Loved this hike! If you can climb a ladder, this is DEFINITELY worth it to check out. Way less crowded than the NPs, and gorgeous views all around.

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.

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.

A quick and short hike. The views of the arches are beautiful, a nice brisk fall day to be out on the trail.

Great trail but it is a little iffy if you have big dogs. We took our golden and he LOVED it. The rock wall you have to climb and the ladder were too much for him and I couldn’t lift all 85 lbs of him up it. The rest in our party made it up fine to see the remaining 1/4 mile and you can still see the arches from the area right before the wire guide climb.

So glad we did it. Met a fellow full-timer on the trail and talked for an hour afterwards as we gazed at the AMAZING amount of stars.

So fun for the doggo- loved this hike (not for people who mind getting there feet a tad bit wet) As for the people saying the trail was hard to follow- it just takes some common sense. If the main trail tapers off, hop to the next biggest trail and you’ll be golden. There are also signs throughout the trail telling you where to go. So beautiful and so worth it!

Absolutely worth a visit while you’re in Moab! Not as crowded as Arches NP and you get some great panoramas from various parts of the trail. Enjoy!

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!

great easy hike. if you have a dog there is a ladder and metal cable climb. I would recommend a pack with a handle for the dog as it made it simple to pull her up. I went at 8am and had the trail to myself!

Busy but great short hike !

This is an easy trail. A couple climbs using a cable rope and a short ladder but still easy. It’s about 2.5 miles round trip to the arch so wear the right shoes. Very worthwhile.

Trail a little rough to find for a short distance up a wash. Beautiful destination!

It was a nice hike. We were alone once we left the petroglyphs. Easy enough for our 8 year old.

Hard to follow the trail but our pup had a great off leash experience, which we were looking for (as allowed by the rules). We only hiked out about a mile but very much enjoyed the time. We had the place to ourselves in November. Very quiet yet close to Moab.

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

Great trail

Part of the moab marathon. It was alright, but there might be more "grand" hikes around.

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

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.

Let me start off by saying that the scenery is absolutely beautiful: the water is clear, the turning aspens against the red cliffs are stunning. I only hiked 1.5 miles in because this trail is blatantly abused. The heavily trafficked trail with just-as-heavily trafficked off-shoots makes this trail crazy hard to follow. The effort by BLM is there (they have some postings on where the trail is supposed to lead you to), but I accidentally veered off trail so many times that I unintentionally was part of the problem. And the graffiti on the walls of the cliffs make me sick. And when I saw dog poop, a shoe, and a beer can in the same vicinity of the first waterfall, I decided I couldn’t continue further. This place is in dire need of restoration so when people post how fun it was to explore, what they’re really saying is that they had fun going off trail and stomping over the land not part of the trail (whether it be intentional or not). What a shame.

Great easy hike with pictographs along the way to a beautiful swimming hole. Water is best in summer months but the hike is great year round.

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!

Best hike close to town. Awesome for off leash dogs. Great for hot weather because you cross the creek multiple times, ends at really nice waterfall. Leave no trace!

One of my favorite trails! Great for dogs. Beautiful canyon. Not too much parking. Multiple shallow water crossings, I recommend hiking in Chacos or Tevas. About 25 mins from town.

This is a beautiful hike, especially in Fall. Some crossings are required so get your feet wet, and enjoy!

Great alternative to the busy trail to Corona Arch. The trail involves a short section of class 3 climbing.

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!!!
