I loved hiking this trail. There are multiple creek crossings which make it really dynamic and fun. We made it to the cave, but I believe it goes a bit further than that. Totally worth it !

This was an amazing trail. 5 minute drive outside of the arches visitor center. Not nearly as high traffic as the park. Remarkably beautiful and if you go later into the day (just before sunset) you’ll have the canyon and it’s views to yourself.

Beautiful hike! Hike has views of Colorado River, two arches, desert & train tracks. The hike is short and sweet, but does have an area of steep rock with a ladder. If afraid of heights or unable to climb well, may not be trail for you! The top is beautiful though and I highly recommend if physically capable. Bring lots of water! Doggos everywhere and lots of places to sit around arch.

Such a fantastic hike!! Definitely chilly up at the top with wind so pack layers. Hike has ups, downs, climbing, ladders, etc so prepare if elderly or have children. There were a couple times I had trouble following the trail, but it is well marked by others with the rock towers (look for them!) This hike is so beautiful though and unlike anything I’ve seen inside the national parks. Highly recommend!! According to signs at trailhead, it’s 2.2 miles up & back (total of 4.4) versus what’s on this app. Not sure what is correct!

Beautiful trail with fun features including a ladder and a cable assisted mini rock climb. Breathtaking scenery. We went around sunset and it was stunning.

Beautiful trail but if you have a fear of heights or climbing may not be the best choice. You can hike in and stop before difficult areas and still view the arch from a distance. My youngest daughter and I went all the way but husband and other daughter sat at viewpoint about halfway and waited for us.

Lovely trail! sunset was really nice here

One of the best in Moab area...a local favorite. Bring lots of water and make sure you go to the very end .... where you will see a little wooden sign saying “The End” Being able to watch the rock climbers is an added benefit. Enjoy!!

Love this trail. Beautiful views. Railroad tracks nearby

This trail is amazing.. Waterfalls scenic views and a wonderful arch.. Even a mini cave. Do yourself a favor and hike this trail!!

What a great trail!! Lots of fun. We made it about 3/4 of the way and the kids were tuckered out, so we turned around. Such great views up and down. It was really neat watching the rock climbers at the top of The Cheeto!

Very fun hike that gets better and better as you make your way to the arch.

This trail is really beautiful but very poorly marked... Never did make it to swimming hole I don't think... Fun day regardless.

Enjoyable short trail that ends with to lovely arches. Dogs and kid friendly. Enjoy it!

Close to Moab city center. Dog friendly. Had railings on parts where it seems steep. Our dog (and so would other humans) was able to walk around to continue the trail past the ladder. Lots of places to sit out and look at the stars at night. Enough cairns along the trail that even if you did the trail at night with a headlamp/torchlight you wouldn’t get lost.

Great trail. Well marked. Towers are amazing. Bonus getting to watch rock climbers. Beautiful views throughout.

Hiked this with my daughter and we enjoyed it. A little intense if you’re afraid of heights and going over slanted rock terrain. Magnificent arch!

Great trail for kids and dogs.. Great scenic views.

We had a great hike this afternoon from 1:30-4:30. We didn’t find the“difficult” rating to be as forbidding as expected; all four in our group managed it just fine. The views in all directions are wonderful and the petroglyphs one finds along the high-rocks base (as others have indicated) on the right side just kept getting better and better. We really loved this hike, especially because we had the trail to ourselves much of the time, only encountering a handful of other friendly hikers. The weather was perfect today too—cool, a few clouds, but mostly sunny after morning rain.

This is my 3rd time on this trail in the last 4 years and it never ceases to impress! There are some steep parts so wear good shoes. Overall one of the best easier hikes I have ever been on and that is saying something for a fat chick.

Easy jaunt to a beautiful waterfall. The water is cold and clean.

The petroglyphs are amazing!! Once you get through the valley, head to the right when the trail forks.

Great views.

Beautiful trail. But not very well marked along the route. Got lost several times and had to backtrack. My fault for looking at rocks.

The BEST hike in the Moab area!! You will not see natural towers like these anywhere!

No shade, but beautiful hike!

really nice hike. not busy lots of beautiful scenery, and interesting path. you zig zag across the river/stream, and we managed to stay pretty dry by rock hopping, but saw a lot of people with water sandals too.

overall, loved this one, definitely recommend.

You have to cross the creek multiple times, so prepared to get wet. They’re also very many false paths from people wandering off the main trail that is very easy to get lost. After the first waterfall there are multiple paths that lead to dead ends or meander back to the main trail. After a certain point you random multiple groups that have lost the trail and were unable to continue.

Beautiful and worth some initial minor step climbing. Most of the trail is on slick rock and not only marked by green paint marks but also watch for stacks of stones (cairns). The short cable section is an upright, just watch your foot placements. Started out 8am and only saw four others; outbound at the end saw several incoming. NOTE: At the start, you need to pass through two wire fenced areas, crossing the railroad tracks in between. Saw 2 others almost get lost if we hadn’t called them to correct.
