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

Pretty middle hike, some stairs but other then my that smooth. Beautiful views, must so you can see both sides of the canyon at the same time!

A nice view overlooking the canyons. Easy hike

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

It's awesome! Not really a hike, but great views

Part of the moab marathon. It was alright, but there might be more "grand" hikes around.

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

Not very exciting. I think there are nicer views for sunrise/sunset

Not the best, but you can climb on the rock facing the arche and get a better view

I think this is my favorite. Of course, doing the whole circuit is worth it.

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.

More moderate than hard - I’m carrying a fair bit of excess baggage and found this walk ok - defo 5 stars

Nice walk at a nice arch - lots of options to extend

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.

This hike is really great. I was the only person on the trail today. I found the reviews here to be helpful so I will refrain from writing too much. My only add is why you should go left when you get to the loop. Going in this direction will give you the view of Jeep Arch for much longer and you’ll get the view of the La Sal mountains after you hike over the “saddle”. The saddle does look more intimidating coming from the left, but know that it’s a lot thicker than it appears hiking up to it. Enjoy!

Great for kids and super short adventure hike for all. Slot canyons, Sand and towering arches. You’ll love it.

Great short hike for anyone. The arch is amazing, check it out. We took our 2 year old after visiting nearby Sand Dune arch (easy walk from this one).

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!

One of my favorite trails! Great for dogs. Beautiful canyon. Not too much parking. Multiple shallow water crossings, I recommend hiking in Chacos or Tevas. About 25 mins from town.

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!

Nice hike, especially if you have kids and want something that feels like a hike without being too difficult. Landscape arch is HUGE.

The perfect place to go when your kids need a break. Largely shaded with sand to play in (we brought sand toys), it also has some fun places to explore and climb.

The most amazing place we visited at arches. It's awe-inspiring to be nestled under the huge double arches. There's some not-too-steep rock climbing that our kids loved.

We went with our young kids in 65-70 degree weather. Perfect! The trail is awesome, with some parts like they were lifted from the set of an old western. Before going, we had our kids practice walking single file along an imaginary cliff edge. I'm glad we did for the last stretch by the drop off, because our usually rambunctious kids were well-behaved. The arch is amazing to see, but it's not the most kid-friendly point with drop offs all around. We stayed for about two minutes then turned back.

We went at sunset, and that might be overrated. I'm not sure it was different than any other time of day.

Group of fairly fit 60-somethings made it up no problem. Great scenery on the way as well as the top. Lots of friendly weekend folks. Just one of multiple trails in Arches Nat’l Park.

This is a good intro to the area. We walked this trail at the end of September in midday sunshine with temps nearing 90 with strong winds. We had no trouble following the cairns. I don’t understand why others had a hard time. Hats off to those maintaining them—we found them evenly spaced about 30-40 feet apart where no trail was apparent. A word of caution: whatever the weather in the area, you’ll get it in spades on this hike. You’re traversing completely exposed rock at the highest elevation in the area. Although it was hot we hiked through very strong winds that left me thinking I wouldn’t want to be out there unprepared in extreme weather—you won’t find cover anywhere. That goes for sun exposure as well. That said, we really enjoyed the walk. The trail was fun but I highly recommended heading to the Elephant Hill area for a truly spectacular experience.

Very short and lots of poison ivy on the trail. A bunch of stagnant water at the end of the canyon that’s not really worth hiking too. If you’re just in Moab for a couple of days definitely skip this one. There are much better hikes

Quick and easy day hike with lots of good views and 4-5 water crossings
