Steep incline for about 1/3 the round trip hike, flat 1/3 and steady decline for 1/3. I used poles which was helpful, but not necessary. I had already done 10 miles today and was reluctant to hike another 3 but boy...so worth it. We luckily and totally by chance ended up at the arch five minutes or so before sunset and the arch literally GLOWED. I almost cried because it was just so insanely beautiful...if you don’t do any other somewhat difficult trails in the park, do this one.
