Easy hike just make sure you stay to the left at the fork in the canyon. The swimming hole is really beautiful tucked inside the alcove. Br sure to check out the petroglyphs on the canyon wall when you’re navigating the slanted rocks at the beginning of the trail.

Absolutely amazing! This was without a doubt the best hike in Arches, totally worth it!

Gorgeous hike at Arches! We got to the trailhead around 7am and it was pretty packed, but definitely plenty of parking. There’s a giant rock to climb up so the elevation gain can be a kicker but it’s worth it. Great photo opportunity at the end but there will be tons of people in your pictures!

this is by far the best way to see delicate arch. well worth the moderate effort to see. great for sunset photos, but bring a flashlight or headlamp for the hike out, the trail nearest delicate arch is over rock and can be difficult to follow back in the dark

Very easy short trail, but you wind around until you’re inside various sandy canyons! It is a perfect playground for kids - a giant sandbox. And it has beautiful lines and angles for those interested in photography.

The arch is spectacular! So nice that it’s a dog friendly trail as well. We went in the middle of the day and it was very hot, but other than that it was great!

This hike is very popular, so be ready for lots of people to be around. It was stunning and well worth the climb. Bring hiking boots for the climb because a significant portion of the hike is on a semi-smooth rock face. If you are afraid of heights, there is a stretch at the end of the outward portion right before the arch that has a drop on one side and a wall on the other, but it is a fairly wide path enough for at least two people walking side by side and it is a pretty short distance. The view at the top is amazing.

Fairly easy trail and was nice in the evening. Fairly busy but spread out with certain sections of the hike. Great view at the end made it completely worth it.

Saw the sunset here. Very cool!

Got to the Arch at 7am on Labor Day and around 40 people were already there. Nice hike to visit this iconic arch.

Climbed a little fin off to the side was fun.

What a delightful surprise! This arch is hidden among a couple of fins. Very different setting from the rest of the Arches.

Tougher hike than we expected. It was super windy when we hiked it and when we got to the arch we felt like we were going to blow over. This hike is an absolute MUST when visiting Arches NP!

Easy and short hike to an arch. Not overly crowded.

Beautiful views throughout the entire hike. Very easy trail!

Great hike to see the sunset on the Delicate Arch. The hike is moderate to difficult due to climb. Pretty wide paths when you are not on the rocks. Loved listening to the “aha” and “OMG” when folks got first glimpse of the arch.

Awesome arches that are easily accessible from parking area.

Even though short in distance, take water. Some parts might concern people with fears of heights (like me) but the Arch is spectacular and the symbol of Utah. Gradients are gentle. Take water.

The end of the hike was beautiful. We went around noon in the end of August and it was really hot. If I could do it again I’d arrive early morning or late afternoon. Definitely worth seeing!

Make sure you bring water

We did this hike with our 4 and 9 year olds. It was a pretty easy hike in terms of the terrain, but the steep climb was tough for them (despite hiking in the mountains frequently). The sign says to bring 2L of water per person, and we definitely needed it! There’s not many shady spots to get out of the sun, so lots of sunscreen too. The hike was well worth it for the amazing view!!

One of my favorite places to visit. The views are spectacular. Only downside is the amount of people. Must see at sunset.

be polite. as a local - I send folks here, looking for a short hike to an amazing arch with a view - ALL the time. Not so they can watch 24 out of towner photographer wannabes clog the arch with their tripods and get pissy with people who would like to get a shot, as well. Get out of the way. take your shot. share this Earth; even though you think it revolves around you. there are far too many entitled people at this trail, lately.

Don't let the short distance fool you. I saw lots of struggling kids and cranky parents as they scaled the steepest part in the middle up the rock. Took me 1.5 hrs with a brief break at the arch. Allow more time if you want a pic under the arch as there are tons of people and a long line...

Utah's iconic arch. I hiked this mid day and it was very hot. Either hike early or bring plenty of water.

Amazing. The trail is easy with a steady incline all the way to the arch. Avoid a sunset visit as there are many people.

Didn’t make the sunrise but the sunset is still pretty spectacular. Also with a full moon it’s amazing. There were not many people around at all.

Hiked this trail with our dog and it was great! Where there was ladders or hand rails he hiked up next to us fine no problem! Great dog trail and gorgeous views!

This was the best hike on our trip. Unique scenery, you have the trail to yourself and the views/arches are insane! Must do hike!

There is green paint on the ground to mark the trail. Additionally, there are some areas to climb with either cables or a ladder.
