Beautiful views, plus this takes you through most of the park. This hike is actually a few trails joined into one long hike. Enjoy!

Great trail hike mostly flat terrain rather than a vigorous vertical. Incredibly scenic though and the rock structures are amazing

Went at 6:30pm and waited out a short thunderstorm, only to be followed by a gorgeous sunset with awesome light on the rocks. Would recommend going around this time if you can, it's much less busy than midday and the lighting is fantastic. Hike is mostly flat and you can climb up the rocks to get better views if you're feeling adventurous.

Gorgeous views! Like everyone says, arrive early because it gets busy!! Awesome to see and can't wait to get back there again.

Less of a hike, more of a paved homage to these natural wonders. We went at sunrise so was not crowded yet so it was very enjoyable. If you are in the springs, worth a visit for sure.
