Great little nature trail that takes you on a steep climb to the cave, great overlooks from above the cave, with a little bit of boulder climbing.

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

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.

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!

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

Good trail with not much traffic if you go early morning. Couple of spots that may be difficult for those less mobile.

Great trail. Lots of water crossing so wear footwear that you don’t mind getting wet. Imagine it would be difficult at higher water levels. Arch at the end is worth the trip.

We went at the end of the day so we could catch the sunset through the arch. It was beautiful and most people had left by that time so we felt like we had it to ourselves. Just take a headlamp or flashlight so you can make it back safely. The trail is well marked. Loved this hike!

Beautiful, well marked, lots of children and people of all ages. The Corona is amazing!

Loved this trail! Shade and several creek crossings made this a very enjoyable hike in the afternoon. Fun to see a group repelling off the natural bridge at the end too. My 4 kids had no problem navigating this one. We saw lots of dogs.

Great arches! Very crowded and lots of kids on Saturday, so a little hard to keep a steady pace. Worth the trip though! Takes only an hour, including stops.

Beautiful canyon scenery with a massive stone bridge at the end. I was not expecting it to be so large. Definitely a moderate hike, there are a lot of creek crossings.

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.

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

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!!

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
