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

You reach Landscape Arch right after you get to the sand and it is a sight to see! There are some smaller arches on the way and if you want to scramble up some of the rock fins, the trail continues.

Easy trail with a great arch at the end. Good trail to do before breakfast (and crowds).

Great, great hike that's super easy. If you continue up the trail and climb the lookout rock, you can get some beautiful views of the mountains in the distance. Favorite hike in the park.

The arch is magnificent - no doubt about it. But the walk to get there is somewhat underwhelming and the crowds were insane. If you’re dying to check this one off your list, go very early in the day or off-season.

Gorgeous views from this trail to one of the longest arches in the world. The footing is very easy except for a little section right before the arch, but most people should be able to handle it easily. See it before it falls! Tunnel Arch and Pine Tree Arch are easy side trails to some cool natural wonders. Gotta do those while you’re at it! This would have been a 5, but the crowds are crazy!

Did this last October including the primitive loop. The main trail is nice (super easy tourist trail) but adding the primitive loop was sooo fun. It had rained during the early morning so some parts were pretty slippery making it a great little adventure. The scenery changes and color was fabulous.

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.
