Amazing views.

My favorite trail. Hiked about a dozen times, each as rewarding as the last. The views are absolutely tremendous for how little activity it takes to get there. Simply wonderful

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!

Absolutely breathtaking hike. The views are amazing and walking onto the sky bridge is an amazing experience. The day we went had 25-30mph gusts of wind so it was unnerving for sure. If you are afraid of heights it’s a great hike to conquer that! Highly recommend!

Nice scenery and trails were good

Very pretty rock formations. Trails were nice but went after it rained. Pretty muddy

took the OG up and to the lodge on the way back down. wasn't as natural on the way up or down but the views are still worth it.

This trail was beautiful! Hiked with a group of friends and really enjoyed the scenery. As soon as it gets tiring you are rewarded with awesome views!

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.

Took the OG trail to the top of the bridge and came back down Needle’s Eye. Beautiful views!

This is a nice Arch with a great view. Half of this hike is a gravel road. Not great. Other half is a nice trail. Keep kids from the 140 foot cliff at the Arch. Would have a better rating except the boring gravel road.. I’d do this hike again but after I finish all the other trails at the Gorge first.

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.

One of favorite in the park. It's a nice Sunday morning get your blood pumping while you walk and drink coffee kind of hike. Smaller formations than other trails but more accessible and personal. Also, if your into geology, it has some beautiful formation patterns and water erosion features.

Took the OG trail up and Devil's Gluch back down. Enjoyed every bit of it.

Very scenic. Lots to see if you really look. The low grounds in the summer are nice. The views from the cliffs are beautiful. Not too difficult at all. Trail not marked too well for the walk back from Courthouse Rock.

Good trail and well maintained. I enjoyed reading about the history of the park and the views are beautiful! However, it's not a trail I would come back to to do it again. It wasn't as natural as I would like (railings, tons of steps, pebbles to outline the trail, etc.).

Great views in the fall.

Easy trail with some scenic views, probably nicest in the fall. Definitely can see it getting crowded then as well. Was hard to figure out the optimal route but it's all pretty short and easy with wide, well maintained trails so it didn't really matter.

this trail has spectacular views if you hike in using the main trail and just retrace your steps back out. if you hike the loops, the rest of the loop is kind of anticlimactic, pretty strenuous and in some places not well marked.

It was a pretty easy short trail. The windows were not impressive, but still worth the time to see. There is a nice view from the parking lot too, sharp drop-off cliff.

We found the trail to be somewhat difficult. It was slippery from some rain. The path was worn down and washed out in some places. The roots from trees were exposed in many places and made hiking difficult.

Absolutely stunning views! I have brought my one year old and dog here with no worries.

Awesome Trails!! Amazing views and awesome overlooks of the beautiful mountains.

One of my favs. Lovely hike with amazing views.

One of my all times favorites. Loved his hike. It was challenging and the views were splendid.

Loved this hike. It is one of my favorites in RRG. Highly recommend. There are great views.
