Great hike with spectacular views at the end. This was one of the easiest hikes we did in the Big 5, there is an uphill section and a few large steps up but very accessible. I would consider this an easy hike or a moderate walk.

I'm fat and out of shape... thought I was going to have a heart attack... but, I DIDN'T! I made it to the arch! My husband had both knees replaced 13 months ago and HE made it too!

Great short hike with a nice view at the end. Very busy, however.

My favorite place in Arches

Did this hike over the weekend ,it’s the second time, still as fun and beautiful as the first time. Usually there are other hikers but the trail is wide enough to pass, also the incline killed my husband, he hates hiking but honestly it’s really not that bad. Very easy in and out hike and something fun for the family or by yourself! I recommend it and think you’ll love it just as much as I do!

on Weeping Rock Trail

4 days ago

Super easy. We went later in the evening and sat under the rock. It was like sitting on a porch on a rainy day watching the sun go down. Very peaceful

Great hike - we had 5 little ones (ages 5-7) in tow and there are some mildly hairy parts but overall the entire group loved the hike and the views!

on Delicate Arch Trail

6 days ago

great hike. Took us 1hr 45 min and that was with a lot of photo stops.

What an amazing trip up to Blanche today. The trail is hard packed all the way to the top. Snow shoes not needed to the lake but spikes are highly recommended. The sun was out and no wind. Even lugged up some ice fishing gear and landed 5 browns in only 20 min. Nothing above 10”. The action is fast due to lack of food right now I’m sure. The ice was about 4 feet deep and plenty safe. We head lumped early, but the trail was busy on our way down. Everyone was really respectful and nice and I was glad to see many people enjoying the amazing day. Happy trekking

Such a great hike! Not too difficult, beautiful terrain, spectacular views, good for kids (maybe 7 and up). Don't miss the parking lot! If you're approaching from the west....turn right immediately out of the tunnel! It's a little difficult to turn around if you miss it and you can't get into the lot if going the other direction; you'll have to park along the narrow road. Shade is scarce so go in the morning if it's summer.

Words don’t do it justice. Amazing!

Super easy trail. First hike we did in Zion in October 2017. Views are astounding.

Great easy trek if you are visiting Zion in the off season and still want to get a great vista without the snow climbing. Very easy hike in about half a mile with a fun bridge to cross and a jaw dropping scenery once you reach the end. It’s about a mile round trip, good easy activity.

on Grandaddy Basin

9 days ago

The trail is a little steep and rocky at first, but this is a great hike with beautiful lakes. There’s a fair amount of traffic between the trail head and Grandaddy lake, but once you’re in the basin, the trails are easy going, and it’s a lot less busy.

Went up this trail 3/4/18 after a really solid snowfall in Big Cottonwood Canyon. Trail visible the first mile and a half or so from others doing some trailblazing, but then everything from there was covered in 2-3 feet of snow. Had to trailblaze with the snow to my hips but so long as you're prepared for that after a big snowfall, you'll be fine! Absolutely beautiful trail even in the winter, everything covered in white. If hiking in deep snow, make sure to check avalanche reports, have correct gear and don't go alone.

Beautiful trail, hiked it last fall and will do it again!

Absolutely stunning. This is a bucket-list worthy hike. Can’t believe it took me so long to get here when it’s so close to home. Really windy today, no longer any snow/ice along the trail.

Awesome hike after a good snowfall. Could get away with hiking it with some good spikes. Didn’t need my snowshoes the entire time. The views were amazing at the top.

This trail is so beautiful so much different terrain. Longer than a mile round trip probably 1.5 but easy!

Went January 2018. Easy, fun, bring spikes as there is a small patch of ice.

The walk up was very slippery. With as many people as they have walking this short hike I would think they could at least shovel this off. The views were nice.

Short hike with beautiful views at the end. Fairly easy for all ages.

Took a weekend trip to Moab to escape busy college life. Planned the roadtrip so that we could get here right at sunset and we couldn't have timed it better! Got there with about 10min before the sun was below the horizon, but still had time for some amazing views. Lost my camera lens cover down the gully, but my friend scooted down to get it back for me. Temperature was perfect, and distance was ideal. Definitely recommend a sunrise/sunset time to avoid the crowds!

Quick, easy hike. Interesting one with lots of variances. Great view

Fun little hike with a lot to see. Did this hike at the spur of the moment on our way out of the park. It was an easy trail but don’t take it for granted. We had already changed our shoes and wished we had our hiking shoe back on. Very cool rock formations up at the observation area.

It's like a ceremonial procession going through raised areas and terraces. The last access passway gives a certain experience of surprise as you approach boarding the rocky walls to the high point where the arch is. Viewing the forms you can imagine the naturalistic forces, winds and water, which shaped the landscape in a formidable "style."
But if it's a windy day as today was you should know that you will be straining particularly your muscles and the gusts will strike your face with sand. This could be taken by many people as a part of the adventure. But it's highly rewarded to come and see this marvel surrounded by a concave harmonic space. The senses of abbys and height, of closure and openness are almost architectural.

We added this short trail on to our day after we did Angel's Landing. It snowed today but it made for a wonderful experience. The hike was an easy but beautiful hike. We are glad that we were able to see it.

Just happened to be there in a day that wind gusts of over 20mph. It didn’t seem to stop anyone from going. Beautiful views, courteous hikers.

Go earliest in the morning as possible! 1) to get parking 2) to avoid the mass crowds of tourists and 3) to avoid the scorching sun - if going in early summer, it can be 90 degrees already by 10am. Very beautiful, a good hike, but too many people. Don't forget your water, don't forget to check out the petroglyphs, and don't be afraid to explore a little more off the path. Worth seeing once to say you've been there ;)

The red castle really is worth all the hype. The trail is pretty level and never steep, but the trail surface was trash from all the horse traffic, and really wore my feet out, so wear good shoes. There were moose along the lake. When we went the last weekend in August, it rained for a little bit but it was fine. There were also about a couple hundred sheep being run late at night from east red castle down the valley so that was... interesting. You’ll also pass lots of cows on your way there and the trail appears to be more popular with horse packers than backpackers. So it was more like the High Uintas Farm than a wilderness... still worth it to camp under the red castle.
