Great trail! Five river crossings, so be prepared. We had a lot of fun though.

Easy and great because you can get in the water when hot. Be careful of the rocks you sit on in the water though, I saw tiny leaches on them!

Wish the trail woulda been marked. We ended up going to the petroglyphs by accident, which I'm glad we found those. But we had started out looking for this trail.

You will be going in and out if the stream a few times so wear shoes you can get wet

Excellent Hike, easy and very rewarding. Four water crossings back to the bridge, but that is just the start. Unmentioned, you cross the river on the north side of the arch, if you continue 15 minutes further on the social trail you will be led to a large hieroglyph panel, Sunset Arch, and a Fremont cliff dwelling When you arrive at the cliff dwelling, the hieroglyph is at the top of a small rise on your left. This also places you at the base of the arch, but to see it you cross the river one more time and walk 3 more minutes and is comes into view on your left.

Nice stroll along the river, a few semi-deep river crossings so wear sandals or water shoes and shorts! No difficulty whatsoever but pleasant + nice bridge. Our intro hike to Escalante!
