Canyon Land - Arches NP Map

It was a easy fan trail, and incredible view all around.

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

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

the two miles to the end are longer than it'd seem. took about 2 hours, but beautiful trail. the beginning has the best views

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

The best views in Island in the Sky, along with the White Rim overlook, and a very easy trail. Would definitely recommend.

This arch is a sunrise must. Get there earlier than 15 minutes before sunrise though because there were a wall of people setup with tripods hogging the entire photograph viewpoints at that time already. If not for the surprising amount of people I would’ve gave 5. Popular spot, so come early if you want a parking spot.

It’s stunning!

I hiked part of this trail along the edge of the cliff. It’s beautiful and fairly easy. There’s just stairs every now and then.

This has made its way to one of my favorite hiking trails. This is a moderate hike that includes navigating rocks, some climbing and crossing the creek several times (and sometimes there weren’t rocks to walk across so wear good hiking boots). I hiked alone but saw about a dozen people during the entire hike. There are some small signs and cairns along the trail to help keep you on course which I was thankful for at times. The arch and natural waterfall forcing its way between two rock faces was worth it at the end.

An ok and pretty straightforward hike. Go to the second overlook, which provides slightly better views of the features. Kind of cool that the history behind the creation of the features is still being discovered. Overall though, happy enough to have hiked it once, would likely not do it again.

Really nice short and easy hike to cap off my time at Canyonlands. Did it towards the end of the day when the sun was setting, which really made the experience!

You can see many huge steps on the land. That is amazing.

The scene you can look through the arch likes that in another planet!

A must do hike. We didn’t realize the green splotches on the ground were there to guide us so we did a lot of extra hiking. We went at 4:00 pm the last day of July so it was pretty hot and miserable until we made it to the other side of the mountain where you can view the arch from. Even in the terrible heat all four of our young kids were able to make it. They really enjoyed pulling themselves up the ladder and rope areas.

What an incredible hike! I did it alone after consulting with some Utah friends. Right when you think you might be lost, there are green paint splotches on the rocks guiding you all the way to the Arch. Start early as there is no shade. Also wear good hiking shoes. So worth it!

Great trail! It's listed as 4.3 miles, but my recording was 5.1 miles. The views into the canyon are beautiful, and the natural bridge at the end of the canyon is awesome!

Excellent trail, we liked the view much better than the Grand Canyon.

Follow the green dot road! (Sung to the tune in wizard of oz!) bring lots of water if hiking mid day. Fun hike.

mostly soft sand, trail is signed and pretty easy to follow, flowing water even in late July and lots of vegetation....make sure you know what poison ivy looks like and you shouldn't have a problem avoiding it

Very short hike, but crowded. I came in early May and there was still quite a crowd.

Nice, short walk from parking for a viewpoint.

Easy to do! we did it with a baby, and it was perfect. Great early morning or evening hike.

The views are gorgeous on this hike. seeing Corona Arch for the first time was breathtaking. Nice easy hike for most. Might be a little challenging for young kids. There part of the hike you have to scramble for about 15ft. The hike took me about 20 min one way.

Great Outlool

Great trail with an amazing resting spot at the end. Took our 9 year old, lab and 22 month old on our back. Better to do this hike in the morning due to the heat. Our pooch had a hard time with her paws getting too hot. Plenty of areas to cool off as there is water all along the route. Even found a nice pool about 2 feet deep to play in. Perfect family hike!
