Beautiful hike. Challenging, but a lot of fun. The view up top is worth the fierce incline on the way up.

I did this amazing hike with my 12 & 13 year old boys. It took us a little over 2 hours. We loved all the rock scrambles and wrong turns. This is a must do hike in Arches

Well worth the effort! Fantastic views and surprised at every turn.

It's ok, but there is so much nicer around

Probably the best hike (this and the loop in the north part with several arches). This is a clasic and a must-hike./walk

We've driven this trail two times and it was great both times. This trail afforded many scenic views and photo opportunities. This is a great journey for returning to Moab from Canyonlands National Park and Dead Horse Point State Park.

This was a good, well trafficked hike. We completed this hike in early August and it was very hot. Make sure to bring plenty of water.

More moderate than hard - I’m carrying a fair bit of excess baggage and found this walk ok - defo 5 stars

Absolutely amazing views from the arch! Take plenty of water. It was cloudy and 55 degrees and I still went through two bottles. I went early in the morning and was at the arch by 9. There were tons of people heading up on my way back down, so I recommend going early. Well worth the hike. This one is a must do!

We went with our young kids in 65-70 degree weather. Perfect! The trail is awesome, with some parts like they were lifted from the set of an old western. Before going, we had our kids practice walking single file along an imaginary cliff edge. I'm glad we did for the last stretch by the drop off, because our usually rambunctious kids were well-behaved. The arch is amazing to see, but it's not the most kid-friendly point with drop offs all around. We stayed for about two minutes then turned back.

We went at sunset, and that might be overrated. I'm not sure it was different than any other time of day.

Group of fairly fit 60-somethings made it up no problem. Great scenery on the way as well as the top. Lots of friendly weekend folks. Just one of multiple trails in Arches Nat’l Park.

Nice, moderate hike with huge pay-off. This is one of the most popular hikes in the park, but the trail is generally so wide that it didn’t really feel crowded until we got up to the area around there arch. Even then, we were all able to get solo pictures with the arch without much waiting. Went in the fall right at golden hour, the lighting was beautiful and the arch is really special.

Hiked with my 9 months old on my back and 6 years old boy last weekend . Awesome...

Strenuous hike but the views worth it

Beautiful hike ask most are in Utah. We loved this national park and hike. Here is the video on my hike.

Did this hike last week it’s beautiful and not to challenging. We did It closer to evening and there were tons of people at the arch. It was almost impossible to get a photo without someone standing with their arms up under the arch.. recommend going in early hours to avoid the crowds. Would have loved to see the sunrise here but it just didn’t work out for us this time.

Do NOT miss an opportunity to hike this trail! It’s a total mind-bender and we both agreed it was the coolest hike we’ve ever done. Took us 3 hrs with a few intentional off-trail explorations (and one or two not so intentional ones, but we never got to far off track.) Start off reasonably early and go counter-clockwise. Bring a lunch - there’s a lot of cool spots to just hang out for a bit.

I did this hike twice in 24 hours, once at sunset and again starting before sunrise. I prefer the sunrise with less people willing to get up at 4 am to start hiking. Got kind of freaked out losing the trail up the slick rock in the pitch dark, but that's why I use this app and a headlamp. Enjoy the stars if you night hike! I'd recommend doing it at least once in the daylight before you attempt in the dark, the trail is deceiving in the darkness.

Our favorite hike in Arches. Need a permit. We felt like we had the place to ourselves!!! Lots of dead ends. Know your way. Beautiful views, hiking on fins and narrow passages. Loved this!!!

This hike is well worth it when you get to the top but NOT an easy hike. Uphill much of the way but just take your time.

Steep incline for about 1/3 the round trip hike, flat 1/3 and steady decline for 1/3. I used poles which was helpful, but not necessary. I had already done 10 miles today and was reluctant to hike another 3 but boy...so worth it. We luckily and totally by chance ended up at the arch five minutes or so before sunset and the arch literally GLOWED. I almost cried because it was just so insanely beautiful...if you don’t do any other somewhat difficult trails in the park, do this one.

Great short hike, wonderful views. The history of the area is very interesting. Great visitor centre

Amazing!!! Beautiful hike and trail with some fun climbing/ scrambling. Totally worth it. We were the only ones on this trail at 7am on October 15th.

Great hike with amazing views at the end! I would say this is a strenuous hike due to the extreme incline hiking on sandstone for about 1/4-1/2 of a mile. There are some steep ledges towards the end of the hike so if you are scared of heights I’d hug the wall on this portion.

Great hike but quite hard for this 57 year old out of shape gal. I say just do it. I had to stop a lot on the way up-much steeper than I thought but the view of the Delicate Arch is well worth it. We went about 8:45 am and it was only 35 degrees when we started but it turned out to be a blessing because we were not overheated or overly thirsty. The trail goes along a cliff edge right at the end which was a little unnerving but I stayed close to the rock face and was fine. There were not very many people there so we were able to take lots of pics. This was one of my favorite hikes.

Very fun and certainly worth the walk. Definitely clogged with people but understandably so

beautiful trail. very heavy traffic but worth checking out.

The drive up was incredible. This is your traditional hard-on-the-way-up, easy-on-the-way-down hike. BUT the arch is worth any discomfort. We were pushing pretty hard due to a time crunch and finished this in 1.25hrs. However, cost $30 to get into the park and I actually enjoyed the view at Corona Arch more, which was a free hike. Still cool if you dont mind paying!

Beautiful night hike to see the stars!! No problems getting up/down at night. There is a steeper rock portion going up where there’s not a clear path, but there’s so many people coming up/down that it was easy to find way. If night hiking, bring flashlight for sure! Arches is a no light park and the parking lot/surrounding area is completely black. Great for viewing stars! Just beautiful
