Easy, fantastic views, neat biological soil communities along the way. Even after sunrise, Mesa Arch is breathtaking.

short thou steep! worth it .

lovely walk with a nice view...best of the whole family with little kids. love this trail.

Fabulous hike! Best bang for your buck if you're wanting to see as many arches as possible in a day. Some areas could be concerning for hikers who are scared of heights or who aren't sure footed. For the typical hiker, this is a 'must-do' in my books!

Fantastic hike and a great introduction to the Moab area. I always recommend this hike to folks who are unfamiliar with this area as it is extremely easy to find and is a well marked trail. The two arches at the end are just a bonus, the scenery is equally as stunning! Be wary that there is a small ladder and somewhat of a "climbing" scramble at one point, but nothing that should deter a typical hiker. Enjoy!

Really fun short hike!

Beautiful

An absolute blast with kids!!! Our girls are 6 and 9, they couldn’t stop smiling and laughing. Renting dry gear is a must. Try to go early in the morning to avoid crowds.

Loved this hike around Arches. You go on side excursions/trails that will take you to eight arches total if you follow the whole trail. Every Arch was unique! We paired this with the Devils Garden Loop for a full day of hiking.

Did this with a 5-year-old, and he was THRILLED with the two short chained areas and the little ladder. The views are awesome and it was way less crowded than in the park. (We went around 8 AM on a Saturday.) Hike beyond the arch and around the bend for jaw-dropping views.

Beautiful and busy

We did the entire primitive loop. It was a fun hike. There was some minor scrambling, but nothing too difficult. I thought we would see more arches on the primitive loop, so that was the only disappointment for me. But overall it was great and I highly recommend it for anyone in average shape who enjoys going beyond the normal hiking trails.

Great views. Best to go early in the morning. Hardly anyone was there and the morning sun lights the arch like a ribbon of orange.

We only was able to see the upper part , the lower hike was canceled because was to windy and rocks were coming down.
The experience was amazing, the whole canyon is Soooo beautiful. Be prepared to be surrounded with a lot of other hikers, it is challenging to take pictures and we got rained with sand because of the wind. Cover your camera from the sand.

Fantastic hike. Certainly moderately strenuous, and there are a couple spots that require some basic scrambling. If you have someone in you group that is terrified of heights this is probably not the best hike for you as the trail takes you very close (feet) from sheer cliffs. We were able to complete it even in a wind storm that blew through which had up to 50mph gusts at some points. If you’re going during wind make sure you have a Buff or bandana to cover your face. The wind whips up the sand and dust and it’ll get everywhere! Totally worth doing the whole loop as the views were amazing.

Happy trails!

Good hike, not quite breathtaking like others at Zion, but still a great hike along the river.

It's a beautiful drive, after hiking Angels Landings in Zion and other trails , I needed a break.Thought I need my hiking legs again but just a short walk to the lookout points through the drive, It was amazing.

neat little walk, interesting to find out why/how the rock is weeping (info is on a placard right before you go up the stairs)

far and away our favorite hike of all National parks. Hiking poles are a great help along with neoprene socks, but all the other gear they try to sell you isn't necessary in my opinion. We bought $17 dollar water shoes from Wal-Mart that did the trick, so unless you expect to do alot of water hiking, cheaper can get the job done, plus you have something to keep as opposed to renting. be sure to go up about 2 miles to get to the better parts and begin to leave the masses behind.

Beautiful views from on top of the butte

We went this morning little after 9am. No problem with parking. It was already getting crowded with many hikers. I would suggest to walk to the right and climb the rocks, to get away from crowds, and enjoy the view in quite atmosphere.
Views from the top are amazing and worth it the hike.
There is no railings so keep your kids and dogs near you. They are building new trails and look out.

This is a don’t miss day hike in Arches. Be the first one there in the am to avoid parking and crowd issues. Also do the “loop” portion clockwise to easy some of the difficult spots.

It’s about 45min walk with absolutely amazing rock formations and colors to watch... one of the most enchanted places I’ve seen so far...

Great views, but overran with tourist.. still really neat though!

Cool

Incredible!!!

Short and steep hike and also had cool views out into the valley. This was easy for us and our daughter but is a steeper climb then expected. I did this after dinner so there were very few people, which made it nicer.

Wasn’t very impressed with this trail. The least favorites of the ones we did well in the park. Crowded and nothing exciting to see and just a paved trail.
