So my 19 year-old boys did this and loved it, calling it their most challenging (more than the Mist up to Vernal Falls at Yosemite). We’re fairly novice hikers, so my wife and daughter took the back route up to the Beehive Summit to meet them. Together, we then went to the beautiful Bowl and then descended. 2 hours and ten minutes.

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!

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

I always enjoy this hike! A challenge for someone afraid of heights for sure but so so rewarding. Please be wary if you are very afraid of heights or unsteady on your feet. Also make sure to wear shoes with great traction - you're going to need it. Awesome!!!

Not long but pay attention, as it is challenging with many metal rungs and hand holds

Amazing beautiful...another tick on my bucket list

Only down fall was sooo many people. It would be nice if they took a pic in the arch and let some one else take some.

A special arch

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.

Excellent views and playful environment! Make sure to wear hiking boots to protect those ankles and ensure solid contact on rocks, as it’s so much fun rock jumping

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!

I’ve never felt so accomplished as when I reached the Beehive Summit. Beware if you are afraid of heights. You will have to climb on iron rungs up the face at various times but the descent is pleasant. Swing by the Bowl after. It’s worth it.

Very fun hike with my wife and two kids (ages 11 and 9). My entire family is in better shape then I and we still had an amazing time. We stopped a few times to let faster people go ahead of us (but honestly I was using these times to catch my breath)...great short hike that gets the ticker really pumping...views and smiles on family’s face was completely worth it let alone the spectacular views

Fun did with wife first timed, then second climb was with son, wife and myself. Was first trip to Arcadia. Was not disappointed. Had a blast and was exciting and felt huge sense of accomplishment as we reached summit and took in breathtaking views of sandy beach and ocean!!!

This might well be the most beautiful view I have ever seen. If you can walk up an incline, hike this trail before you die.

Great trail, very busy as some spots we had to wait because of congestion

Just got done hiking the full loop at 2pm. This was such a beautiful hike! We came prepared with 2L + of water and snap towels to keep us cool and snacks. Even though it was in the middle of the day, we were prepared and we loved it!

The trail was marked with Cairns and very easy to follow.

Fun and unique hike with the rungs and climbing. Our whole family completed it including 9 and 11 year old children. Be brave if you are afraid of heights.

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

Korte wandeling vanaf de parkeerplaats, erg de moeite waard om ze van dichtbij te bekijken

Really fun trail. Both my girlfriend and I are in really good shape and not afraid of heights so it wasn’t that bad. We both wore sneakers and had no issues. The hike is really rewarding and I would recommend it to people who love to hike and see great views. There are several different options to make the hike longer or shorter (1.3 miles-11.8) so you can customize it to fit the difficulty and length you want.

Hiked with my family today and we all loved the hike. Boys are in HS and College and while we saw some young kids hiking, I would be thoughtful about taking them if they are less than agile, not active or afraid of heights. Otherwise it is manageable if you approach each challenging climb with respect and caution. Take your time and enjoy the views.

Quick Sunday afternoon hike with the fam = fab trail + stellar views + quality time with the crew

Beautiful trail with fun and thrilling heights! My family and I enjoyed hiking up this with exciting views, rings to climb, and many rocks with lots of variety!

great hike, with even greater views. the cliffs were a little scary but overall very well done.

What a fun trail! Once you get to the top of Beehive you have great views of Acadia, the Bowl, and the ocean. Continue down to the Bowl for a nice lake view. Then the hike on the way back down is very easy over well built staircases.

Although steep at the beginning, I found this trail to be approachable. Bring grippy shoes though, for the iron bars and rocks.

Best view of Yosemite falls in the park IMO

Great trail with my 14, 12, & 10 year old. Some parts were slippery because it had rained earlier, but still very doable for all ages.

did the entire loop and the overlooks and it was 6 miles. except for the over looks I saw 2 other people, this was a very isolated hike. the beauty was stunning! so worth it if you are on fence. took 3 hours, bring a gallon of water, not much shade but there is more on the west rim side. I saw 2 very large black ear jack rabbits close by on the west side. they did run away but I was able to watch them for 200 ft, beautiful!

Not a physically challenging hike, but a mentally challenging one. The vertical climb is less than 20 minutes but your head can play tricks on you. My wife, who is extremely fit and an excellent hiker, panicked to the point of tears. But she made it and was happy she did it. Hike up, not down. Down climbing is far more difficult. This hike can be looped in to many other hikes. Don't let the short distance put you off. You can conbine other trails to make this 10+ miles.
