it's a fun hike ... there is a very steep climb at the start of the trail then it levels out ... the arch itself is cool to see and gives you something to look forward to as you hike .. it dose have much traffic so expect to enjoy some seclusion and wildlife.

Beautiful trail but they need better signs on the trail. Lots of uphill

My family and I done this trail on 10-19-2016, at first the trail was nice, but up hill. However, the trail was very narrow in places, trees down in the trail, which made it a pain to get through. The trail was rated on AllTrails as EASY, but it should be rated as Moderate to Difficult. The trail needs to be better marked and better upkept. If you are an experienced hiking up it's good, but for inexperienced, don't do it. The arch was impressive, along with the Fall colors.
