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.

Gorgeous hike , great orientation to Arches , once near Landscape arch you can go either straight past the arch and scramble up or make a left about 200 ft before the arch and enter the same loop but counterclockwise . Either way makes a great hike . With all the detours to see different arches the hike will be about 9 mi. If I had to hike it again, I wouldn't make a detour to see Dark Angel tower. You will be able to see it from the main trail and it's underwhelming up close . Some fun scrambles up and down on the way back to the parking lot awaited ( we wished we had a rope to help each other down the slickrock).

Good hike, plenty of arches to see along the way. Trail gets significantly less occupied the further you get in, once I was to the primitive trail section I hardly saw a soul. Bring lots of water, I consumed 3.5L throughout.

Beautiful hike which I would rate a moderate, easy in some places and hard in others also dependung on the heat. Start on the Main Trail and then proceed to Primative Trail. Bring tons of water, we went through over a gallon beyween two of us. Beautiful views of arches with lesser crowds!

Challenging, got to see some great views and arches. Went through 6 bottles of water and should have brought more. Temps were between 97 and 101 degrees, grueling heat. Saw two sets of doe and fauna on the way, this is how primitive the trail actually was. Unfortunately, got lost a few times. Try to stick to the trail with the stone piles. Overall, great!

Moderately difficult. Went clockwise on the loop trail, which seems like it would be much easier than counter clockwise. Hiked this mid-day with temps around 95-100 and went through 2L of water. Plenty of shady spots if you need a break.
