Short, easy, and fun hike. The best view is climbing on top! It was amazing!

Beautiful arch and also if you go up some more there is a small cliff, a little dangerous for kids as there is no rails on that cliff. It is less than a mile walk and not bad at all.

A fantastic, family friendly short trail for first timers with a decent pay off at the end. The views around the arch are awesome, be careful on top of the arch, it is a bit slanted to the side

I have done this trail at least a dozen times with elderly, obese, young children and first timers. It is the best in fall when the wind is up, as it really does whistle. It is worth going a bit past the small arch and climbing up the rock ledges to see the view from up there. Be very careful doing this.

Really fun climbing the arch

Great little hike. Family friendly.
Also great views.

Possibly my favorite hike we did here. If you go past the arch on the left there is a place where the rock drops off and the view is spectacular! We were amazed! Watch your dogs and kids. Highly recommend this trail!!

Amazing views from the edge of the mountain! The road driving up there is TERRIBLE though. Took us 20 minutes to drive the 5 miles up there but once you get there can do this hike plus Chimney Top also. Worth the trip for sure! Best part for us wasn’t the Princess Arch but the views from the hike around it. Loved it!

Nice scenery and trails were good

Very short trail, the views may not be as good as Chimney Top but the trails offers more to do which makes it slightly more enjoyable than Chimney Top.

Loved. Pretty short. Mile total maybe. Easy hike. Views are beautiful. No one else way out there. Can sit and take it for awhile. This would be very easy to get people out to see the views if they aren’t able to hike inclined trails.

Great trail, can be crowded. A little more difficult than Chimney Top. Go past the arch and keep going for a quieter experience where you can relax a bit.

Fun trail! The best part is the overlooks just past the arch. Worth going a little further to check it out! Path is easy and in the spring/ early summer there's blueberries. :)

Trees and debris are move to the side now.

The main trail which sort of paved takes you to top of the arch so go around and follow diamond path and you will end up underneath the arch.

Arches are beautiful but hate that people have to write on them

Short & Easy. Family Friendly. Possible scramble to get on top of the Arch, I was not that brave, rope might help.

Nice spot, very quick. If you go further past Princess Arch there is a great spot for views. For how short it is and how much there is to see, you can't beat it. Right next to Chimney Rock also which is a must for great views

Easy walking trail with the reward of a picturesque arch at the end
