Sooooo many people....

Best arch in the national park! And the hike wasn’t as hard as some may say. Just make sure you start early enough to beat the heat and avoid crowds. We started at 7 am and that was the perfect time. I wouldn’t recommend starting this hike midday; it should honestly be closed around 11 am - 4 pm because that heat can be dangerous!

Fun trail with three distinct sections. Just be careful, sign at trailhead lists it as “1.5....one way.” Quickly read it and assumed it was mileage for out and back (like normal...). Was in for a slightly longer trip than planned. Lots of groups complaining about water very early on and resting in any shade they could find. Also lots of little kids with no water and barely any clothing/protection. Plan appropriately, it’s lots of sun and decent climbing for families.

I hiked this trail starting around 10am before it got too hot. It was pretty steep and I had to stop and catch my breath a few times. There were a lot of people in the same boat. The view from the arch was well worth the hike.

Very worthwhile walk to see delicate arch. It was super hot so wear a broad rimmed hat and bring plenty water. There are some shady areas under trees and rocks on the way up but it's 95% exposed. Terrain is varied and includes walking up a rock.... not a problem if it's dry. Great views at top. We took some time to enjoy view before returning down. We stopped by to see the petroglyphs.

My first hike and it was magical! Me and my 2 friends went past the waterfall to a cave above it and could see the entire valley! I would recommend this to anyone.

Amazing

Very beautiful. I saw stars here at night, but it's really hard to find the way in the dark.

A must see in arches and Moab. Take plenty of water. Very hot and busy with people all day long. The hustle and bustle of all the people almost makes it more exciting in this case though. Not as negative as when I see lots of people on other trails I do.

Great summer hike in Vegas area

Totally worth it! Bring 2 liter of water with you in the hot summer.

Nice trail!

Delicate Arch was amazing to view and it was definitely worth the hike! Bring a lot of water and make sure you look at the other scenery on the way up and down. It’s breathtaking.

I did this hike with my husband and our labrador. Its a lovely moderate hike. I there are some areas (with the switchbacks) that it is hard to see the trail and pretty rocky, but you will not get lost. The falls are a beautiful spot to rest and enjoy the view.

Definitely go as early as you can, the crowds are insane. Arrived at the park at 8am, left about 10:30. It’s a beautiful uphill climb to the arch, with little shade. At 8am in early August the heat wasn’t bad, but definitely bring water. There’s a line of people waiting to pose in the arch, so it’s near impossible to get a snap of it without some strangers, but still worth seeing.

Bring lots of water! I did it in the middle of the day in 100+ heat but it was definitely worth it. It’s either up or down.. you barely get flat land while on this trail. I did it in my Chacos and they were the perfect shoe for this hike. The scenery up the entire trail is beautiful. But there is little to no shade so don’t forget water!!’n

Challenging and fun.. very little shade, but I knew it would given it is Vegas.. Trail isn’t marked too welll...

I did this hike with my almost two year old. I carried her some of the way. Up by the waterfall it gets a little tricky with a little one as I didn’t want her to fall or me fall while helping her. It was a great hike though. I would do it again.

This short hike is more than worth it for the amazing view of the arch! The other views from the lower parking lot don’t even come close. There is a bit of climb that might be challenging if you aren’t physically fit and it can be very hot in the summer, but bring water and take your time. Totally worth view at the end!

Nice little huff if wearing a babe. Would recommend using trekking poles if you’re wearing a kid carrier as there are a lot of loose rocks and can be a little treacherous on the way down.

I hiked this trail in October 2017, it didn't seem like it would be a tough hike since it was fairly short so I had to do it. It was a lot harder than I expected but that had more to do with the fact that I had surgery on both knees less than 5 months prior, had just stopped smoking about 8 months prior and it was the middle of the day. It took me over an hour to reach the top but it was well worth it. I might recommend doing it early in the morning, wear a hat, and take plenty of sunscreen and water, there is no shade.

Great exercise. I recommend going in the morning so the switchbacks are in the shade.

Go early! We got there at 7:00 am. Uphill to the arch but worth it! Bring water if you are going in summer.

Extremely hot here in June, even the wind felt like a hair drier. You don't really need to hike the whole way as shown on the map here, in fact, the parking lot is directly at the beginning of the canyon and the Natural Bridge is perhaps 10 or 15 minutes up the trail. I still enjoyed the short hike though

hard to describe the beauty here once you make the climb and get close to the arch. go early as when we were walking out today at 815 am the was an army of people heading up.

The first half was easy. And very enjoyable. the second half the trail pretty much disappeared. loose rocks and scrambling. the long slope to the top was very boring and dull. it's a very hard walk. after I was done I could have kicked myself and should have done more Scenic hike. but I made it to the top.

amazing! ❤️

Stunning views from all sides when you get to the arch. I have a bum knee and was still completely fine on this hike. Took us a little less than two hours round trip with a 30-40 min stop at the arch.

We loved this hike. It is definitely worth going to the top to see the caves and a very small waterfall. I think it may be longer then the 2.5 miles posted, more like 5 round trip but I didn't track it.
