifetime, do this one. Simply amazing.

Good 3-4 hour loop with decent elevation.

This was the scariest thing I've ever done. I'm proud of myself for doing it because I'm terrified of heights but I won't ever do it again. We were appalled at the people hiking to the top with small children. Yes, it's beautiful but it's also dangerous. Be safe.

I hike this trail twice as a kid with girl scout camp. So beautiful! Time to go again

Amazing!! Me and my friends traveled in March 2018 and did this hike!! It is absolutely amazing! There was a lot of snow but the skies were cleared it was sunny and very nice. A bit slippery so if you are not very confortable with snow be careful. Bring food, a hot drink and gloves for sure!! We started the hike from the parking lot around 11:00am and by the time we were back it was about 5:00pm we spend a nice time at the cliff took some pictures and went back before sunset. A quick tip and an important one. Keep you eyes on the road always. Specially going down. The sun melts to top of the snow surfaces and it turns into ice. Sometimes “Black ice” on rocks which is hard to see. You can slip in a blink of an eye lol. Temperature was around 5C use light and warm enough clothes and bring an extra top just in case. Our food of choice was brown cheese, bread, chocolate and coffee. Anyways, have fun! And please! Respect the nature :)

Jonathan G,

The guides kinda just rush you through. The canyon is gorgeous but I didn't get to really take it in.

Beautiful, challenging, slippery, and a grind. Did it one year ago. I am in my 60s and trained. It was an excellent challenge, every step requires focus. You will be present or else.....

1/11/19 heavy ice on beginning of trailhead. do not attempt without crampons.

1/10/17 great scenary for sunset. quick and easy. parking can be limited. would recommend due to ice on other trails at Zion.

1/11/19 Incredible hike and views. Ice is present on the wiggles and from the first set of chains. It is possible to get past first set of chains without clamp one but would not recommend. very easy to slip.

This is a get your picture and leave type of hike. Compared to Corona and Bowtie, it was meh. The arch itself is awesome. The hike up is nothing special. At the top, you’re met with a whole bunch of people with little hiking ettiequte. People perched under the arch making it impossible to get a photo and groups of people talking and yelling.

An all around better option is Corona and Bowtie. The drive there is AWESOME! The hike is so freaking fun and the arch is just as spectacular.

You have to see Delicate arch when you come to Utah, but definitely don’t do this as your only arch hike!

Went up on New Years Eve, it had snowed about an inch the night before and everything was absolutely beautiful. The shuttle was running and we caught the second or third one out at 8:20. There were about 40 people hiking the switchbacks around us, but that number dropped to about 20 when we hit the chains because of the snow.

I would NOT go past the first short stretch of chain without micro spikes. Several portions were extremely slick, and the couple hiking ahead of us without spikes made me nervous. About 90% of people we saw that day had spikes on. Well worth the $20.

Took us almost exactly three hours total, from hopping off the shuttle to getting back to the stop. It was starting to get crowded as we came back down, which would have added a lot more time waiting for the narrow parts to clear up before passing.

The last half mile is a killer (I was NOT prepared, it was my first time hiking it). It took me almost two hours to get to the falls. Wear spikes and bring poles because it is slick. All in all I enjoyed it! I want to hike it in the summer, which I hear is harder because you don't have the snow to protect you from the rocky trail.

GREAT hike! Definitely need cramp-ons to do this safely right now. Absolutely stunning views, and not heavily trafficked at all. 10/10 would recommend.

Wow! (In Owen Wilson’s voice)
This trail was EPIC! Incredible views and 100% worth it! It was considered moderate for us. It took about 1 hour and 15 minutes to hike up and 40 minutes to go back down. It was a little Icy but nothing too crazy. Elevation gain was a little difficult at times, but doable. Definitely a must do! Unbelievable views at the arch!

It's a steep hike that offers really cool views of the Salt Lake Valley. Not one of my favourites as there's no waterfalls, rivers or lakes to look at. It is doable in winter and I enjoyed myself over all, but it is exhausting fighting all that snow and it delays you. Make sure you have more time than you think you need before sunset. It's dangerous with light-hearted sliding down the steep, slick trail.

Short and easy yet stunning and beautiful. Delicate arch, probably the most famous of all the arches and understandably so.
