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

Wow! This is a fantastic short hike! We were running out of daylight and only had time to hike down to the bridge and back out of the canyon. The hike is interesting —ladders, steps and railings all help to manage the descent and the climb out. The bridge is huge and beautiful, especially in the evening light. I wouldn’t describe this as a hard hike, but it is not for inexperienced hikers who may not be skilled at finding trails. . It’s only 2 miles (with a little extra exploring) and the ascent is broken up by flat stretches.

We took our eight kids on this hike and had a great time. The kids loved playing hide and seek in the rock formations. Highly recommended.

Very nice. The drive and the hiking were facilitated by it being pretty dry and uncrowded. I went down to the confluence and turned right, but quickly encountered pools of water that I could not navigate without getting my feet wet. So I went back the other way, towards the "less interesting" section, which was completely dry. After a while, you emerge from the slot canyon into a very nice landscape of colorful towers and cliffs. The fencing provides a hint that you are not supposed to wander around over in that direction.

I did not clamber down the funky logs at the infamous drop and instead took the bypass that heads up over the rocks to the right immediately before you enter the slot canyon. Getting back down into, and out of, the slot at the other side is not exactly easy, but it was a safer bet than the risk of falling 8 feet.

Short hike with a great view. Worth the effort.

Heavily trafficked; however the view at the end and near the end is awe-inspiring

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

Beautiful to visit early morning with the rising sun!

Easy trail. Frozen waterfall.

A classic. If your expectations aren't too high, then it's worth it!

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

Snagged a wilderness permit and we did the 16 miles down... sleeping overnight at campsite 10. Was amazing!!

Boring. Easy.

Boring. Easy.

love this hike.
take water with you.
be ready to carry small children .yes seriusly dont get fooled by some other reviews ... :-) under age 5 is a hard and long hike for litle ones.
keep eye on children some pople thinks they dog dont need a leash and dogs run front off them by a half a miles

This trail is GREAT!! Recommend going early, as soon as the sun rises, though you could go a bit earlier as the easiest part of the trail is in the beginning, to beat the crowds. I went shortly after sunrise and met tons of people on the way back.
DEFINITELY worth hiking!! Very dog friendly

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.

We enjoyed this trail. Wonderful view at the end and a distant petroglyph in the middle.

Awesome hike this time of year. The aspens are changing and the golden leaves cover the ground, most were full of frost even at 4pm! I wasn’t expecting the trickle of water that comes out of the rock at the base of the arch. What a surprise! Well worth the drive out of Moab.

Cool and nice. Water is very urgent and fast. Fell down a couple times.

My wife and I did this hike November 6, 2018. We were surprised, after walking a bit to find a couple nice slot canyons. Once we arrived at the confluence, we turned left on Buckskin for approx mile. It was pretty cool with tall slots. we then turned around and walked the other way until we hit water

Highly recommend this trail. Getting isn't bad, but about 8 miles off of 89.

My wife and I did this today with our 2 year old and had an amazing time! We made it to morning glory bridge which was beautiful. Easy going all around but a few scrambles and river crossings that took some time with our 2 year old, great to have a few people there if taking kids for safety. Will be back!

Nice relaxing hike to the falls. Stayed cool the entire time, falls were beautiful. Not as pretty now that all the leaves have fallen from the trees.

This was a nice trail. It was colder so there weren’t many people at all. It goes over a wash and up to a fork where you can see a waterfall (no waterfall right now) and the mossy cave. The cave is certainly mossy and there’s an info sign that says it’s covered in icicles in the winter. The trailhead is fairly easy to find. Go east on 12 and around one of the bends is a parking area with a sign and a little shack.

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!

Great easy hike for the family.
Deer In the valley and fish in the creek!
Great color on the walls with the afternoon sun.

Hiked on 11/3/18. This was an amazing trail that was 6.5 miles according to my girlfriend’s Garmin watch. It took us right under 3 hours while taking breaks at the nature guide spots. (Nature guide is found in brown sign in box 10/10 recommended picking one up as it points out many cool things). This hike was beautiful the entire way and had to stop many times just to take in the view. It was a very comfortable hike -warm in the sun, cool and refreshing in the shade (which there was a lot of). This all sand trail was easy to walk and came to a beautiful waterfall. Walk to the far right side of the waterfall to gaze at the hanging gardens, if you look closely you can see where the water is seeping from the rocks/ hanging gardens.

While in this region we combined Devils Garden (down Hole in the Rock Road - just drive down the road and can explore Devils Garden for as long as you want - we took 30 minutes there), and Grosvenor Arch (in Cannonville which is on the way to Calf Creek if coming from Kanab. Took 30 minutes to drive to off of the main road and 25 to explore - you can drive up to it)
