This is a must-stop if you're in the area, or em route to Death Valley. the trail is very short, and often becomes a choose your own adventure due to the sparce & oft deteriorated markings. However, every deviant bend in your path is rewarded with a private slice of the best views of Mt. Whitney & some of the most unique & enchanting rock formations.

Mobius Arch is a popular but short loop. The arch gives the trail its name, but as you hike, enjoy the otherworldly rock formations. Also, make sure to pause and enjoy the snow-capped Eastern Sierras including the majestic Mt. Whitney.

Short hike. Gorgeous views. Bring water, I visited the first week of February 2018. There was a storm coming in the distance, however it was warm. The trail is a loop. From the parking I would start at the western trail as it is the shorter route to the arch. Minimal ascents and descends. The surrounding area of Alabama hills was breathtaking. Hiking options, biking options and I believe off-road options. Oh also great boulders for climbing. Definitely coming back!

Amazing place!!! Worth the visit if you are traveling around. Easy short hike, but expect a strong cold wind during the winter time. A+++

I would probably rate this an easy, not a moderate. I had to go to Lone Pine for work and just wanted to get it into nature after seeing the gorgeous setting. I chose this hike because of the distance and did it Vans slip ons. well worth it. Tons of boulders to climb on. It's really amazing.

Spectacular view point and easy hike, avoid the hottest parts of the day if you're here during summer. a passenger vehicle can make it on the dirt road to this hike.

Nice, short hike. I wouldn't recommend mid day though as it can be a bit hot but the arches are cool to see!

Nice, very easy & very short trail. We started around 3pm and only saw one other family. I expect the trail to be very crowded earlier in the day or around sunrise. As we felt like walking a bit longer, we combined several trails into a 4mi loop, beautiful scenery and no other people. Sadly, not all trails are available on alltrails, so we had go consult the park map, trails not very well visible at times. I still recorded the hike (sorry managed to cancel the recording at one point) if you feel like hiking longer.
