If you go to Arches and you aren’t just a tourist then GO DO THIS TRAIL!!!! We got to the visitors center right at 7:30am when it opened so we were the first people out on the trail and it was amazing. Maybe one of my favorite trails I’ve ever hiked. We got lost for almost an hour but just laughed to whole time because the scenery was too gorgeous to be upset. Please do yourself a favor and hike this trail!!!

We did this hike with Ranger Vicky (she is really brilliant) and the hike was amazing.

What a great hike!!! Not hard at all, but if you are not used to elevation it can sometimes get hard to breathe.

This is a nice short trail with lots of shade. There’s a small gap (maybe 2 feet) that you have to squeeze through to get to the sand dune arch.

Overlooked but easy and beautiful!

Great arches. But be prepared for walking through a bit of sand and there is very little shade on the trail. Bring water.

Best surprise on this trail! Make sure you see this in at the Arches!

We started this hike at 6.30pm mid July and it was perfect. Most of the trail was already shaded from
the sun, which made the tour fairly easy. You should still bring plenty of water tho! It was a very easy hike, beautiful scenery and when we arrived at the Toadstools, it looked like on Mars. Would definitely recommend this hike in the later afternoon in summer.

I did this trial in early July while my dad and son slept in the car. It was pretty easy, but make sure you have a lot of water. Its well worth the short hike to see the toadstools.

Wow! Great trail, short and shady so perfect for the summer months. Don't miss this scenic little hike! Great for kids, too!

Water is too shallow to cliff jump.

Nice little trail. Way too heavily trafficked for my liking, but enjoyed wading through the shallow waters from the falls. Beautiful canyon. If you’re heading here for some cliff jumping, be cautious. There is a certain spot to jump and it’s chest deep at best. Though it has a sand bottom, apparently a couple people have broken ankles from the jumps.

I would say it’s more like 3 miles but so worth it! Kids loved looking in the ruins and I loved the history!

It's sandy...really sandy...

Nice short hike. The views we're good and formations were interesting.

Best hike in park can climb boulders past arch to valley on other side. Mostly in shade in the heat of the day. Have done three times . Have done with three grandchildren they all love the climbing and seeing the sand arch

This is one of the coolest hikes I’ve done! It’s an easy walk back into the canyon along the stream. At the end of the hike there is a cool swimming hole with cliff jumping! Highly recommend this one on a hot day.

Easy and fun trail. It is kind of a mix between Arches and Goblin Valley. Great views of all different rock formations and very few people in the park.

Short flat easy hike back to the ruin along a creek bed. Partially shaded along the way which is a plus in the hot summer sun. The ruin is picturesque but not real large. It is worth the visit.

If you have good knees, no fear of heights/cramped spaces and don’t mind scrambling up and down over boulders and squeezing through small spaces do yourself a favour and get the permit to do this hike!!! Best $6 we ever spent (per person). Full body workout, such an adventure and the best sense of solitude that we have had in Arches. We got lost for about 30min at one point but that’s half the fun (just keep retracing your steps to look for the trail marker). Follow advice of other reviewers and take the time to find surprise arch. Set off 3 hrs before sunset and only saw one other person on the trail - amazing! We got out just after sunset. Honestly can’t recommend this enough. If you are super worried about getting lost consider a ranger tour - apparently around 15 people per group.

Great hike, which we did as a family of 5 in sneakers and Keen sandals without much struggle. Beautiful scenery!! Perfect place to take photos. It was 104 degrees in 3rd week of June when we did it, take LOTS of water and know your heat limits. We stayed an hour before heading back and could feel the heat taking its toll by the time we got back to the car. The hike is easiest following the dry wash and more scenic following the path (not well marked). Parking is right off the busy road so be mindful about bringing belongings and leaving in the car. No bathrooms or rest areas. Definately worth the hike!

Did this cool hike on our way from Zion to Page, AZ. Well worth the stop, you truly feel like you’re on Mars or something. Trail markers are scarce but pretty much follow the creek wash until you get to the top. Great spot to see hoodoos.

Great short little hike. Did it with a group of young men ages 14-17. Everyone did great. The waterfall is beautiful and the water is cool. There’s a couple spots to jump off into the water, but it’s only about 7-8 ft deep in a small section you need to hit. There was another group of scouts there and one boy jumped off the higher cliff and hurt his leg pretty badly. The hike is nice. Crossing the creek a few times or just hiking in the creek. It’s pretty shallow. Overall a good time.

My wife, three kids (13, 10 and 6) and I really enjoyed the mile hike down to the waterfall. My 10 year old daughter appreciates any hike with water (and this one did not disappoint). I even jumped off cliff above waterfall for the fun of it. Red/orange rocks complimented the bright blue sky for a beautiful hike.

very easy hike. amazing spot to get into the shade and have a snack or lunch. nice breeze. relaxing !

i went layer in the afternnon and there only two families enjoying the arch. they were on their way out so I got an awesome pic
