The trail is good now. No snow shoes needed.

Hiked last summer...Fair warning they’re not kidding when they say this hike is hard. I’ve hiked plenty of ‘hard’ rated hikes before and this one kicked my butt. I would recommend hiking early in the morning or on a cooler day since most of the hike is in the sun. The beginning of the hike was really hard to find since it doesn’t look like a trail at all. It just looks like a dirt hill...you basically go up the switchbacks and then walk straight up this super steep dirt hill that eventually starts to form a trail. On the way up the hike there’s a little cave thats pretty cool by all the big rock formations so don’t miss that. The cabin is in good shape and was really cool, it made the difficult hike worth it...bring plenty of water, you’ll need more than you think trust me.

Once you have the pamphlet the trail is very easy to find. Recommend doing this hike for sunset, it was beautiful and not a very large crowd. Will need some flashlights for the route back as it can be easy to lose the trail.

This trail was SO beautiful today! The snow was perfect on the trees and mountains and good to walk through. Lots of people snow shoeing and with touring skis. I had hike spikes and poles and that worked great. The falls at the end was amazing and so worth traversing up the rocks at the top to get inside the little cave. The road to the trailhead is closed due to snow but it doesn’t make it that much longer.

Wow. Wow. Wow. We hiked on 12/1 and there was 2-3' of snow the entire length of the trail. There was a small 2' wide compacted path the entire route so it was nice and easy to follow the path in regular waterproof hiking boots. Saw plenty of hikers with snow shoes and plenty without. It was fine without. The views on this hike are absolutely insane. Honestly the waterfall was great, but frozen over, but the valley and mountain views are top notch. We are here on vacation from Florida and have so far done 3 hikes (Adam's Canyon and Waterfall Canyon near Ogden) and this was our favorite of the three. Unbelievable.

What a sunset spot! You have to check out this arch close up it is really something. Walk isn’t too tough and trail is easy to follow with trail markers along the way. Toke us about 40 minutes to the top and 30 mins on way down. Was pretty busy even in mid November but a most do if in arches. Plenty of parking and toilets at the trailhead.

One of the most popular hikes in the park and there is a reason. It’s a pretty high elevation gain over the 1.5 miles so take your time as you are going up. Plenty of places to stop and rest along the way. Once you are almost to the top there is a pretty small ledge that you walk around so those with heights might have some issues. Once you make it it is all worth it. The view is amazing and it is as spectacular as all the pictures you see of it. Make sure you take water and headlamps if there is any chance you are coming down in the dark. Kids loved it!

Beautiful hike, shaded in the summer, open to the sun in some spots in winter.
Small bits of the path are icy/slushy right now, but most of it is nice fluffy fresh snow. Took about 3 hours up and back.

Nice moderate trail with some switchbacks to get up to the rock. Some benches have been put up at the top, which makes for a nice place to stop and rest. The trail is especially breathtaking in the fall. Accessible all year long. The trail is also really fun in the winter with the snow. Lots of people hike and bike the trail though, so watch out for bikers!

Really nice little trail. Pretty much a scenic walking path that follows the path of the river. Especially nice in the fall.

Hiked this trail in September to see the sunrise. It was one of the most spectacular places to hike! Would rate it as a moderate one, however we got to the parking lot at 6:40 and wanted make it to the top until the sunrise, so we had to do it really fast. It took us about 20 minutes in a very fast pace, which made hike quite difficult. If you are in no rush, then it can be very enjoyable experience. Would recommend doing it before sunrise because, first - it is not crowded and second - not hot at all. We were coming down around 9 am and it was already very hot, a lot of people just turned around on half way because of that and all that was in end of September.

It long hike but wrath it amazing look step is different not go with stoker please walk is fine but be peasant you cane make we love it going is little bet change but back it good must go

Beautiful sunset and night photography opportunities. You can walk behind the arch and then to a lower level to avoid a lot of the tourists.

Some steep inclines on the final stretch but worth it. We did it with kids 3, 6 and 8, and they enjoyed the trail

I brought our family from Virginia, an 18,16,and 13 year old and my own kids 11,9,7,and 5 year old. Good snow, icy at the top. Beautiful at the top, good for all ages.

Great hike! We went on 9/18 and the trail was still perfectly fine to hike. Some points had snow and were a little slick, especially right in the beginning, but we were just fine in regular hiking shoes. The falls are partially frozen and gorgeous! The trail was not very busy either. We brought our dog, and she had a blast. This trail is rated moderate with some up and down hill, but probably pretty easy for more experienced hikers.

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

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

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.

A nice gentle slope and walk through the woods until the last 150m.

You have to walk across the stream, skipping over stones and logs. The last 35m is a scrambling rock climb, pretty treacherous, so unless you have good climbing skills and suitable footwear, don’t even try it. If it’s been freezing it’s a no-go as the rocks are quite smooth and impossible to scale. Nice cave with waterfall at the top following the climb.

Just the right amount of everything!

I loved the trail. It was lightly trafficked mostly with hikers and a couple of mountain bikers. Got some amazing views from the top and also experienced the snowfall on my way up.

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!
