It was a easy fan trail, and incredible view all around.

Watching the sunset here was magical. Very few people in the evening which was surprising. Seeing all the stars at night and hiking back was amazing. We even got a glimpse of the Milky Way

Go at sunset and watch the sunset with the Corona Arch right in front of you!

the two miles to the end are longer than it'd seem. took about 2 hours, but beautiful trail. the beginning has the best views

Set Google maps to "false kiva." Could not find this trail. No cairns, no logs, nothing.

great hike, just don't do in the heat of the day. please note, no shade and not advisable for dogs in the heat. rock gets very hot. enjoy

The best views in Island in the Sky, along with the White Rim overlook, and a very easy trail. Would definitely recommend.

This arch is a sunrise must. Get there earlier than 15 minutes before sunrise though because there were a wall of people setup with tripods hogging the entire photograph viewpoints at that time already. If not for the surprising amount of people I would’ve gave 5. Popular spot, so come early if you want a parking spot.

I hiked part of this trail along the edge of the cliff. It’s beautiful and fairly easy. There’s just stairs every now and then.

An ok and pretty straightforward hike. Go to the second overlook, which provides slightly better views of the features. Kind of cool that the history behind the creation of the features is still being discovered. Overall though, happy enough to have hiked it once, would likely not do it again.

Really nice short and easy hike to cap off my time at Canyonlands. Did it towards the end of the day when the sun was setting, which really made the experience!

You can see many huge steps on the land. That is amazing.

The scene you can look through the arch likes that in another planet!

Really beautiful scene to see the gooseneck from above.

A must do hike. We didn’t realize the green splotches on the ground were there to guide us so we did a lot of extra hiking. We went at 4:00 pm the last day of July so it was pretty hot and miserable until we made it to the other side of the mountain where you can view the arch from. Even in the terrible heat all four of our young kids were able to make it. They really enjoyed pulling themselves up the ladder and rope areas.

What an incredible hike! I did it alone after consulting with some Utah friends. Right when you think you might be lost, there are green paint splotches on the rocks guiding you all the way to the Arch. Start early as there is no shade. Also wear good hiking shoes. So worth it!

Easy hike with beautiful scenery. Highly recommend.

Stunning views and a nice hike!

do not skip pine tree

PSA: This is not a great trail for kids under 8 or 10. The signage isn’t terribly clear and the trail is rough. Our 4 year old did make the trip but it was tough going. In retrospect I would never have done this with her— could totally see a broken wrist/arm/ankle situation.

Just got done hiking the full loop at 2pm. This was such a beautiful hike! We came prepared with 2L + of water and snap towels to keep us cool and snacks. Even though it was in the middle of the day, we were prepared and we loved it!

The trail was marked with Cairns and very easy to follow.

Excellent trail, we liked the view much better than the Grand Canyon.

Follow the green dot road! (Sung to the tune in wizard of oz!) bring lots of water if hiking mid day. Fun hike.

Very short hike, but crowded. I came in early May and there was still quite a crowd.

Nice loop hike to oversee the landscape.

did the entire loop and the overlooks and it was 6 miles. except for the over looks I saw 2 other people, this was a very isolated hike. the beauty was stunning! so worth it if you are on fence. took 3 hours, bring a gallon of water, not much shade but there is more on the west rim side. I saw 2 very large black ear jack rabbits close by on the west side. they did run away but I was able to watch them for 200 ft, beautiful!

This is a great and rewarding hike for those visiting the Islands in the Sky part of Canyonlands NP. The trail is easier to follow than some suggest, and park staff was helpful in pointing out where to access. It was one of our favorites at the park. The combination of good views, history, and slight challenge makes this a fun trip for a short hike.
