Moderately easy hike, up to 7 easily reached arches, desert settings. This is a wonderful hike that allows you to see up to six named arches, any one of which would be worth the moderately easy hike. The main trail is well maintained, and wide. The first spur trail takes you to Tunnel Arch and Pine Tree Arch. Next 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. The later offering great views out over the desert. At this point we retraced the main trail back to the trailhead, but you could continue on for an additional 2 1/4 miles for views of Double Arch and Dark Angel.

The primitive route is fairly difficult hiking, but wow is it rewarding. Bring LOTS of water and enjoy some light scrambling up and across finbacks. Delicate Arch is the star of Arches, rightfully, but this is my favorite hike.

Like waking up on another planet. I didn't even mean to take a hike, just wandered away from camp with a cup of coffee. Next thing I knew, I was miles away.

If you take the primitive route, it can get quite tough. We had to turn around after the Double O Arch since my buddy was starting to get heat exhaustion. Very cool trail with great scenery and terrain but beware to get "arched out" since you get to see many arches. Landscape arch is my favorite.

This trail is on the borderline of moderate/hard if you plan on doing the primitive part of the trail as well. We did the regular trail one way and took the primitive part of the loop back. There are a couple of hairy descents on slick rock which can be challenging if it has been raining recently.
Amazing views. Completely worth it. Less crowded than the other trails.

Best real hike in Arches. The varied terrain alone made it a great hike. The arches just made it better. It is the must do hike in the park.
