We arrived just after sunrise and that was just the right timing! We’ve read that you should be there between sunrise and an hour or so to avoid people and see the sun come through the arch. And it was just that! Great experience!

Great climb, great views! The granaries are cool and definitely worth the detour

The second view point is worth the extra mile - you can see the entire view!

Amazing views with very little foot traffic! It’s not well advertised so it avoids the crowding other trails have.

Gorgeous views, climbing a very high cliff on switchbacks that at least provide room and don't get too narrow. Make it to the top where the visitors center is and you'll see the climb was worth it. More stunning scenery is hard to find.

My husband and I hiked this trail Monday October 8 2019, counter clockwise using the Big Spring trail then connecting to the Squaw Flat trail. From the saddle at the connection of the two it was a terrifying hike down the side of the sandstone cliff to continue on the side of the cliff following the cairns down into the canyon. I was scared to death and my husband had to talk me through it. One misstep and one would roll off the sandstone cliff into the canyon; returning the direction we came would have been just as precarious trying to get off of the sandstone ledges. If we had known it would be so dangerous, we would not have done that portion of the hike. We are both seasoned hikers, and are careful. (We just hiked Hope Lake in Telluride last Friday with no issues). I’m 65 and my husband 69. We did not feel safe on the connection part of the Big Spring/Squaw Flat trail. Maybe the young people like the dangerous situations, but I prefer to be as safe as possible.

I thought this one was just okay. Incline all the way up to the first lookout. I think there are better lookouts in this park, but I was intrigued by the “mystery” of the dome’s formation. I didn’t feel the need to do the second lookout. Was also SUPER windy when I was up there— hung onto the information sign to keep my balance.

Moderate incline on the way to a beautiful lookout. There are consistently spots where you must hoist yourself 8-12 inches up tall stairs or rocks, so it might be difficult if you have joint issues. Ending had an awesome lookout where we ate a snack and spent some time enjoying the view.

Easy gradual incline to a great payoff. Bests viewed in the morning— even at 10am when we went, the sun through the arch causes it to glow and look spectacular.

Amazing interesting terrain hike up and down over rocks and boulders. There are signs marking the trail that I found was a little confusing! Watch for Anasazi ruins, you might miss unless you are not watching.

Spectacular scenery amazing views. Hard to get location long drive. Quiet wilderness location. Excellent ancient native art. . Beware this is really an 8.5 mile out and back hike according to our GPS and verified by the volunteer docent at the Great Gallery. Trail in canyon is very sandy so it feels more like a 10+ mile hike Still glad we did it.

Very nice hike! We saw 3 people in our way and they were not with us when we were at the highlights. It was a great hike!

So much fun the entire time. Enjoy:)

Easy awesome hike

Gorgeous overlook but this is not a hike. There is a paved concrete walkway out to the viewpoint so it attracts many visitors. Still, definitely worth a stop.

Terrific view but this is not really a hike. The arch itself is worth a stop but it is a highly accessible one so attracts many visitors.
