Such a fun easy hike and a close little drive in you live in Oceanside/San Diego Drive! Narrow rocks are quite beautiful and a nice getaway from the city!

Did this hike in mid December and it was great- some icy patches along the way at the time but navigable in hiking shoes alone. Beautiful view from the top of the falls!

One of my favorite hike in Tucson. My one year old son and I hike on 12/31 and it was beautiful, lots of flowing water and the falls was beautiful. If you are planning on hiking with a Baby make sure to bring hiking sticks they are very handy when you are coming down hill.

simple loop that takes you to an arch. lovely scenery but wouldn't recommend due to the large crowds.

LOVE this hike all year round. I start bringing my children at age 4. Child back carrier possible but not alone, I'd bring someone to help with the steep areas and climbing down areas for child safety. Not stopping with a decent pace is 1hr 45min from bear canyon trail. Road dead ends - turn left- parking around to the right. HOWEVER this map is showing from sabino canyon. Be smart and bring extra water. July monsoons watch for thunder head clouds and hike back immediately once you see them forming. 7 crossovers. Last 2 are about 15-20 min long each. Possible chance of shoes getting wet when water is high. Bathroom and water fountain are on the road before the main trailhead.

One great hike. Elevation is doable. Scenery is beautiful. About six creek crossings and we did get wet up to our ankles, but it didn’t bother us cause it was a gorgeous day. Would definitely recommend this hike.

Absolutely beautiful, was a perfect adventure to take with two 10 year olds, an 8 and 6 year old!

We had an afternoon to spend outside and I wanted to squeeze in as much of the outdoors as possible. We couldn’t decide which trail to do with in the park, and ended up deciding on the White Dome Trail. I’m really glad we chose that one, because it was very beautiful. It was the prettiest trail out of all the things that we walked along that day. It has really cool Narrows, very interesting rocks and is a loop which is nice. The nice thing is you can just hop in your car and drive to some of the other trails which are very short, so if you spend a whole day in the park, you could theoretically do most of them in one day. We also did the Fire Wave Trail. This was very short but very cool at the end. It was kind of frustrating, because at the beginning of the fire wave trail there were signs asking people to stay on trail, especially asking them not to climb on the fire wave at the end of the trail. Sure enough, as we approached the end of the trail, I couldn’t even get a picture of just the fire wave rock structure because of all the turds climbing all over it. It clearly asks you to keep off because of erosion. I don’t think that people understand that when they step off trail, they cause erosion and can damage or completely devastate vegetation that has taken so long to grow. All they care about is getting their picture on top of a rock. Congratulations, you walked 0.5 miles and got your picture, I hope it’s still there for your children to enjoy. You can just take a picture of the rock without you on it, the focus of the picture is the rock and not you anyway. Anyways, a lot of the other structures in the park you can just drive up to, to observe. We drove up to the Natural Arch Rock, the Atlatl rock, the Beehives and the Elephant Rock and were able to see it all from our car. And of course you can just hop out really quickly to get a closer look, as all of these rock structures are very close to the road and are within short walking distance, i’m pretty sure all of them had a parking lot directly across from the structure where you can park your car. Drive to the east entrance of the park where the elephant rock structure is located and you will see a nice Polaroid frame that you and a friend can stick your head into to get a picture. We were there just as the sun was about to go down and the sky was amazing. Also I would highly recommend driving through the scenic Loop near the west entrance, where the natural arch rock and ATLATL rock are. It has really amazing rock structures. I should also mention that we visited in January so the weather was in the 50s. All the hikes were very easy, however me and my friend are avid hiker is. I would recommend bringing a ton of water if you plan to be there in the summer and maybe plan for less Miles. I’m giving it four stars, and not five because I enjoy a good strenuous climb, and there were none. But it was absolutely beautiful, and I’m glad that we did this, rather than walking around Las Vegas another day

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!

It is an amazing hike. Summer can get HOT, so be sure to bring lots of water. During the winter/spring the water can be a little high at times BUT if the water at the crossings is up, then the views of the waterfalls become even better.

Short, a nice first stretch of the legs after a long drive to the park.

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!

Of all he trails we did today this was my favorite. Easy hike but really spectacular views from every direction & you can wander off in any direction really through the wash which my dog Annie loved

This was a great trail & lots of beautiful scenery.

Super easy...way too short but neat to see

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!

We made the hike Christmas Day, just before a family dinner. Very nice family hike. It is a little steep but not too bad. The youngsters of our group had no problems, but some of the seventy year olds needed a very short break about three quarters of the way up. There was a lot of water, so the falls look great, and very much worth the hike. Once you get to he falls, you are very close to them. That is great for looking at them but not for picture taking. My 70mm lense could not focus on the falls because we were too close. Would do the hike again in a heart beat.

We love this hike. We’re locals and my son works at the park so this is a regular for us. It’s a very popular trail so parking is difficult. Certain times of day changes how the colors look in the rocks. The colors are the most vibrant early in the morning or late afternoon. High noon washes them out.

Super fun! However - it is important to note that from the parking lot, round trip, the hike is 10 miles to the falls, not 7.8 as the AllTrails info indicates. Being plenty of water, wear shoes you’re OK with getting wet, and a hat.

Short but keep ur heart rate up!!!

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!

interesting hike that took me back in time. there are petroglyphs carved into the rocks all along the path and the trail is fairly easy to walk and allows for some exploration as long as one watches out for the local wildlife (snakes!).

Great hike, the trailhead is easy to find. Amazing views

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!
