Great hike with spectacular views at the end. This was one of the easiest hikes we did in the Big 5, there is an uphill section and a few large steps up but very accessible. I would consider this an easy hike or a moderate walk.

I'm fat and out of shape... thought I was going to have a heart attack... but, I DIDN'T! I made it to the arch! My husband had both knees replaced 13 months ago and HE made it too!

Great hike. Not that many people for it being Spring Break so a lot of the trail was just myself and the kids. Feels like being on another planet.

My favorite place in Arches

Great hike! Lots of snow and ice, so definitely need micro spikes.

If you want to enjoy the sunset in a quiet place, you have to try it.

Short but steep. Beautiful view.

Great views of the city!

Easy hike. Shouldn't miss it.

This is a must do! Experience hiking and rock climbing does help. Bring a rope/strap just in case and plenty of water. I don't recommend going alone. Best route is up Peek-a-boo and then down Spooky. If you have time take a stroll up Dry Fork to see the varied rocks and for the solitude.

Great city view, try it night time...

Words don’t do it justice. Amazing!

Hiked this trail as part of the Figure 8 trail (7-mile) in the Park brochure. We hiked in March so there was still plenty of ice, snow and later in the morning mud on the ground We generally hike about 2.5-miles per hour but the scenery on this trail will slow you up for the photos. Although I would regard this trail as moderate the climb back up to the top past two bridges (Wall street side of Navajo is closed in the winter) is a little strenuous and will raise the heart rate. We did not need micro-spikes like on the peekaboo side of the figure 8

Hiked 02/21/18. I checked the weather conditions prior to starting by visiting the Escalante Interagency visitor center (I called the number multiple times but no one answered so keep that in mind if that happens to you). The ladies there informed me that there was a large ice cold water puddle right in front of the Peek a boo entrance. they stated that since there is water there, there is most likely water within the a lot canyon as well. My bf and I wanted to try anyways... so we took the chance and headed out on the drive. It's an hour drive to the entrance. We had. four wheel large car so we were able to get close to the starting point. LOAD ALL TRAILS MAP BED
FORE LOSING SIGNAL. This saved our butt from not getting lost. Anyways, we started with Peek-a-boo based on reviews on here. Sure enough there was a huge 12x13 water puddle that was shin deep in front of the 12ft steep rock we had to climb. My bf went first and we rough rope so he was able to lift me up with the rope. I have leg strength but zero upper body strength. He is 27yo male and i am 26yo female. So bring rope just in case!! I couldn't have climbed that without help. We took our shoes off to get through the water and yes it was cold but worth it! there were only two other small water puddles in the canyon after that. the rest of the hike was great. lots of fun, problem solving and pictures taken. Definitely do this hike- it's so fun!'

Hiked 02/20/18. Really pretty hike. There was a lot of snow on the trail and it was pretty chilly so make sure to bundle up this time of year & where proper hiking shoes!

Absolutely stunning. This is a bucket-list worthy hike. Can’t believe it took me so long to get here when it’s so close to home. Really windy today, no longer any snow/ice along the trail.

Great trail that offers a variety of views. In the winter (I completed this hike in December), the Wall Street side of Navajo Loop is closed by the park, so I finished the loop on the Two Bridges side. I was sad to not see Wall Street, but was not at all disappointed by the Two Bridges side. This hike was not too difficult and worth every second.

Went January 2018. Easy, fun, bring spikes as there is a small patch of ice.

Took a weekend trip to Moab to escape busy college life. Planned the roadtrip so that we could get here right at sunset and we couldn't have timed it better! Got there with about 10min before the sun was below the horizon, but still had time for some amazing views. Lost my camera lens cover down the gully, but my friend scooted down to get it back for me. Temperature was perfect, and distance was ideal. Definitely recommend a sunrise/sunset time to avoid the crowds!

If it wasn’t windy we would’ve stayed all day!

It's like a ceremonial procession going through raised areas and terraces. The last access passway gives a certain experience of surprise as you approach boarding the rocky walls to the high point where the arch is. Viewing the forms you can imagine the naturalistic forces, winds and water, which shaped the landscape in a formidable "style."
But if it's a windy day as today was you should know that you will be straining particularly your muscles and the gusts will strike your face with sand. This could be taken by many people as a part of the adventure. But it's highly rewarded to come and see this marvel surrounded by a concave harmonic space. The senses of abbys and height, of closure and openness are almost architectural.

Just happened to be there in a day that wind gusts of over 20mph. It didn’t seem to stop anyone from going. Beautiful views, courteous hikers.

Great day hike takes about 4-4.5 hours to complete. Rough 8 miles but well worth the gorgeous hoodoos.

Go earliest in the morning as possible! 1) to get parking 2) to avoid the mass crowds of tourists and 3) to avoid the scorching sun - if going in early summer, it can be 90 degrees already by 10am. Very beautiful, a good hike, but too many people. Don't forget your water, don't forget to check out the petroglyphs, and don't be afraid to explore a little more off the path. Worth seeing once to say you've been there ;)

A most beautiful view from every angle

Go early (0800ish) and avoid the mass waves of people! Very easy hike. Great finish at the end. I ended up enjoying this much more than I thought I would.

Beautiful hike! Very muddy/slushy/icy/snowy trail especially on the Navajo Loop side...but still hikeable! All three of my boys did the whole thing (10, 6, almost 3). Amazing views every step of the way! Great way to see Bryce!

Good short hike! Only took me around 35 minutes and I’m a beginner. A little steep on the way up but worth the view!

Did this hike with wife and 5 children, and it was awesome! It is now the standard by which I will be judging future hikes of similar length. The terrain was varied and interesting, wildlife plentiful, scenery beautiful, and of course the big reveal at the end of the hike is as rewarding as any hike I have been on. The feeling of coming around the corner and seeing the size and grandeur and marvel of nature that is Delicate Arch was inspiring! It made my hair stand up on my arms and neck. I hope to make this a family tradition. I was nervous to take my five year old, and other children who love to run and climb, but they did great. The only parts that caused me concern were about the last 100 yards, and when I looked at the drop-off on the other side of the arch. With good instruction and careful judgment this is a hike the whole family will love.
