A great hike and not far from Moab, Arches N.P. and Dead Horse Point. The hardest part is the uphill stretch from the car park and across the railroad track. After that the climb is easier. There are two points which seem to be fearsome but prove to be easy: the trail reaches a point where the hiker needs to use a steel cable, embedded into the rock, to ascend a gradient. The second is immediately after that cable and is a ladder set vertically into the rock. It's only four or five rungs and both are easy ascents. Thereafter the Corona Arch is visible ahead and right. The Arch is best viewed from the far side.
An amazing hike which is reasonably short and offers excellent views

Lots of families and dogs, great payoff at the end! The arches are spectacular!
Dogs and kids might need help up and down the ladder spots.

Perfect hike for a 100 degree day. Some rock traversing but nothing difficult really. Oh yeah, you have to cross the railroad tracks in the beginning, not walk alongside them. It's a bit unclear to some (us...)

Great hike that has some challenging parts but ultimately family friendly. Our 5 year old did the hike with some help here and there.

Well worth the hike up slick rock, using chains and ladders in place to two fantastic backcountry arches. Beautiful walk. Some shade in the morning. Fab!
