Great, relatively easy hike. The flow at the falls was not all that great, but the hike in the woods was very peaceful and worth the trip. You cannot go to the base of the falls. They have it 'sort of' fenced off. Take your camera!

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. There are two trails to the falls to see it from different sides. Looks like people go down to the falls (around fence line) but it is causing erosion:-(. The Slaves Falls Loop is rolling hills thru the woods and was pretty easy.

*NO facilities at this trail head. I suggest driving to the Twin Arches trail head to use the restroom, before hiking this trail*
Very easy trail to hike, not super strenuous at all. Also, this trail had many spider webs across the trail, in many spots. I recommend using either a long stick or your trekking pole, to clear your path, as you walk. The water levels have been VERY low, no significant rain falls.....so the actual "falls" were nonexistent. But regardless of water flow, the area is absolutely gorgeous, and the history of this spot is amazing.
Although VERY, VERY small, in comparison to the Twin Arches, I recommend making the short trek to Needle Arch, while you are there. It's a nice addition to the Slave Falls walk, you might as well do it, while you are there.

Nice, wide trail with some rocky areas which would be wet if slippery. No slaves

2 adults and 3 10 year old girls had a great hike...we took shelter in the Rock house during the high winds and sleet and rain as a cold front came through. Great hike. Spring Break 2016. reminded us of hiking in the Red River Gorge in KY. Where we usually hike.

Nice rock shelters, falls and a well maintained trail. There's a worthwhile split to a rock arch off of the Slave Falls trail as well. Dog friendly.
