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

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

I hiked this trail five days ago before the snow hit Arches. It was lovely. I took primitive trail around to the dark angel and then back on the main trail. Definitely need to follow the cairns and keep an eye out for them but even with that the travel was pretty well marked. It was a moderately challenging walk, relatively flat with a few climbs here and there. Very enjoyable and nice way to see a lot of Arches.

Great hike, at times following the trail on the slick rock was challenging but very few people had no one at Navajo and only a couple of people at Double Arch. Temp was 18 degrees at 8:30 am when I started well worth the hike

Beautiful view at the end, well marked trail.

One of the best hikes! Did this on Dec. 25. Trail was icy. It was icy and very slippery near Double O arch. So bring some traction control with you if you are doing it in winters. You will not regret the additional weights of it when approaching Double O. It took us almost 6 hours to finish it. But again, we took a lot of breaks to take photographs. Also, the hike definitely seemed more than 7 miles. My fitbit, by the end of the hike, showed we had walked 9 miles. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
If you want to beat the winter crowds, start early around 7-8am and a minimum of 2 liters of water even in winter.

Unbelievable hike. I took the primitive trail and had a hard time staying on the trail even with this app, and it involved more scrambling than I expected!

Went in via the primitive trail, made for a much more rewarding experience when you reach the arches. Bring 1.5 gallons of water per person, heat stroke is no joke. We left at 5 am mid July to beat the heat! Great sunrise - 10/10

Loved the hike, easy, with great views. It was a bit difficult at times to see the cairns but we were able to get back on the trail. Icy and snowy at parts but we were fine with our hiking boots (no trek poles or shoe grips).

A short little hike to see two arches for the price of one... it's unbelievable how big some of the arches are!

A great opportunity to experience grand views along this rim hike loop. Of course, the highlight is the gooseneck bend in the Colorado River!

Super fun trail. Took the route of starting at the Primitive trail and ending with Devils Garden Main trail. Personally I found this to be nice because I went up the steep rock on primitive and not down it, which I was told many people turn around at that point. I will say though if going in the winter and planning on taking the same route, have ice spikes or chains. The Main Trail was icy around 2pm. The whole loop took me 4 hours and that includes stopping for lunch at Dark Angel and getting lost for about a half mile while looking for the Main Trail. Good hike all in all.

I won’t call this a hike, more like a quick trail to view these stunning arches! Perfect place to start and be sure to head over to Windows.

if you have been to Canyonlands National Park, you can skip this. It does have some nice view points. It is flat. But it is not much different.

Worth hiking this trail to the end as it provides views on the other side of the mesa too! For more details and pics, visit https://etbtravelphotography.com/2018/11/20/best-hikes-canyonlands/

Amazing. I am a teensy bit scared of heights, but easily made it over the double o fin with a bit of hand holding and a whole lottta confidence.

This is by far an impressive hike! The primitive loop is well worth it. Truly gorgeous.

On the Devils tour this week. Came in for the day and even tho we started the hike at 2:00 (a bit later than I planned) we finished up right before sunset and the light was magical.

Fun trail! Get there early to beat the crowds and use AllTrails if you go on the primitive trail because you will definitely get lost!

Incredible hike took our family about 4.5 hours today – the full loop including a few of the offshoots. It was moderate to a little scary at times but well worth the effort. It is the quintessential Arches national Park hike!

Pretty middle hike, some stairs but other then my that smooth. Beautiful views, must so you can see both sides of the canyon at the same time!

A nice view overlooking the canyons. Easy hike

It's awesome! Not really a hike, but great views

A nice little hike that includes all major arches. I suppose this is THE thing to do in arches NP. It wasn't always clear to me where the trail was, but nothing dramatic. There are a lot of people if you don't go too early, so it shouldn't be a problem.

The most amazing place we visited at arches. It's awe-inspiring to be nestled under the huge double arches. There's some not-too-steep rock climbing that our kids loved.

Beautiful and diverse scenery. Highly recommend for the adventurous traveler!

Easy hike with a great view!

Moderate at most for avid hikers. Could be difficult at times for weekend hikers. Don’t let the difficult rating deter you. There are only a couple spots where you have to either climb or descend some slightly slippery rock faces. I did it counter clock wise in tennis shoes in about 2.5 hours. I wouldn’t say one direction is easier than the other. Beautiful and rewarding views!

Definitely a challenging hike! We did it clockwise - the first half (up to the double O arch) was well-marked, well-traveled, and not too tough. The second half, the primitive trail, had some very, very challenging parts, mainly a tiny ledge with sketchy hand holds. A LOT of people turned back there. Just know it exists, and be ready for it. There are no major arches on the primitive trail, but the winding canyon is really beautiful; it was worth doing for us (ages 62, 53, 26, 24). Pack in a lot of water - I packed in 2 liters on a fairly cold day and I was shocked I went through all of it.

This and Angels Landing are the only two trails I have ever quit on. I do not recommend anybody attempt it in the clockwise direction unless they have shoes with a very good grips, and a tenacity of will to match. The views were beautiful, especially partition arch.
