Not a bad morning hike. Pretty busy. Not one where you can let your dog off the leash:) No shade, so earlier is better before the heat. We were reluctant to take out large, 10 year old, 100 lb boxer because of the steep, cable part. I would say about half the bigger dogs made it up and the other half turned around. Thankfully, our boy was able to do it-he's pretty trusting and has been on some difficult hikes-but he struggled. You can see the arch from the cable area, so if the dog can't make it, you don't have to turn around empty handed!

People of all different abilities made it in this one. Older, heavier, kids, parents packing kids.... the arches are beautiful. Corona is one of my favorite ones.

A good little hike where you can bring your dogs and see some arches.

Great hike in Moab that is dog friendly. There are a few spots (ladder area and ascent just prior to the ladder) that would be tricky for larger dogs to climb and descend, but I did see a lab successfully get through both spots. It's a quick hike with great payoff at the arch!

Hard to follow in some areas, especially for a novice

This is a relatively short hike, which makes it great for families, dogs, people who don't like to hike, etc. There are a couple tricky spots (ladder and wires assist), but other than that this is a quick hike with a spectacular arch at the end. We hiked on a 55 degree sunny day and I can't imagine hiking much warmer than that. It was perfect!

This hike is wonderful. It isn't that hard, though it can get pretty hot. I suggest doing it early in the day, there is no cover the whole way up. This is my favorite arch in the area even though it is not actually in the Arches national Park. It is pretty impressive sitting under this giant.

Steep slick rock. Couldn't get to Arch this time because Emma (older Yellow lab) couldn't make it up the rocks.
