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

This is a get your picture and leave type of hike. Compared to Corona and Bowtie, it was meh. The arch itself is awesome. The hike up is nothing special. At the top, you’re met with a whole bunch of people with little hiking ettiequte. People perched under the arch making it impossible to get a photo and groups of people talking and yelling.

An all around better option is Corona and Bowtie. The drive there is AWESOME! The hike is so freaking fun and the arch is just as spectacular.

You have to see Delicate arch when you come to Utah, but definitely don’t do this as your only arch hike!

Wow! (In Owen Wilson’s voice)
This trail was EPIC! Incredible views and 100% worth it! It was considered moderate for us. It took about 1 hour and 15 minutes to hike up and 40 minutes to go back down. It was a little Icy but nothing too crazy. Elevation gain was a little difficult at times, but doable. Definitely a must do! Unbelievable views at the arch!

Short and easy yet stunning and beautiful. Delicate arch, probably the most famous of all the arches and understandably so.

This is a great little hike to an iconic arch in the Canyonlands experience. Parking is convenient but during the middle of the day the arch will be receiving many visitors as it is quite a tourist attraction. And if you're adventurous enough to rise early and catch the classic sunrise through the arch, you'll have plenty of photographers to keep you company. Happy hiking!

It is “only” 1.5 miles each way, but there is a lot of elevation and uneven footing. Right now there is also snow and ice. So I would say it is moderate to difficult. BUT totally worth it. Amazing to see the Arch up close! This is a must-do in the park!

Beautiful evening to see the most iconic natural structure in Utah! It was a perfect hike with excellent views. The only downside is all the tourists who actually walk directly under the arch. Had to photoshop quite a few people out of my photos!

Talk about a gorgeous hike with massive rock cliffs surrounding every part of the trail. This hike is a must do! The whole trail is the destination, each portion is beautiful with new photo ops. The trail begins on the right of the parking lot if you’re looking toward the Towers, and there are bathrooms at the trail head. Blew my expectations out of the water!

Amazed how the arches were formed! Love it!

Great trail, long hike mostly on redrock. Very short portion through the sand. Recommend, definitely worth the view and picture at the end.

This trail had amazing views from every angle. The Fischer Towers were massive and the trail winds down and around them. A little slick in the winter but definitely doable!

Did this hike in 103 degrees which SUCKED. But once you get to the top, the view is gorgeous. The hike isn’t too long, but it’s essentially straight up the entire way. Definitely wear good hiking shoes, as the rock is in a fish bowl formation at the arch, and can be slippery and if you fall... well... ya done lol. Definitely bring water, and LOTS of sunscreen if going during the summer, there are no trees on the way up.

It speaks highly of a trail if it can be even more spectacular in the snow and winter as it is in the other months.  This is that trail and more.  As I was walking, I was shocked at the Grandness of this hike.  I wondered, how do you ever describe this?  The river is so beautiful that you get to walk along and cross over multiple times.  The cliffs are just huge and GRAND in their size and they are in front of you, and on both sides of you.   Even though it is hard to come up with words, I will say I I thought the Grandness paralleled the Grandness of God.  I will warn that you really need spikes on this trail. I hike a lot and am pretty careful, but right at the beginning of the trail there was a piece of ice, (I hadn't got started long enough for me to even think I should get my spikes on), and Bam I was on my bum. Broke my tailbone. Definitely got my spikes on fast after that. There are spots to take you up higher and Dodge some of the scary ice, so watch for those side trails. also make sure your wearing a waterproof shoe/boot, or sock. You cross the river lots of times, and you will be super lucky if you don't get your foot in the water, so just make sure you have waterproof gear to keep dry. I did a 360 degree street view trail here. You can check it out on Google Earth, or on my blog.

Beautiful hike! Some good ups and downs. Little hard to follow in the beginning but then it becomes more obvious. Gorgeous to do toward the end of the day to see the sun on the spires. A special spot. Intriguing views and worth the hike!

We hiked this on a very cold (15-23 degrees) day in January. It’s an interesting trail that meanders around and across a stream (multiple times) at the bottom of the canyon. While some others made it without micro spikes, we were very glad to have them, especially in the first quarter mile where there were some sheets of solid ice across the trail.

Just before you get to the arch, there is a very cold shaded spot. We did not get to the arch early enough for the sun; it was already behind the canyon wall, but we still thought it was worth seeing.

There were parents with young children who made it (slowly, they said) without micro spikes, but ours made us feel very confident.

We really enjoyed the hike and think you should go!

Started this at 9:00 AM with the temp at 16 degrees. Had more people than I thought given the weather but was well worth the hike

Fun hike and easy multiple water crossings. The bridge at end is a must see.

Amazing park!

Beautiful at sunset

awesome hike!

if you may not be able to return to Moab, Hell's Revenge is a must.

Beautiful view at the end, well marked trail.

Awesome hike. We did it during sunset and the view was so pretty, literally the arch glows blissful sight to be there.

Amazing Hike!!! This is NOT a destination trail. The whole hike IS your destination! Every corner you turn presents a new beautiful scene! The kids enjoyed this trail more than any of the others that we did on this trip, just because the trail felt more like a playground. Definitely want to do this hike again.

Christmas Day 2018 was spectacular

Was a great afternoon hike to watch the sunset. I highly recommend.

Very challenging. I would go clockwise rather than counter clockwise.

Easy hike that isn’t too crowded in late October. Unbelievable views for the price of admission (a few miles and few hundred feet of elevation gained)

Loved the view! Quick and easy hike with a great view. The trail was snowy and icy at points but completely walk-able with just our hiking boots (no poles or shoe grips).
