Outstanding. New favourite hike in Moab.

awesome trail. felt more like exploring than going on a hike. be sure to cross over the railroad tracks to get to the hike. it is misleading because there is another trail that takes you along the tracks. takes you to a nice viewpoint, but not the arches. follow the green rectangles on the ground and you will find it easily.

Hiked on 1/22, started at around 4:10pm, aiming for sunset. Beautiful sunlight with mild wind. Ranger said the last 0.5 miles of the trail are very icy in morning; when we arrived around 5pm, only part of the trail was covered by ice, probably melted already. micro-spikes helped a lot. The Arch under the sunset was amazing. Love the glowing orange color on the Arch. Totally worth the effort. Heading down after getting dark is a bit challenging, especially the icy part. We brought a flashlight and it was a life saver.

Great hike. Easy going at the start with a little challenge on the last leg due to ice and snow. Sand and groomed trail to start, changing to rock midway and then back to mixed sand and rock at the end. Short ledge section at the final part.
Wonderful views both of the arch and the surrounding valleys. Haven't hiked in a while so it was a longer trip than it might normally be. Very worth it, especially since we were the only people there at the time (mid January).

Nice view, super easy hike and was pretty empty early on this time of year.

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!

Fabulous hike. I really enjoyed it in the Winter. I did a Google Earth trail while I was here so if you want to check it out virtual like you can see it on my blog www.shaunasadventures.com or in Google Earth. I was grateful for whoever painted the green rectangles on the trail to Mark the path. Brilliant! Made it super easy to follow the trail. Definitely had to watch for ice. Normally I would put my crampons/Spikes on if a trail has ice, but it had more areas with no bare rock that it was easier to detour around the ice. Arches were magnificent! Loved it!

Okay, it is windy. But it is an easy trail with views for days. Really amazing - esp. at sunset!

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.

This is a get your picture and leave type of hike. Compared to Corona and Bowtie, it was meh. The arch itself is awesome. The hike up is nothing special. At the top, you’re met with a whole bunch of people with little hiking ettiequte. People perched under the arch making it impossible to get a photo and groups of people talking and yelling.

An all around better option is Corona and Bowtie. The drive there is AWESOME! The hike is so freaking fun and the arch is just as spectacular.

You have to see Delicate arch when you come to Utah, but definitely don’t do this as your only arch hike!

AMAZING! This is much more fun and spectacular than Delicate arch. Quiet trail, awesome views, and the arch is jaw dropping. Exploring around the arch makes your feel like a little kid! DO THIS HIKE! Again, MUCH better, in my opinion, than Delicate Arch.

Wow! (In Owen Wilson’s voice)
This trail was EPIC! Incredible views and 100% worth it! It was considered moderate for us. It took about 1 hour and 15 minutes to hike up and 40 minutes to go back down. It was a little Icy but nothing too crazy. Elevation gain was a little difficult at times, but doable. Definitely a must do! Unbelievable views at the arch!

Short and easy yet stunning and beautiful. Delicate arch, probably the most famous of all the arches and understandably so.

Beautiful hike. Got very hot even at 9 am in July. But was well worth it.

This is a great little hike to an iconic arch in the Canyonlands experience. Parking is convenient but during the middle of the day the arch will be receiving many visitors as it is quite a tourist attraction. And if you're adventurous enough to rise early and catch the classic sunrise through the arch, you'll have plenty of photographers to keep you company. Happy hiking!

It is “only” 1.5 miles each way, but there is a lot of elevation and uneven footing. Right now there is also snow and ice. So I would say it is moderate to difficult. BUT totally worth it. Amazing to see the Arch up close! This is a must-do in the park!

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.

Right off the main road, making it a very busy place. Still a great and easy landmark to visit!

Beautiful evening to see the most iconic natural structure in Utah! It was a perfect hike with excellent views. The only downside is all the tourists who actually walk directly under the arch. Had to photoshop quite a few people out of my photos!

This trail is wonderful. It’s a little challenging with some mildly steep rock to traverse before you get to a more flat path, but this just adds to the experience in my opinion. Both arches are pristine and Corona Arch is one of my favorite hikes I’ve done so far in Moab, if you’re looking for a place to go during the shutdown this is your hike! It took my group about two hours to complete this with plenty of stops for photos and sitting to enjoy the winter sun - this is definitely not crowded in the winter!

Amazed how the arches were formed! Love it!

A great hike to see some arches during the shutdown

Great hike with lots to see - 2 Arches and a cool side canyon
Best views of Corona Arch were on the far side looking back
Hike had a short ladder and 2 cables to assist hikers over steeper sections of slick rock
Great for all ages

amazing!!! the views were unreal, the arches are impressive and breathtaking, and the hike was very fun.

not a super challenging hike- even in the snow and slush. crampons helped big time; those rocks are so slippery. slight up hill climb to get to the challenging parts with the ladder and metal rope, then pretty flat till you get to the arches.

maybe this trail is more dog friendly without snow but i’m still not sure how my lab managed to get up past the ladder area and the first initial climb with the metal rope. pretty terrifying to see him climb up and down, but he managed. wouldn’t have tried that had we known just how steep it was!

if you have a truly strong, adventurous, fit dog, or a dog you can carry, go ahead. otherwise, you’ll be turning back before seeing anything really cool.

Magnificent views, was crowded when we went in Jan, but that might have been caused from the closure of Arches due to the Gov shutdown. Easyish hike, first part's the hardest, the. cruise till u see the arch. It has a ladder and a couple of steel cable guided spots to get under the arch.

Great trail, long hike mostly on redrock. Very short portion through the sand. Recommend, definitely worth the view and picture at the end.

Did this hike in 103 degrees which SUCKED. But once you get to the top, the view is gorgeous. The hike isn’t too long, but it’s essentially straight up the entire way. Definitely wear good hiking shoes, as the rock is in a fish bowl formation at the arch, and can be slippery and if you fall... well... ya done lol. Definitely bring water, and LOTS of sunscreen if going during the summer, there are no trees on the way up.

Very pretty hike. Did it a few days ago and it was snowy and slippery!!! Have traction and watch footing past the first cable and after the cable ladder. Looks a little sketchy there in the ice and cold. Beautiful arches!

This was an easy hike with a beautiful arch at the end. There was one small part that was very steep and we needed to hold onto the cable and one part with a short ladder.
We liked this better than Arches National Park!

We did this wonderful hike on a cold (25-38 degrees) but sunny day. It was all other hikers say— interesting and not too hard with cables and a ladder. Some other hikers we ran into thought it was challenging but worth it. We were very glad to have micro spikes. Others around us with boots or tennis shoes had a very hard time on the slippery rock.
The arch is beautiful; one resident said it was his favorite, even compared to the ones in Arches National Park. Go!
