Great little nature trail that takes you on a steep climb to the cave, great overlooks from above the cave, with a little bit of boulder climbing.

We tried to go hiking but all of the trails were flooded. It didn't say anything about it on the park website. so if you're driving any sort of distance, I would suggest to call the park if it has been raining a lot. Other wise, the fall colors on that area are gorgeous.

Eisenhower is a great place to hike. Scenery is very pretty along the way with several lake views along the trail. There are restrooms at multiple points near the trail. Also picnic tables. On 11/4/18, much of the trail was very muddy due to recent rains.

Beautiful hike! The road down to Kyles Landing is rough but saw several cars that made it. We had some water flowing so the waterfalls were running. This is a physically demanding hike if you are not in shape. At one point the trail splits, one goes along the creek bed and on goes up and is higher up but follows along the creek. Going to the Eye of the Needle is not for someone afraid of heights. You will use ropes to scale straight up 20-30 feet and then another section at a step angle where you will rope the rest of the way to the top before going through the tunnel to get to the Eye of the Needle. Will be back to do it again!

Very nice hike along the river. Several waterfalls. Was closer to 6 miles and took 3 hours. A bit more technical hike with rocks and some slippery parts.

Good trail with not much traffic if you go early morning. Couple of spots that may be difficult for those less mobile.

I'm writing this mainly to warn anyone wanting to run it soon (October 23, 2018 today) that the trail from Trail Marker 1 to TM 2 goes into the Lake right now. You can go from TM 3 to the north. These markers are on the map the person in the fee both will give you. Most of the trail is muddy, now, but would be pretty runnable if we had not had so much rain lately. Roots and rocks, but runnable. The northernmost part of the trail, the loop, is in and out of campgrounds and I didn't care for it too much but I still enjoyed myself and got a decent run in by hitting the mostly deserted park road for the last 1.5 miles I did back to my car.

We went at the end of the day so we could catch the sunset through the arch. It was beautiful and most people had left by that time so we felt like we had it to ourselves. Just take a headlamp or flashlight so you can make it back safely. The trail is well marked. Loved this hike!

awesome sites to see! Tough spots for sure, but worth every strain. Wear hiking shoes and travel light.

Beautiful, well marked, lots of children and people of all ages. The Corona is amazing!

Great arches! Very crowded and lots of kids on Saturday, so a little hard to keep a steady pace. Worth the trip though! Takes only an hour, including stops.

This trail is pretty awesome and difficult in the sense that you have to pay attention to where you're stepping all the time. Some parts were a bit difficult to maneuver and I didn't even attempt climbing the rope at the end ,but my boyfriend made it up to the top. We went on a Tuesday in September and we were the only ones on the trail the whole time. Keeping that in mind, there are a lot of spider webs when you're the only one on the trail. We will be returning to this trail as it was very interesting.

Beautiful hike! Hike has views of Colorado River, two arches, desert & train tracks. The hike is short and sweet, but does have an area of steep rock with a ladder. If afraid of heights or unable to climb well, may not be trail for you! The top is beautiful though and I highly recommend if physically capable. Bring lots of water! Doggos everywhere and lots of places to sit around arch.

Beautiful trail with fun features including a ladder and a cable assisted mini rock climb. Breathtaking scenery. We went around sunset and it was stunning.

Beautiful trail but if you have a fear of heights or climbing may not be the best choice. You can hike in and stop before difficult areas and still view the arch from a distance. My youngest daughter and I went all the way but husband and other daughter sat at viewpoint about halfway and waited for us.

Love this trail. Beautiful views. Railroad tracks nearby

Very fun hike that gets better and better as you make your way to the arch.

Enjoyable short trail that ends with to lovely arches. Dogs and kid friendly. Enjoy it!

Close to Moab city center. Dog friendly. Had railings on parts where it seems steep. Our dog (and so would other humans) was able to walk around to continue the trail past the ladder. Lots of places to sit out and look at the stars at night. Enough cairns along the trail that even if you did the trail at night with a headlamp/torchlight you wouldn’t get lost.

Hiked this with my daughter and we enjoyed it. A little intense if you’re afraid of heights and going over slanted rock terrain. Magnificent arch!

Great trail for kids and dogs.. Great scenic views.

This is my 3rd time on this trail in the last 4 years and it never ceases to impress! There are some steep parts so wear good shoes. Overall one of the best easier hikes I have ever been on and that is saying something for a fat chick.

Cost: $7 per person.

Need I say more? Other states don't charge money to walk around in nature.

No shade, but beautiful hike!

I hiked this trail and completed back in 2008 I didn’t remember it being as rough as it is. The group I was with had 4 adults and 11 children ranging from 1-14 YO. It is probably be most beautiful trail I have hiked in Arkansas. We were unable to complete it as we came to a point that we felt was just too risky attempt with the children. I personally feel like we lost the trail. I hope to get attempt this again with my children so they can enjoy the scenic views at the end.

Beautiful and worth some initial minor step climbing. Most of the trail is on slick rock and not only marked by green paint marks but also watch for stacks of stones (cairns). The short cable section is an upright, just watch your foot placements. Started out 8am and only saw four others; outbound at the end saw several incoming. NOTE: At the start, you need to pass through two wire fenced areas, crossing the railroad tracks in between. Saw 2 others almost get lost if we hadn’t called them to correct.

Lovely trail, really. Hubs and I never saw anything clearly marking the trail though, so maybe we didn’t really hike this one. I read the reviews and lots of folks say it’s marked, but we seriously only saw one white fence post with red spray paint that said “SLT”. That’s it. I also never saw anywhere to refill water, like another poster mentioned. We did get some beautiful views and pictures.

This is a tough one (for me anyway). Long and lots of ups and downs. 1 full mile was a steady up hill clime. Beautiful sights though. My phone died with 4 miles left to go so map does not show all. It also says its a loop and it is but you must walk the road about 1 1/2 miles to get back to your car.

The arch is spectacular! So nice that it’s a dog friendly trail as well. We went in the middle of the day and it was very hot, but other than that it was great!

We camped at Dogwood campgrounds then jumped the road to start at Cedar Bluff then we took a right to finish the Skyline Trail. Amazingly marked except the last mile or so when it comes to a dead end at the power lines and then you pretty much keep going straight into some over your head grown grass but there is a trail in there that takes you back to the path. Be sure you will have plenty of water with a filter as it is has some pretty steep parts that make you work. We only came across one very nice campground about 4 miles in from Cedar Bluff start. A black bear did end up running us out of our campsite so they are there and please bring bear spray! We also walked the four mile road back to the campsite vs turning around and going back through the trail so keep that in mind also. Enjoy :)
