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.

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.

FAVORITE hike in the entire world. Absolutely incredible. Staggeringly beautiful. Love the arches and the views and the Mars feel. Go early though it gets crowded and hot!

This trail was closed this past week for one month. I was really disappointed with the closure during one of the busiest seasons of the year. There is an area next to where they blocked off the rode where you can go about 3 miles round trip to see three arches.

Southern Utah is astounding. This was a fairly easy hike but is the longest in the park which can make it seem more difficult than the actual terrain. A must!

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.
