on Delicate Arch Trail

1 day ago

Must see when going to Utah. Went at 9:00am, crowds were getting bad when leaving.

Easy hike. My favorite arch of all time!

Did this hike a year ago and it was amazing! Beautiful view! You can’t beat this beautiful area

Easy, fantastic views, neat biological soil communities along the way. Even after sunrise, Mesa Arch is breathtaking.

Breathtaking. Take two or three times the water you think you'll need. The hike up the slickrock affords you no shade and can be brutal even as even starts to set in.

This is a beautiful Trail! The view the whole time on the Trail is Amazing! My mother in law did this hike and she’s 70 years old. She loved this hike!

One of the most iconic arches that there is! This moderate hike is a great way to end a day in the park, I've always hiked this in mid-afternoon and found that the crowds were manageable. The trail steadily climbs upward and could be challenging for those who are not avid hikers or are out of shape. Enjoy a snack and photo opportunity at the end to really soak in the spectacle that is The Delicate Arch.

Fantastic hike and a great introduction to the Moab area. I always recommend this hike to folks who are unfamiliar with this area as it is extremely easy to find and is a well marked trail. The two arches at the end are just a bonus, the scenery is equally as stunning! Be wary that there is a small ladder and somewhat of a "climbing" scramble at one point, but nothing that should deter a typical hiker. Enjoy!

I found this trail to be somewhat difficult. The incline was pretty consistent throughout the hike and perhaps I wasn't quite adjusted to the altitude yet. Bring plenty of water. I hiked in early April and was blessed with above average weather. There were plenty of people but it wasn't overwhelming and didn't take away from the beauty of the place. Some areas were more narrow than others and near the edge so be mindful and definitely have good shoes! The arch was amazing but there were a line of people waiting to get their photo. Incredible view from many points on the hike.

This hike is short but a definite must do in the park. Delicate Arch is as good as it gets! Recommend going early to avoid the massive crowds.

Did this with a 5-year-old, and he was THRILLED with the two short chained areas and the little ladder. The views are awesome and it was way less crowded than in the park. (We went around 8 AM on a Saturday.) Hike beyond the arch and around the bend for jaw-dropping views.

Really pretty views, just a few steep parts, totally kid friendly, crowded AF even at 9 AM. (The best light is in the late afternoon anyway.) This one is really popular, but my 5-year-old and I got more bang for our buck at the less populated Corona Arch just outside the park.

Beautiful and busy

great views.

Wow !!

Great views. Best to go early in the morning. Hardly anyone was there and the morning sun lights the arch like a ribbon of orange.

Beautiful
Very Windy - limited the crowd size
Iconic!

This is a gradual ascent to an amazing arch. Originally we went to the lower and upper viewpoints. If you can walk up stairs and walk uphill then skip the viewpoints and do the trail to the arch. For us the viewpoints were a waste of time.

Iconic hike at Arches National Park. April weather was perfect, sunny low 80's. The hike on the way up revealed a sublime landscape in every direction.
The view of the arch was amazing, ringed by snow capped mountains in the distance. Take in some of the human history at the beginning of the trail. The Wolfe cabin and nearby Ute petroglyphs each tell a fascinating story. The trail is moderately strenuous, take plenty of water. The effort will be worth it, the views won't disappoint

nice hike for me and my husband it was pretty easy for us probably because we did it back in February and the weather was really nice and it wasn't super hot yet. we loved that there was more hiking involved to get to this Arch made it fun and the actual Delicate Arch is amazing and definitely worth seeing ❤️

Did this back in February during the off-season. the weather ended up being pretty nice and since it was the offseason running into other people was a little more rare witch for us was great! This arch is one of my favorites the size of it will take your breath away! ❤️

fun place. lots to see
