A fun and very easy trail with great views. Best rock formations are on the southern side but we prefer the northern end as it's quieter and the vista more rewarding.

Short hike. Gorgeous views. Bring water, I visited the first week of February 2018. There was a storm coming in the distance, however it was warm. The trail is a loop. From the parking I would start at the western trail as it is the shorter route to the arch. Minimal ascents and descends. The surrounding area of Alabama hills was breathtaking. Hiking options, biking options and I believe off-road options. Oh also great boulders for climbing. Definitely coming back!

Amazing place!!! Worth the visit if you are traveling around. Easy short hike, but expect a strong cold wind during the winter time. A+++

Easy hike. The arch is very cool

Beautiful weather and first time at this location. Fell in love instantly!

Easy hike that leads to beautiful rock formations . Kid friendly . Trail has small rocks lining it making it easy to find the path.

Mellow quick jaunt. Hiked today and the views were amazing.

I would probably rate this an easy, not a moderate. I had to go to Lone Pine for work and just wanted to get it into nature after seeing the gorgeous setting. I chose this hike because of the distance and did it Vans slip ons. well worth it. Tons of boulders to climb on. It's really amazing.

A tough and gnarly road for a low clearance passenger vehicle, but doable with care to avoid rocks and potholes. Anything else should be fine. The views themselves are 5 stars, but the area loses a star because it's not uncommon to find people have misused popular campsites and such. Over all worth visiting when you're in the area.

Spectacular view point and easy hike, avoid the hottest parts of the day if you're here during summer. a passenger vehicle can make it on the dirt road to this hike.

Short lovely trail with magnificent views of Alabama Hills

Nice, short hike. I wouldn't recommend mid day though as it can be a bit hot but the arches are cool to see!

Nice, very easy & very short trail. We started around 3pm and only saw one other family. I expect the trail to be very crowded earlier in the day or around sunrise. As we felt like walking a bit longer, we combined several trails into a 4mi loop, beautiful scenery and no other people. Sadly, not all trails are available on alltrails, so we had go consult the park map, trails not very well visible at times. I still recorded the hike (sorry managed to cancel the recording at one point) if you feel like hiking longer.
