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.

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.

After spending a couple of days in Moab, our entire group would say that this was definitely our favorite hike. Many beautiful views throughout the walk, we couldn't stop taking pictures! We would strongly recommend taking the primitive trail once you reach it (right across from the Landscape Arch) and finish the loop taking the route that way (you can get a nice descriptive map at the trailhead for 50 cents). It was extremely beautiful and peaceful. While Arches as a whole is usually extremely crowded and busy, this area was basically empty. It felt like we had the whole park to ourselves. All in all, this is a must hike if you have time!

great, fun trail with impressive collection of arches and other rock features. the primitive trail is more challenging than the main route, fewer arches. bring tons of water; if it hadn't been so dang hot I'd give it 5 stars.

Really awesome hike. You see your fair share of arches, all which are unique and pretty. The trail isn't very difficult except maybe at times, but relatively flat and super fun. Plenty of rocks to climb to get to cool viewpoints

This trail is accessed via the Landscape Arch trail. The most beautiful pics of the Double O Arch are achieved from the back side, creating a window effect. The additional arches along the route are interesting, but can be passed if you're short on time. There is more shade than I anticipated, which was welcome on a 100+ degree day. Be sure to do the primitive trail; well worth the additional mile-plus! Just keep your eyes peeled for the stacked rock markers... I may have gotten lost once or twice, along with the unfortunate folks who followed me.
