This was a fun and relatively easy hike. Our teenage kids liked it and the view was nice. If your looking for a nice little adventure do this hike.

Definitely worth your time. Hike past the arch for a little more adventure. Good scramble just past the arch up to the rim.

Great hiking. Not much shade in the first part. Neat little cave with skylights. Can walk through the arch... amazing view!!

A mostly easy hike to a signature natural bridge in Utah. The hardest parts were the switchbacks, so make sure you're prepared to gain lots of elevation in the first portion. The bridge is absolutely incredible.

Very easy trail - but, if you're just passing through the park this is close to the visitors center. You get views along the way of what the park can offer with a very cool bridge, keep going a little bit around the bridge to get some great pictures (can see paths that others have taken to go off trail a bit). This NP has bridges and Arches NP has the arches....arches are much more freestanding. Great park, not large as the case with most in Utah. They are all incredible, despite their size.

Loved this trail! We went about 6 am and had most of the trail to ourselves on the way to the bridge. Lots of cool rock formations, variation in color and patterns, great vistas and manageable trail with kids.
