Easy hike but great with dogs. Stream was high given the weather last week which made it challenging to navigate crossings. With dogs we had to turn before the falls as we could traverse the rock face and the stream water was deep! Summer hike would be fantastic....lots of great pools to get refreshed!

Not great in winter - snow and ice makes it hard (and dangerous) to climb up and down the rock. Otherwise, amazing views! Short scramble up.

This place/hike is amazing. I actually did this back in 2015. I had to follow a blog post someone had posted on the directions to the false kiva but that made it more fun. It was like a scavenger hunt! There are some loose rocks on the trail so be careful and wear proper footwear. But the views are stunning and the whole hike was so awesome. My husband was so happy that I took him there. What an amazing experience.

Easy walk and beautiful scenery.

We went in January - lots of snow and ice. Found it a bit boring. Scenery in the park is epic but for 4 miles of this hike you are stuck down in a canyon. Two highlights were seeing a herd of deer and seeing a frozen waterfall. Otherwise, it was just drudging in snow. And one part was a hilariously icy scamper up rock cliff. Wouldn’t want to do that twice!

I did the rim trail part - easy and great views. January so some snow and ice but manageable. I tried hooking onto the mill creek trail but it was covered in ice and snow - okay to hike maybe. But no way I could run it.

This was a fun hike, and perfect place to stop and lunch. Had a lot of fun hopping from rock to rock, until we landed on the "whale" . You can get a decent view of Upheaval Dome.

Super fun, the dogs loves it too. Soft sand trail, no big incline’s. Follows the creek so you do cross it several times but water was low (end of October) and easily passable. We will definitely be back!

So fun for the doggo- loved this hike (not for people who mind getting there feet a tad bit wet) As for the people saying the trail was hard to follow- it just takes some common sense. If the main trail tapers off, hop to the next biggest trail and you’ll be golden. There are also signs throughout the trail telling you where to go. So beautiful and so worth it!

Very scenic arch. A favorite!

Hard to follow the trail but our pup had a great off leash experience, which we were looking for (as allowed by the rules). We only hiked out about a mile but very much enjoyed the time. We had the place to ourselves in November. Very quiet yet close to Moab.

It's ok, but there is so much nicer around

Part of the moab marathon. It was alright, but there might be more "grand" hikes around.

There are much nicer arches out there!

The other one next to it is nicer, but still worth making that 0.2 detour!

I think this is the second best arch. Definetly worth the little detour!

Go see it if you go that far, but don't miss the arches! I would also suggest making the whole loop if you already go that far...

Not my favorite, there are nicer arches out there!

Nice terrain and some good views. You get to the trail by walking directly out of the back door of the visitors center. Not difficult by any means, but I felt the path was a little unclear. Not as many markers to keep you in the right direction like many of the other trails at the national monument.

Let me start off by saying that the scenery is absolutely beautiful: the water is clear, the turning aspens against the red cliffs are stunning. I only hiked 1.5 miles in because this trail is blatantly abused. The heavily trafficked trail with just-as-heavily trafficked off-shoots makes this trail crazy hard to follow. The effort by BLM is there (they have some postings on where the trail is supposed to lead you to), but I accidentally veered off trail so many times that I unintentionally was part of the problem. And the graffiti on the walls of the cliffs make me sick. And when I saw dog poop, a shoe, and a beer can in the same vicinity of the first waterfall, I decided I couldn’t continue further. This place is in dire need of restoration so when people post how fun it was to explore, what they’re really saying is that they had fun going off trail and stomping over the land not part of the trail (whether it be intentional or not). What a shame.

on Mill Creek Trail

Great easy hike with pictographs along the way to a beautiful swimming hole. Water is best in summer months but the hike is great year round.

Best hike close to town. Awesome for off leash dogs. Great for hot weather because you cross the creek multiple times, ends at really nice waterfall. Leave no trace!

One of my favorite trails! Great for dogs. Beautiful canyon. Not too much parking. Multiple shallow water crossings, I recommend hiking in Chacos or Tevas. About 25 mins from town.

Very nice, but long walk, especially if you are strategically planning your creek crossings. Right now, the creek is low enough that you could probably do the whole hike without getting your feet wet as long as you planned your crossings carefully and channeled your inner gazelle. But, there are lots of chances to slip up and so the odds are pretty good that will eventually end up with at least one foot in the water. The last 20 feet to the waterfall does require that you walk in the water, but I took off my shoes for that part. I saw 2 other people the entire 3 to 4 hours I was in the canyon.

The driving directions as I got them from the AllTrails app were exactly correct, but it seemed like the actual hike is shown incorrectly. Professor Valley road is a couple miles before the signed Onion Creek Road if you are coming from Moab. When you get to the end of Professor Valley road, there are two parking areas right next to each other, and if you park in the last one the well-marked Sylvester trailhead is to the right. On the left there is a trail running down into a wash and then up the other side. That's the right one. You need to stay alongside the creek the whole way. In the first mile or so, don't get fooled into going down any of the washes away from the running creek, even if you see footprints or horse tracks. I made that mistake and had to backtrack. Just under a mile before you reach the waterfall, there is a side canyon that you could explore if you wanted to climb up a makeshift rope ladder someone has placed to get up over a large boulder.

This is a beautiful hike, especially in Fall. Some crossings are required so get your feet wet, and enjoy!

Nice offshoot from Devil’s Garden. When we went, the area under the arch was filled with water, and with the sun, it creating some beautiful lighting and reflections. Massive wall leading up to the arch is picturesque as well. Almost didn’t do this detour and ended up being glad I did.

Amazing!!! Beautiful hike and trail with some fun climbing/ scrambling. Totally worth it. We were the only ones on this trail at 7am on October 15th.

I loved hiking this trail. There are multiple creek crossings which make it really dynamic and fun. We made it to the cave, but I believe it goes a bit further than that. Totally worth it !
