Short downhill hike near the Arches National Park Entrance with spectacular views of red rock fins and towers. Time: 30 to 60 minutes Arches offers a landscape of contrasting colors, landforms and textures unlike any other in the world. The park has over 2,000 natural stone arches, in addition to hundreds of soaring pinnacles, massive fins and giant balanced rocks. This red rock wonderland will amaze you with its formations, refresh you with its trails, and inspire you with its sunsets. From Park Avenue parking area, the trail descends steeply into a spectacular canyon and continues down the wash to Courthouse Towers. If you have a shuttle driver, you can begin at one point and be picked up at the other. For round-trip hiking, retrace your steps along the trail rather than walk along the park road.

The view is beautiful but what you see at the lookout is same as what you see down the trail. Not worth the time to hike down unless you have time to kill.
We made the mistake of thinking this is just a simple trail and we could just run down and back up with no problems. But let me tell you that was the biggest mistake we ever made. Although the trail is short we went out around 3pm and with no water on that trail. We've done many trails before but nothing prepared us for the horrid desert like heat! I almost didn't make it up those last steps.
Don't mistaken a simple hike like this. You must be well prepared with sun protection and water even for this type of trail.

My family went on this, including our 8 and 10 year old kids. We all really enjoyed the trail. The hike in the canyon was beautiful with lots of interesting formations to see. The trail itself is pretty easy, although the constant uphill on the return trip can tire your legs some. Nothing too strenuous though.
