This is a wonderful hike that allows you to see up to six named arches. The main trail is well maintained, and wide. The first spur trail takes you to Tunnel Arch and Pine Tree Arch. The trail leads to Landscape Arch, which at 306' long is one of the largest natural spans in the world. After visiting Landscape Arch, you begin your only significant uphill climb of the trip. You will walk well below Wall Arch, then climb higher to spur trails to Navajo and Partition Arch. At this point retrace the main trail back to the trailhead or continue on for an additional 2 1/4 miles for views of Double Arch and Dark Angel.

Although I have rated several 'hard' hikes to be actually moderate, this hike should be 'hard'. In the primitive trail there are about 3 spots that require some experience and dexterity. Fear if heights doesn't work there. Beautiful loop which takes you along 8! arches. Clockwise is recommended. As early as you can.

A fantastic hike. Quite busy at the start so suggest starting early. Would recommend doing the loop clockwise.

Nice trail, I went out the primitive trail and back the main trail. I actually found that it was easier to keep track of the primitively trail as there were more cairns set up. Got a bit lost at double o arch trying to find the main trail back, but found it using the map provided in this app fortunately. I did it started about 3-3:30 pm and since it was still about 100° at this point I brought plenty of water and took some breaks in the shade. All the arches aren't too far off the trail and are nice to check out.
