Fabulous hike. I really enjoyed it in the Winter. I did a Google Earth trail while I was here so if you want to check it out virtual like you can see it on my blog www.shaunasadventures.com or in Google Earth. I was grateful for whoever painted the green rectangles on the trail to Mark the path. Brilliant! Made it super easy to follow the trail. Definitely had to watch for ice. Normally I would put my crampons/Spikes on if a trail has ice, but it had more areas with no bare rock that it was easier to detour around the ice. Arches were magnificent! Loved it!

Spike Hiked up on New Year's day. snowshoes are not necessary. packed in Euro sleds to come down. this was a riot. sometimes the trail was too narrow, rocky or steep for the sleds, so we would pick them up and walk a bit. super fun day!

AMAZING! This is much more fun and spectacular than Delicate arch. Quiet trail, awesome views, and the arch is jaw dropping. Exploring around the arch makes your feel like a little kid! DO THIS HIKE! Again, MUCH better, in my opinion, than Delicate Arch.

It's a steep hike that offers really cool views of the Salt Lake Valley. Not one of my favourites as there's no waterfalls, rivers or lakes to look at. It is doable in winter and I enjoyed myself over all, but it is exhausting fighting all that snow and it delays you. Make sure you have more time than you think you need before sunset. It's dangerous with light-hearted sliding down the steep, slick trail.

Beautiful hike. Got very hot even at 9 am in July. But was well worth it.

I did the rim trail part - easy and great views. January so some snow and ice but manageable. I tried hooking onto the mill creek trail but it was covered in ice and snow - okay to hike maybe. But no way I could run it.

We did this hike today, it’s was absolutely beautiful, sunny day and blue skies above the inversion, the trail is well packed all the way to the top, you need only spikes and maybe poles, we carried butt sleds and it was so much fun on the way down

Beautiful in the winter. Went up on JAN 10, trail was well packed for most of the route but was a little spotty in the last quarter, no problems just using crampons and poles. All and all took about 4.5 hours.

This trail is wonderful. It’s a little challenging with some mildly steep rock to traverse before you get to a more flat path, but this just adds to the experience in my opinion. Both arches are pristine and Corona Arch is one of my favorite hikes I’ve done so far in Moab, if you’re looking for a place to go during the shutdown this is your hike! It took my group about two hours to complete this with plenty of stops for photos and sitting to enjoy the winter sun - this is definitely not crowded in the winter!

A great hike to see some arches during the shutdown

Great hike with lots to see - 2 Arches and a cool side canyon
Best views of Corona Arch were on the far side looking back
Hike had a short ladder and 2 cables to assist hikers over steeper sections of slick rock
Great for all ages

amazing!!! the views were unreal, the arches are impressive and breathtaking, and the hike was very fun.

not a super challenging hike- even in the snow and slush. crampons helped big time; those rocks are so slippery. slight up hill climb to get to the challenging parts with the ladder and metal rope, then pretty flat till you get to the arches.

maybe this trail is more dog friendly without snow but i’m still not sure how my lab managed to get up past the ladder area and the first initial climb with the metal rope. pretty terrifying to see him climb up and down, but he managed. wouldn’t have tried that had we known just how steep it was!

if you have a truly strong, adventurous, fit dog, or a dog you can carry, go ahead. otherwise, you’ll be turning back before seeing anything really cool.

Easily my favorite trail in the park. I hiked this with my pup two weeks ago and loved it! It’s pretty easy and not very far distance wise. There are so many places to stop and take pictures of the views. The only downside is that we lost the trail and wandered a bit(not marked super well and most the ground was snow covered). I would hike this again in warmer weather!

Great trail! I did it on jan. 6th so plenty of snow. The trail was packed so you dont really need snowshoes but it makes it pretty slippery if you dont have spikes/chains or poles although we managed without either. The snow is up past my knee off the side of the trail so slipping is not advised XD The lakes totally frozen and covered in snow but theres still a beautiful view of the valley

Did this hike a few days ago, the trail was compacted down for the most part. Wish I had microspikes or trekking poles, but it was still doable without. Definitely do this on a clear day if you can. It was cloudy when I did it, but still gorgeous. Took about 2 and a half hours to get to the top and a little over an hour to get back down.

Nice little hike, busy. Lots of cross country and snow shoes but you don't have to have those as the snow is packed down. Parking is a bit of a nightmare.

Great hike today, snow was packed hard until the top. Spikes and poles helped a lot. Lake is frozen at the top - didn’t see any moose. 3.5 hours up and down

Fun trail, the climb from 191 might be one of the best parts, most 4x4 should be able to make it from 191 easy, most vehicles could make it from 313, we only saw 2 other vehicles on our drive thru. Easy hikes and lots of spots for pictures. If u do it in the winter, be careful of ice, long fall if ur vehicle slides.

Magnificent views, was crowded when we went in Jan, but that might have been caused from the closure of Arches due to the Gov shutdown. Easyish hike, first part's the hardest, the. cruise till u see the arch. It has a ladder and a couple of steel cable guided spots to get under the arch.

We used smaller snowshoes on the way up. They helped with grip a lot. We regretted not just using crampons though. The trail is packed down and we took the snowshoes off and pretty much ran back down. If you do it in the winter I’d make sure to do it on a clear day. Still beautiful views. Bring some trekking poles.

Very pretty hike. Did it a few days ago and it was snowy and slippery!!! Have traction and watch footing past the first cable and after the cable ladder. Looks a little sketchy there in the ice and cold. Beautiful arches!

This was an easy hike with a beautiful arch at the end. There was one small part that was very steep and we needed to hold onto the cable and one part with a short ladder.
We liked this better than Arches National Park!

We did this wonderful hike on a cold (25-38 degrees) but sunny day. It was all other hikers say— interesting and not too hard with cables and a ladder. Some other hikers we ran into thought it was challenging but worth it. We were very glad to have micro spikes. Others around us with boots or tennis shoes had a very hard time on the slippery rock.
The arch is beautiful; one resident said it was his favorite, even compared to the ones in Arches National Park. Go!

This trail is incredibly scenic the entire way. Part of the trail was more difficult with foot-holes and a rope and steep in some areas. Overall not a difficult route however! Did not take a long time to hike in which was nice.

I was wanting to go to Arches and hike up to delicate arch, but thanks to the government shutdown, I had to change my plans. Thankfully I found this trail that isn’t federally owned. It did not disappoint at all. Magnificent views. The arch was glorious!!

Hiked part of this trail from the Grandeur Peak trailhead at the Churchill campground on New Years Day. The snowy views were beautiful and with most of the trail in the sun, it was not too cold. No need for snowshoes or spikes, the trail is packed down, only icy in small spots.

Great views, a few difficult spots for this Florida girl, definitely worth your time!

I loved this trail, even though it's not one where you're getting scenery all along the way. I just happen to enjoy walking among the pinion. I would rate it as Easy, it's well marked and the rocks are easy to get around. We did it on Dec 31 so the temperature was great, though a bit windy. A scarf would be good to bring along. Curious dogs got a snootful of cactus thorns but they were fairly easy to pick out.

Beautiful hike with an amazing view at the end! Mostly sand and sturdy rocks, but it's an easy trek. Loved that I could bring the pups!
