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!

Great place for evening, morning and night photography to compose landscape and Milky Way photos.

Easy hike to a picturesque location

super easy. tons of people climbing on the arch... bummer.
