First time hiking in the desert, and we made some pretty stupid mistakes; not checking the length of the trail, not bringing enough water etc. Ended up in a bad situation, but that's far from the trails fault! Really cool views and rock formations. Once you get out of the canyon and circle around the arch, there isn't much to look at. I would love to tackle this one again when better prepared.

Some friends and I were actually there in Sept 2015. We camped at one of the sites along the trail. Very beautiful and quiet. Nice short trail, clean sites. Had to watch for poison ivy though, it was rather abundant in some places. All in all, I would love to go back. Would definitely recommend if you're in the area

Holy mosquitoes. We only made it out of the car for 5 mins and we were covered with bug bites. We never made it.

Tough at first then easy. Don't let talk of shade fool you unless you go late afternoon. We yikes about 130 full sun 106 degrees

Too many mosquitos and be careful of poison ivy

Very buggy at the end and didn't want to swim in the stagnant waters but a lovely hike thru the canyon worth it if you have an extra 20 minutes in Moab!

We loved this hike! The petroglyphs were so cool.

Wanted to warn future hikers that the end of the trail near the pond is teaming with poison ivy.

I love this trail! The hike was soooo hot but well worth the journey to the petroglyphs. Bring lots of water and good company this time of year (June).
