hiked the day after a big snow in the early morning. loved everything about it. feel once because I didn't have spikes. I also made a video of the hike on my YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/NY_pbA2SJvM

Great trail, definitely felt the burn. Probably wear hiking shoes next time! Ice was pretty slippery

hiked yesterday, beautiful views, definitely worth it! only went up with hiking boots, no spikes and did just fine, but spikes would have helped on the icy parts.

Trail gets icy af past the shelter and across the creek. Really wish I wouldn’t have left my spikes at home...

Super awesome trail! Spikes would have helped a bit, but beautiful views!

Most people today, including my group, didn’t have spikes. Going up is fine, but VERY slick going down...lots of people slipping. Although it was a 60 and sunny day, spikes were definitely still needed.

Icy in spots, but not too slippery.

Quite a bit of elevation with lot of ice/snow. Spikes are a must.

This trail was a lot of fun if you’re looking for a nice challenge. I would definitely advise wearing spikes because there are some pretty slippery spots. Very sore and very happy!

Great hike, beautiful views from the top, nice workout. Definitely recommend using micro spikes.

I went Saturday around 12:30pm and found parking on the street. Street parking isn’t as bad as I expected. The trail is short, fun, and there wasn’t any snow when I went. Nice view from the top but kind of crowded at times.

Beautiful hike. A little bit crowded but extremely enjoyable with a nice spot up top for lunch.

It's a pretty busy trail because of its proximity to town, but a great trail nonetheless! Definitely not hard hard, but some technical areas are on there.

This was a great hike. Although steep in sections, this is more of a hard moderate than as hard hike on a good day. It was a clear day with no trail ice when we climbed it two days ago but the snow falling today.

Great hike - beautiful arch. The trail was pretty quiet for a Sunday and I didn’t see many people which was a plus. Icy in some parts, but fit for adventurers and hikers with spikes.

I made the mistake of doing an isolated glute workout prior to hiking this trail. But when you made the 40 minute drive commitment to Boulder, you do the Royal Arch Trail. Period. Instagram butt here I come!

The people on the trail are very kind. Although people’s definitions of “almost there” vary. It was hard to tell if some people were just being motivating or if they had blacked out for the last 30 minutes and didn’t understand how far they hiked down from the top.

Not too icy, totally hikeable and great views!

Did this trail tonight after work with a couple of friends and our dogs. Really fun night hike! Spikes and poles would have been nice, but we didn't have them and were. Views of Boulder were gorgeous!
