Hiked it for my second time yesterday. Awesome terrain and my hat is off to the great people who laid it out and maintain it.

Even better than those in the nearby national parks. Not too technical. Great for family. There are some ups and downs. But it is fun to see the climbers around. Summer can be hot and exposed.

on Mesa Arch Trail

11 days ago

Great sunrise spot. The glow of the sun on the arch is beautiful. The view of canyons behind the arch is also lovely. The trail is very short and takes less than 20 minutes to walk to the arch and easy to follow. Going in mid November was great to miss the crowds but there was still about 10 of us at the arch for sunrise

on Chesler Park Loop Trail

This is a looonnnng one for our family, but fun one. There are many twists and turns. Once reaching the Park, the landscape changes and the view becomes expansive.

The trail is not terribly challenging, but requires some planning and stamina. There are some narrow canyons along the way. Nothing was insurmountable.

Enjoy!

Simple Trail with a few signs indicating surrounding vegetation. Nice view of canyon through arch. For more details and pics visit: https://etbtravelphotography.com/2018/11/20/best-hikes-canyonlands/

Beautiful hike! The only reason to do the entire loop is if hiking through the Joint is important to you. It is similar to a slot canyon. Otherwise doing the shorter hike to the overlook provides all you need to see of the needles as the return on the longer hike gets a little dull around mile 9. Otherwise, it is a great hike including flat parts and scrambling. For more details and pics visit https://etbtravelphotography.com/2018/11/20/best-hikes-canyonlands/

One of the most amazing views is at sunrise. Definitely worth getting up early for!

As good as it gets for a moderate hike with great views! I went around 930 and pretty much had the trail to myself. this is a must when in moab!

Nice trail .05 mil look amazing

Busy but great short hike !

A classic. If your expectations aren't too high, then it's worth it!

love this hike.
take water with you.
be ready to carry small children .yes seriusly dont get fooled by some other reviews ... :-) under age 5 is a hard and long hike for litle ones.
keep eye on children some pople thinks they dog dont need a leash and dogs run front off them by a half a miles

This trail is GREAT!! Recommend going early, as soon as the sun rises, though you could go a bit earlier as the easiest part of the trail is in the beginning, to beat the crowds. I went shortly after sunrise and met tons of people on the way back.
DEFINITELY worth hiking!! Very dog friendly

Absolutely beautiful hike. My sister and I did this hike, ages 64 and 66. Parts of it are nice and easy and parts if it kicked our butts. While the Joint part of the loop had some difficult areas it was quite short and doable. It’s tough coming back as it feels like it will never end. One of our most beautiful and most strenuous hikes.

Awesome hike this time of year. The aspens are changing and the golden leaves cover the ground, most were full of frost even at 4pm! I wasn’t expecting the trickle of water that comes out of the rock at the base of the arch. What a surprise! Well worth the drive out of Moab.

My wife and I did this today with our 2 year old and had an amazing time! We made it to morning glory bridge which was beautiful. Easy going all around but a few scrambles and river crossings that took some time with our 2 year old, great to have a few people there if taking kids for safety. Will be back!

Was a great tour!!! We had rain and a little bit snow! You have to be carefull, the stones with the sandy shoes are slippery when wet!

Full day hiking over varied terrain, over red rocks, down washes, and climbing up some ladders and rock scrambling near the end of the hike.

Amazing views the whole hike! Pretty easy to follow the trail. It has a lot of terrain changes which is part of the fun. It says it is a 2 hour hike but I would plan more time because of the amazing views. You will want to stop to enjoy the scenery. Note there is a short ladder section to bridge a small gap halfway down the trail. May be difficult for small children and large dogs but other people had dogs and kids on the trail. You can always turn around at this point too. The end of the trail takes you out on “bluff.” There is a sign when you get to the end that says “Trail Ends.” 10/10 would totally recommend!!!

Quick and easy day hike with lots of good views and 4-5 water crossings

Amazing hike. Beautiful changing views the whole way. Bring lots of water.

Great trail. Lots of water crossing so wear footwear that you don’t mind getting wet. Imagine it would be difficult at higher water levels. Arch at the end is worth the trip.

Awesome hike. On top of the world at the end.

Loved this trail! Shade and several creek crossings made this a very enjoyable hike in the afternoon. Fun to see a group repelling off the natural bridge at the end too. My 4 kids had no problem navigating this one. We saw lots of dogs.

fabulous day for this hike! Hiked corona and bow tie arch before this, and still made it to the ‘trail end’ sign. awesome views the whole way!

We loved this hike, with its great views and changing scenery. We did the loop in a counterclockwise direction and were glad we did it that way. The slot canyon section was unexpected and amazing. No technically difficult sections. A 1 3/4 hour drive from Moab but well worth it and the roads are good.

great views!

Beautiful canyon scenery with a massive stone bridge at the end. I was not expecting it to be so large. Definitely a moderate hike, there are a lot of creek crossings.
