Two mile out and back easy trail over well-maintained path to huge spanning arch known as the Landscape Arch in Arches National Park.

Beautiful, relatively flat trail. This would be an absolute breeze in warmer weather, but if you plan on visiting in the next few weeks or anytime there is snow on the ground, there is a good chance you will be walking on some very icy patches. Nothing too treacherous as there are no dropoffs on this trail, but you could land on your butt if not careful. I would recommend actual hiking boots and even poles if you need some extra help.

Multiple arches on the way to seeing the landscape arch. Good views, but the trail was extremely icy when we went on January 6th. We had some fun sliding down hills, but it was very easy to slip and fall.

The hike is not so special but the view at the end makes it worth it. It is very beautiful especially in winter when it’s covered with snow.

Sidewalk takes you all the way to the arch. There is a sand path (very sandy) if you want to see the arch from a different view point. Well worth seeing. Very easy walk.

Had a blast hiking this trail. Was the best part of our visit to Arches, which mainly consisted of car stops.

This is a decent hike and yes you should do (at least) this much. I say that because you can “just” go to Landscape Arch or use this same trail to go see some other Arches that are even further out (I mean like 7 miles out). Pictures of this Arch are tough because of where the trail ends, in the middle of the day, you’ll be staring at the sun and when you are closest to it, pictures will pretty much just be a silhouette. I posted some pictures. Check them out. Tunnel Arch and Pine Tree Arch are short jaunts off of this hike as well and should be done at the same time.

Completed this one as part of a larger hike also going to Double O, Navajo, and Dark Angel.
Crowds clear significantly after Landscape Arch.

Great views. Just entirely too many people with no trail etiquette.

Super easy out and back with the kids (8 year olds). We did it in the heat of the day 105 degrees and the kids survived with very little whining. There is a water fill station at the trailhead. There are multiple other arches off the landscape trail which makes it an easy way to see multiple arches in a relatively short period of time.

Mostly paved path, which makes it quite easy. Get there early to avoid the crowds. The real magic begins when you continue on to the Devils Garden Loop.

Massive arch that looks like it's falling down. Who knows how much longer it will be there.

lots of people on this easy trail when i hiked it, but a nice view of many formations and the arch.

This trail is closed for about one month. They are doing road work. Usually you could start at the sand dunes arch trail as an alternative but the rangers stop you at Devils Garden campground and trail head.

Landscape arch is a natural wonder. The trail to it out of necessity is gravel do to the heavy traffic. It leads to and is the beginning of the Devils garden loop trail. Don't stop at the landscape arch because you will miss the best the park has to offer.
