Trail was alright, heavily trafficked so we decided to only go to the landscape arch.

This is a short steep trail where you can see the Delicate Arch in the distance.

Lots of reward for one trail. Looking back I don’t know if I would have done the primitive portion unless you want the extra miles or just to say you did the whole loops. Still beautiful but nothin g you aren’t already exposed to on the earlier parts of the trail. Go early, got to the lot at 7:30 and while there was still parking had to sit around and wait for lots of inconsiderate groups standing around right in front of the arches. Took me 4 hours, being lots of water.

Amazing!

Extremely beautiful and remarkable. Many archea and other interesting rocks. The landforms here are very unordinary.

Absolutely loved my time here! It’s a beautiful oasis worth the wait and effort to go!

Gorgeous trail. It takes you down, so you can walk among the hoodoos.

I hiked only portions of this, rather than the entire trail because I was deviating to other trails on the same trip. The miles of this trail I hiked had me pass Emerald Pools, which was lovely. I also thought the view was incredible once you pass Emerald Pools, where I was looking down, through the valley.

Hike was great and trail well marked. Definitely remember it is an impacted 26 mile venture from the turn off. You will encounter a few deep perpendicular ruts as well as pockets of loose sand along the way. Be careful as a tow truck runs up to a $1000 according to the clerk at the nearest convenience store. Trail well worth the effort.

Awesome trail beautiful views and not to bad of a hike

It was hot going but the water was cold. Was a great hike.

Excellent hike! Trails were pretty well marked. We started at 8:00 and had good cloud cover for the first 3/4 of the trip. The last 1/4 was full sun and 87 degrees. Overall we had a great experience!

This might well be the most beautiful view I have ever seen. If you can walk up an incline, hike this trail before you die.

not great for photos

It was just ok, you're really doing this for the petrified trees. I had already seen them in the Black hills so this was nothing special.

You need to do the optional loop to see a decent amount of the petrified wood which is indeed rather steep.

Beautiful hike! Did it with my 60 year old mother in about an hour and 15 minutes. Absolutely stunning.

Fun trail, really busy in the beginning, very narrow in some places.

Very nice hike. Just be prepared with plenty of water as it gets hot out there.

Breath taking place. So many beautiful sights

So interesting! The interpretive guide is helpful to really appreciate this unique hike. It is fairly easy, and worth the time. We were alone on the trail which was an added bonus. The state park is a pleasant spot to rest for lunch by the reservoir- the Frogs sounded great.

Did this on 25Jul18. (5th time I've done this) Waited out a thunderstorm and the trail had puddles in some spots. A portion of the trail close to the falls was washed out and there are a couple of rocks to hop on in the river, to get across. Also falls were fuller than I've ever seen them. Roaring, really. Amazing as always hike.

Awesome fall, supai permits required
Unless you are hiking in from the Colorado river.

A decent hike but the view is slightly underwhelming. Going back in the morning to hike the Delicate Arch Trail instead of just the viewpoint.

Best view of Yosemite falls in the park IMO

We forgot to record the entire drive, but we started at the toll booths in Springdale and went all the way to the eastern edge of the park (one way). One worry I had was would our Volvo with bikes mounted on top be OK to go through the tunnels, and they were. Do keep in mind that the tunnels have a height restriction and bigger vehicles like buses or RVs may need an escort. The escort may cost extra, but otherwise there are no additional charges to go through the tunnel (without escorts). We did not do any hiking, but did stop at a few viewpoints to soak in the scenery, so we were in the park about 3 hours. It was a beautiful day and not too many people. As it had rained earlier in the week (with flash floods and rock slides), we think many may have avoided the park today (July 14). But as all of the roads were open, we had a pleasant drive through. Hope to come back again for some hikes!

You get to see a lot of great arches on this trail. Make sure to go the extra little trails to Navajo and Partion Arch - seems like some folks didn’t even notice the signs were there. The second half of the hike (the primitive portion) is definitely less crowded, but doesn’t have as many sites along the way. Only do it if you really want a longer hike, because it can get ridiculously hot towards the end.

Trail is relatively easy with very little elevation gain, but be prepared for sandy trails. Can be very hot and sunny at midday. Falls are gorgeous and a great place for a wade to cool down!

Definitely start early to beat the heat! Coming back was rough. They mean what they say about the water, drink it all! Some of the most amazing views I have ever seen and up close and personal. Crawling through these sandstone slots was one of the coolest things I’ve ever done. Highly recommend. We want to do Zebra Slot next time!

Side note, the road was over an hour driving in from the Escalante side of Hole in the Rock Rd, and well maintained but more comfortable with a high clearance vehicle for sure !
