Highly trafficked, but fighting the crowds are worth the payoff of seeing delicate arch. Not sure how much longer it will exist before it finally collapses..

Nothing not to like, except maybe the crowds. A must-do at Arches,

One of the most unique hikes I’ve been on. Can be tough with the heat. Go very early or late afternoon. Bring plenty of water

Planned to hike this in before sunset to catch sunset at the arch and then hike out under the moon. Unfortunately got a late start and hiked up around twilight. Wound up getting lost during one of the more open slick rock areas. Had enough of a signal to pick up GPS and map my way back to the trail. Stupid moon didn't rise until 1:13 am after we made it back to camp lol! Was still a ton of fun. I'd repeat it in the daytime anyday.

Amazing. Did it with kids 10 & 13 on a VERY hot day. It’s difficult in my opinion, but I think that had a lot to do with the heat.

A fun hike to this iconic Utah arch. Try to make it during cooler parts of the day. Shade to escape from the heat is slim.

was too tired to hike the real trail so i did the lookout

Sweet hike. We arrived in parking lot at 730 am. lots of people. wouldn't recommend going much later than that!

very easy hike. amazing spot to get into the shade and have a snack or lunch. nice breeze. relaxing !

really nice hike. keep walking through the arch to continue to tapestry arch about a half mile further.

i went layer in the afternnon and there only two families enjoying the arch. they were on their way out so I got an awesome pic

quick and easy. cross the street and do the other one too. be patient with parking, spors were completely filled around 11 and I assume most of the afternoon

awesome stuff. parking is the only downside

It was a great hike, especially the way up to the Partition and Navajo Arches. not too hard except for one steep climb

Short, easy stroll from the parking lot. Loved how the views of the rocks change as yuh walk around them, can get right up under them. Neat!

Spectacular! Description is accurate, harder hike getting to the arch and the return is pretty easy. We were even treated to a flute player under the arch!

Our kids were little at the time and it was a great trail for them. Next time we will definitely explore more places!

Amazing at sunset. Took 35 mins up (we maintained a pretty constant pace). Could be tricky to see trail when walking up the sandstone but you can easily follow the crowds. It’s popular for a reason - don’t be deterred by the number of people!

only 0.2 miles one way. so there and back 0.4 mi total if you go directly there and don't do the loop. very cool petroglyphs.

cool view for minimal effort!

Absolutely wonderful! wear chacos or hiking sandals. you walk through a lot of sand but also climb rocks. also bring PLENTY of water. at least 32oz for yourself. lastly bring a face scarf. the second half of the trail (towards campsite) gets windy and it whips up in your face. AMAZING!!!

Another extremely easy walk but wonderful views of the arches and surrounding area. Quite crowded and hard to find a parking spot at the trailhead

Not sure if you can constitute this as a hike. Pull over in the parking area and walk down a sidewalk to get close to the balancing rock. Fed a must see in the park

Gorgeous !! Be sure to stop at Frame arch before delicate arch

Super easy walk to the arch. It was pretty busy but absolutely beautiful!

We hiked this with my family yesterday. It’s a beautiful hike. It’s not difficult if you’re fit. My parents were slower but it wasn’t terribly difficult. The view was beautiful and well worth the small, short climb.

Oh my, what a hike. The stairs are killer! Enjoyed it very much, but be prepared for a somewhat long uphill hike back!

Simple trail that takes you to the base of this amazing double pothole arch. You can see other arches to your side and amazing nature. Do this and then go up to the Windows so you can walk downhill to your car.
