    Evan Opsal reviewed Delicate Arch Trail

    15 days ago

    There's a reason this is the highest rated trail in Arches. When you finally turn the corner to see Delicate Arch it's absolutely breathtaking...which is somewhat negated by the massive amount of people that are up there. I'd definitely recommend doing this hike earlier in the morning, both to beat the crowds and the heat (there's next to no shade on the entire hike). For the most part, people are very kind about waiting in line to get good pictures under the arch and staying out of the frame for people taking shots from farther away.

    Best bang for your buck trail in Arches due to the amazing views and incredibly short walk. You could do an out and back hike here in less than 20 minutes if you had to. We had lunch under the arches and it was just absolutely majestic.

    Evan Opsal reviewed Hickman Bridge Trail

    Very pretty hike, moderate is a good classification for it as there was a little more elevation gain than I thought there would be. The bridge is gorgeously huge and the views throughout the hike don't disappoint. My only negative was that the trail was a tad bit hard to follow right around the bridge area. Make sure to grab a guide for 50 cents right at the start of the hike, it's fun to follow and there are some cool bits about the geology and flora of the area.

    Gorgeous hike, we started by going down the Wall Street area and our ascent at the end wasn't as steep as it would have been going the other direction. It's busy right at the start and finish but for the vast majority of the hike we were mostly by ourselves.
