Hiking the loop counter clockwise is suggested since the path down rough trail from the escarpment is easier to spot going downhill. It's a beautiful trial with gorgeous views from the bluffs.

Hiked to the arch and back (not the loop) Sunday. It was pretty crowded since the weather was nice. Trail is well maintained. To the arch is easy, back to trail head is mostly up hill, lots of steps, lots of incline. Arch is beautiful. Wish I would have done the loop. The other half is rough trail and everyone on the path said don’t do it just go back, but after more review online it sounds like the rough path side is fine and I could have managed it as an intermediate hiker. Will definitely go back to do the full loop.

If this is hard, Indian Staircase should also be hard. But this is a really nice trail that I'd happily do again.

Great arch with nice vistas. I would rate this trail moderate as opposed to hard. There was a lot of human waste near the arch in areas where you could explore - gross.

Popular trail. Ran the trail down to the steps that get you to the arch and then climbed up the back of the arch using the provided rope. It was aweeeesome! Will definitely do it again :)
