This is a good trail combination to see both Druid Arch and the East side of Chesler Park. Be careful backtracking from Druid Arch so you don't miss the turn off to Chesler Park. The route involves some easy scrambling and edges. Route finding is easy as there are cairns all over the place.

Awesome hike. Left at 6:15 and got back at 12:25. Drank 5 liters of water. River bed gets boring during the out and back portion. Some difficult scrambles and the view at the end is astonishing. Check out my video of the hike - https://youtu.be/DE5QSMlaBbU

Great alternative if you don't feel like doing the whole Chesler Park Loop on top of the Druid Arch hike but still want to see as much as possible in one day. The hike itself is reasonably easy - there is a little bit of scrambling just before the Arch itself and getting up the Chesler Park trail, but neither is particularly difficult or dangerous in any way, and the views are really worth it. We did the hike at the end of May and got lucky with weather - mid-70s to low 80s made for a pleasant day, but I can imagine this becoming rather tough in summer. Definitely carry enough water!
