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.

Great short hike, wonderful views. The history of the area is very interesting. Great visitor centre

What a stunning view. Loved this!

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.

Went on a Sunday and saw maybe 2 other groups on the trail . It’s an incredibly easy hike - the end is sandy but still easy. If you get there before 8am no entrance fee! Amazing views!

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.

THE BEST... do not miss this one. Started at the parking lot and went clockwise. Be sure to do all the lookouts. Views are breathtaking!

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.

I don’t know why this is rated moderate. I’ve done trails rated easy that we’re much harder. It’s a great little hike all the way around one of Monument Valley’s iconic buttes. Most people should be able to do this hike. It’s uphill at the very end with loose sand, but not that hard. Just don’t go in the middle of the day in the middle of summer.

you don't need the GPS , you don't need the map! this is the top bike trail in moab.

Dead Horse should be a stop for everyone!

No shade, but beautiful hike!

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.

Easy scenic drive. 4WD not needed if road is dry.

Not really a specific trail, but you can easily get to the window. A very neat hike that is completely exposed to the elements, so bring plenty of water. Would definitely recommend if you have an hour to take a short hike.

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!

Fairly easy trail and was nice in the evening. Fairly busy but spread out with certain sections of the hike. Great view at the end made it completely worth it.

Very easy and insanely scenic! Took my pup and we both enjoyed all there was to see! Great for all levels and families as long as you keep an eye out for the hoodoos that guide the general direction. I took all the spur trails to the various overlooks- recommend that too

Great hike that gives a full tour of the state park and the canyon below. Definitely do one or two of the overlooks. Didn’t see anyone else on the trail. No shade, bring water!

Yesterday (Labor Day) Krishna finally got a chance to mountain bike in Moab (YIPPEEE!)... So I did a 5 mile rim trail hike in Dead Horse Point State Park! :D <3 My review below and tons of pics.

If you have limited time at the park, I'd suggest to go to the Dead Horse viewpoint at the end of the park road, then walk on the west rim trail and see all the view points you can. If your time is even more limited go to Meander Point ... that one is the shortest offshoot from the trail and has spectacular views of striped red cliffs looking down into the canyon. The east rim all pretty much have the same view (the same view from Dead Horse Point). But, the viewpoints on the west side are all very different from each other, and it's quite possible you can see in to Canyonlands, which is just breathtaking. Also, from my recording (link below), I did not take the entire loop, and clicked 4.9 miles and 640 ft elevation gain. All trails says the loop trail is 5 miles at 908 feet. Their recording seems to be ONLY for the RIM TRAIL and no viewpoint walks. They do add quite a bit of extra walking. I did not have enough time to go to the Big Horn viewpoint. I hope to do this loop again with more time on my hands because I kind of rushed through all the viewpoints, spending only a few minutes at Meander (I'd love to have spent time just relaxing) and about 20 minutes at Rim Overlook. Honestly, there's just so much to see and be awed at in each viewpoint. I wish I had taken my binoculars! Yes, as others mentioned, the trail is well marked (maybe too well marked) with cairns. All but a few were helpful. A few got me off track!!

I started the trail about 8am on Labor Day, finishing by about 11:30am. On the East Rim, I saw only 2 people at the visitor center. I then only saw one person at Rim Overlook by the time I almost finished the trail. It was blissful! It was cloudy for all but the last 45 minutes, which made the walk very peaceful and not that hot. But, do not forget LOTS of water, a few snacks and sunscreen. The sun is more intense than it appears, even if it IS cloudy! (Note as far as my recording is concerned, I had good cell signal all on the east side of the trial I walked, but it was spotty to non existent on the west side until Kayenta Campground.)

Great moderate trail. The cairns were in good shape and the markings easy to follow. Beautiful views.

Beautiful views of the canyon. Not many people on the trail at all.
