Best hike of the year so far. The abundance of rain had every rockhouse waterfall rolling. Very well maintained trail, very well marked. We listened to the reviews and went clockwise on the loop. Great advice!! Pictures really can't do this hike justice.

Easy. Well marked. Trail in good shape. Close to 3.5 mi. A lot of bang for your buck-many stunning rock features and small waterfalls on a short hike. Don't miss this one. Go soon after or during rain.

Middle Creek trailhead is a 3.4 mile loop for hiking. It is well marked, and has rock houses along the trail. There is one spot where you need to do a little rock navigation. No area to really stop and have lunch. Beautiful scenic road from Monticello. No GPS.

Our trip to Twin Arches started at the Middle Creek trailhead. We went "straight" to Jakes Place, set up our tent,did the Twin Arches loop, then stayed the night. The next day we did the loops we had bypassed on the first day. Each loop was spectacular and had its own feel. Middle Creek had great vertical bluffs and overhangs. This loop was easy but not to be missed.
