Easy walking trail with the reward of a picturesque arch at the end

First time here! First time in the dark! Loved this trail, definitely not easy lol. Hubby, kids and I made it to the bridge and back. Definitely want to go again when there's more daylight but when you work, you get it in when you can.

Fantastic trail. Moderate difficulty. Love the wilderness and pine trails. Trail was well marked but we still got a little lost near the stairs by courthouse rock where auxier trail branches off.

Had a great time despite how my legs feel!

Awesome panoramic views of the Red. Not really physically demanding which allowed us to explore. Not sure if I'm being too much of a nature snob but the only downside is all the names carved in the rock as well as so chalk graffiti on the rocks. Not a huge deal, I just like to leave nature as it is rather than leave my mark.

Still a fun trail!

Trail was in excellent condition and provided awe-inspiring views and fantastic wilderness. For a first time hiker, this trail tested my limits but it also inspired me to train and move on to even better things!

I loved this trail! Follows right along the river until a steep climb up to eagles nest and was super muddy with lots of wildlife to see. There was lots of climbing over rocks and ups and downs. I would say it's more of a rugged hike.

Arch is beautiful, but quite a few stairs. Otherwise nice hike and some beautiful scenery!

Falls and scenery are beautiful! Wonderful rock formations. Took my kids, ages 5 and 8, they loved it! Will be going back!

Pretty good hike!! I definitely wouldn't call it easy!! Very hard for kids! Beautiful creek and waterfalls. Be prepared for a lot of up hill hiking.
