    Michael Harlow reviewed Hellhole Canyon Open Space Preserve Trails

    26 days ago

    From the parking lot to the trail loop, this trail is very well-maintained. We did the shorter loop on this hike, since it started off somewhat cool during the early morning but heated up quickly. Definitely ensure you bring lots of water, as this hike does not have much canopy cover or any in most places. Fun and interesting things to check out. Look for our pictures with our mascot, Dino the dino, with a horny toad lizard. #TheAdventureTravelers

    Michael Harlow reviewed Peek-a-Boo and Spooky Slot Canyons

    about 1 month ago

    Well worth the drive. We drove our car almost the whole way at about 35 mph. Going 10 miles an hour or 35 mph, you’re still going to run into some ruts and vibration. You might as well go 35 mph.

    We drove our car, “Pepe the Prius” all the way to the first parking area. From there, we needed to walk up to the high clearance parking lot. Most of the 4 x 4‘s and some other cars made it up, however we decided just to walk. The hike down to the slot canyons was somewhat hot and we knew it was going to be miserable coming back, so we are glad we brought a lot of water and hats.

    Once we got to the first slot canyon, we met some others that told us to make the clockwise loop from peekaboo to spooky gulch. It is much easier to drop down through spooky gulch rather than climb your way up counter clockwise.

    Ensure that when you get out of peekaboo, once you reach the big tree in the wash, make a right and follow cairns up and over the brushy area. From there you will drop down into spooky Gulch and it is a lot of fun.

    Save some energy for the hike back up and out to your car.

    You will be glad you made the trip. The heat is a little challenging but the slot canyons are well worth it. Our tip is, the earlier, the better.

    I rate this five stars for its ease of accessibility and beauty. There are not many areas where you can pull off the road and immediately be swept up in a hiking wonderland.

    The drive on BLM200 is a little rutted but not so bad that our car, “Pepe the Prius” couldn’t make it.

    Great for afternoon picnics or a quick place to just enjoy the splendor and enchantment of an unusual destination.

    Easy parking and bathrooms onsite.

    Hike, enjoy, relax and discover. Lots of fun for all ages.

    Michael Harlow reviewed Fiery Furnace and Surprise Arch

    about 1 month ago

    There is nothing like being the only people in a very sought after hiking destination.

    My wife and I got a permit (everyone has to) at the Arches National Park Visitors Center the day before our hike. We would suggest you do this a couple days or a week before, if you have time. During the summer months,it fills up quickly. You will have to watch a video and sign some documents, so allow at least a half hour to process the permit paperwork.

    To be the only ones in the fiery furnace, you will need to do like we did, and get up around 5 AM to be the first ones there. It rained the night before, so we literally laid the first footprints within the hiking trails.

    We found that most of the trail was laid out very well. You just have to look for the little arrows or the cairns‘s that are placed by the Rangers and you will find your way through.

    This is a little bit of a challenging hike as you will have to climb up over boulders and along some rock faces. Ensure you carry lots of water, because you will get lost once or twice but you will easily find your way back to the correct path. Getting lost here is half the fun.

    We did the hike in about two hours but I’m sure it may take a little longer for others.

    The entire hike from beginning to end is absolutely amazing and beautiful. One of our favorite hikes.

    Michael Harlow reviewed Delicate Arch Trail

    about 1 month ago

    The trailhead is very accessible. Parking and restrooms are nearby and the trail is well marked. Hiking up the trail, you will come to a longer section of slightly graded rock hiking where you will be in direct sunlight. Ensure you bring a fair amount of water, sunscreen and/or hat since there is rarely any canopy.

    Once off the rock hike, the trail becomes much more beautiful. The last stretch, to me, was the most beautiful. Walking along a cliff face the trail narrows and then... the magnificent Delicate Arch! It’s much more dramatic than all the other arches in Arches National Park, since it stands alone and is amazing. Don’t forget to look around and behind the arch. There are gorgeous gorges, beautiful bowls and fragrant desert flowers.

    Beautiful driving tour. There are a lot of places to stop and check out. As soon as you go into the park, you will see some amazing places. As you continue on the views just get better and better I am. We went in the early spring of 2018 and it was absolutely beautiful. If you want to do the fiery furnace then you need to get a permit a day or two prior to doing it.
