This was a really great trail. The views were amazing, and the Joint is the best part of the whole hike. However, if you do this hike in the summer, take way more water than you think you will need. I don’t drink a lot on hikes and I needed almost a gallon of water. Only the middle of the loop has consistent shade, so the beginning and end can get really hot really fast. That being said, the views and experience are well worth it.

All hail the Canyonlands cairns builders! What a terrific hike with an amazing payoff. Split your time between watching for cairns and looking at the scenery and you’ll be fine. So much to look at. We started at 7:30am and we’re grateful for some cloud cover off and on throughout the hike. It does get hot. We each went though about 2L of water and were thankful for a cold Gatorade we’d stashed to be ready when we got back. Hiking through the sand in the wash wasn’t my favorite but as a whole, this was a huge win. Not at all crowded on July 3.

May 2019 trip to Southwest, fifth visit to UT, last time was 10 years ago in late spring. Day 6. Mine #39 National Park to visit in over two decades. Because of unusually cold and windy day and very late afternoon I was almost alone here. Another magnificent hike (after Mesa Arch) with astounding views!!! East side is more magnificent. At the end where is Grand View Point Overlook do not expect any official view platform. Scramble few rocks to experience it. Can see three mountain ranges: La Sal, Abajo, Henry.

May 2019 trip to Southwest, fifth visit to UT, last time was 10 years ago in late spring. Day 6. Mine #39 National Park to visit in over two decades. Was planning go to Upheval Dome but not enough time. This overlook is absolutely mind blowing!! I was to Grand Canyon three times already. Yet here you also can experience vastness of the canyons.

May 2019 trip to Southwest, fifth visit to UT, last time was 10 years ago in late spring. Day 6. Mine #39 National Park to visit in over two decades. (Main Goal#7 of trip). Despite stormy weather very crowded, however clouds moved away to reveal Stunning Views!!! I didn’t expect arch to be at sheer drop. Hours ago did Delicate Arch hike and now Mesa Arch, so glad I have done it and weather cooperated!

Easy trail, good views all on rocky surfaces. If potholes had water would have been prettier, especially at sunset. Cairns were fun to follow. Cute little caves to get pictures in.

Loved the walk!!! Druids arch was amazing and looking back over what I walked through was stunning. The canyons / valleys were a lot of fun. I left Moab around 5-5.30 am and arrived between 7 and 7.30 am. I had shade nearly all the way out. Then lost some time messing around the arch. No real shade on the way back but kept meeting people. Recommend at least 4 liters of water if not more!!!

Easy and fun hike with a spectacular view. Enjoy!

Great super quick. The view beyond the arch make it seem like you are on Mars. Highly recommend you get someone to take your photo at the arch and above it to the left.

Excellent hike, the sights from the viewpoint are amazing. We set out during the heat of the afternoon (not awful at all, the wind kept the heat down and it felt cool out) when most groups were returning and had the trail to ourselves.

Quick, fun, and informative. Also, we ran into a rattlesnake, what more could you want?

Great hike for family's. Bring a little water and you will be fine.

Great trail and super kid friendly! I did it with my sister and parents and we enjoyed it! Watch out for bugs.

This trail is difficult, especially coming back up the canyon. The trail is fairly flat for the first 1.5 miles, and then a steep, rocky scramble down to the wash. Once you get to the wash (the route we took), it’s pretty flat. To give an idea of pace, my group left around 9:15am (June 27) and headed back up the canyon around 1:30pm. In the afternoon, there are little pockets of shade in the rock face, but you’re very exposed to the sun. BRING LOTS OF WATER! At least a gallon per person. We took about 7 hours total (including stopping for lunch at the bottom).
