This trail is great with lots of many loops and has shade. Great climbing points as well. Great hike for little kids since it’s very short.

Relatively easy hike. When you get to the bridge and short of water you can refill your bottle with the water seeping through the rock. Several spots to cool off if you choose to dip into the stream. I did.

My favorite hike of all time! This trail is mentally and physically challenging in that you have to really think about where to place your feet in certain parts. Once the trail became more primitive it was harder to follow the trail. Look for cairns to help stay on the trail!

This hike was truly “as good as it gets”! As other reviewers said, the earlier the better. We got to the park before 7 but the trailhead was about a half hour drive in so we started about 7:30. Ideally, I’d recommend starting even earlier to beat the heat and avoid the crowds. Partition Arch was our favorite and we had it all to ourselves for like 20 minutes. We walked out via the primitive loop, cool views but not as much fun/excitement as the other half. Overall, we spent about 4 hours but by the end everyone was too hot/tired to hike to Pine Tree or Tunnel Arch.

Walked out to see the Indian art panel. Very nice one actually. Very defined. It's worth the walk out here and isn't far from the parking lot. The Wolfe ranch has an interesting history to it too.

One of my favorite hikes now. Even though there is shade bring water when it's hot out. Some minor scrambling but just a pleasant hike with a great cavern at the end. This will be on my to do list each time I visit Moab. Highly recommend.

really east walk off the road , beautiful to see that many arches so close together. Went back at sunset and was so glad I did. A great little trail to take kids on as well. Pretty busy so good early if you can or if you can a sunset view is amazing!

Great hike and a chance to see a whole bunch of arches and pretty amazing views. I would do this one for sure if you have the time. I would go early in the morning to avoid heat and traffic on trails. We started around 6:30 and got a great parking spot and time on trails before overly crowded.

A great little hike, the arch is one of my favorites of the park. Well worth the hike, but go early in summer to avoid the heat, bring water.

Wildlife, wildflowers and yes, poison ivy. I think we successfully avoided the poison ivy. The bridge and area around the bridge, amazing.

This was a great moderate hike, even for the novice hiker. Be sure to start very early, especially when temps will reach 100 in the day. Some rock scrambling, we had someone afraid of heights with us and they did fine. Bring lots of water as well. I’d definitely recommend this hike!

Great hike with beautiful views from all through out the trail. We took main trail to Dark Angel then primitive trail back. It is much harder than main trail but worth it. Really glad we did. It’s got rock sections, sand sections and valley floor sections. We started at 6:30am! A must do in July.

our favorite, most often revisited trail!! crowd seriously thins out after landscape; as you must rock scramble up a fin to keep going. navajo arch is a nice, shady location to stop for a snack. after double o - the trip to the dark angel was neat, but it’s just a big rock. there are some secrets hidden at the dark angel that make it amazing - but you’ll have to figure that out on your own. the primitive trail has FOUR more arches - but it also has sand, semi-steep hills, virtually no shade and DEADLY HEAT. Someone LITERALLY died on this trail this week (7/6/18) BRING TONS OF WATER. go EARLY - don’t be afraid to call it quits.

My wife and I enjoyed this trail. The primitive trail was nice too and gave us some solitude.

Beautiful hike but watch out for the poison ivy and take plenty of water

Time to put signs in Chinese for water requirement. We met at least 6 people without water on our way back (we started at 7 am) and they were hiding in the shade as little as one mile in
Otherwise, probably one of the most beautiful landscapes views in any national park, stunning.

Did this trail with two of our kids yesterday ages 21 and 10. Beautiful scenery but there is an abundance of poison ivy so be careful! There were some parts of the trail that were a tight squeeze on slippery rock but it was very manageable for all of us.

Great hike but I'd recommend doing this when it's not hot. If you go in the summer months, do it EARLY.

06/11 no poison ivy, just beautiful! Went at about 7am and it was a little chilly. Super easy, great starter for the day.

A beautiful hike with a bit of rock climbing included. There is a million dollar view on top. Leave early in the morning to bet the crowds and heat of the day.

Easy hike and worth the stop.

A great hike for a summer day! Able to take the dogs and it’s partially shaded so it wasn’t as hot as other trails in the area. Lots of water crossings, your feet will get wet! Nice scenery with the rock canyons, bushes, plants and stream/river! Be careful, there is a lot of poison ivy but easy to avoid- just be aware.

Total 5.0 miles. I would rate this as easy.

Great trail and hike to double o arch especially the second half which required a little scrambling. We paired this primitive trail loop. Felt this experience was much more enjoyable compared to delicate arch.

Trail signage could be better but few areas are as breathtakingly beautiful. Bring a hat and water up.

Fantastic! Saw all 7 arches and walked at a pretty leisurely pace, taking pictures, stopping to admire each arch. 6 hours with zero rush. Trail becomes more difficult after landscape arch (transitions from paved to scrambling over boulders). Route is relatively well marked. Don’t miss Partition Arch - our favourite (plan to stay here and chill for half hour or more if you have the luxury of time! Very few people - so tranquil). If you are fit and able with good knees and no fear of heights, take the primitive loop back. We saw no one on this part of the trail and it wasn’t that much more challenging then other parts of the loop (note - there was no water crossing on the primitive loop when we went - perhaps check with a ranger in advance).

Great, unique hike and one of my favorites. Started at 5:30 am to beat the heat and crowds. Park is open 24 hours so you can enter at any time and display your park pass as there is no gate attendant in the early hours. There are no strenuous elevation gains but slightly technical at times. There is one area near the beginning of the trail (going clockwise) where you are on top of a "fin". You will see a makeshift ladder to get you down from the fin but DON'T climb down it. Continue walking on top of the fin to the end to find an easy way down.

Awesome hike for a hot day with a great destination. The stream is cold and refreshing. There are small fish and a few crawdads in living in the stream as well. Make sure to take time to try and catch some! It's a blast.

Multiple arch hike. After passing Landscape arch this get interesting. Plan for some climbing but nothing to crazy.

Beautiful hike. Did it at the beginning of June. We tried to start early, around 7:30, but took us a while to get our park pass at the main entrance. They need to figure out how to expedite that a little better. The trail is pretty exposed the whole way, so plenty of sunscreen and water are a must. I had 3 liters and it was enough. Plus a couple small gatorades. We went to dark angel at the end of the loop and came back the same way. Left side with Navajo arch. What an amazing place. Beautiful landscape.

Excellent and part shade was a bonus!!
