Good little hike in the Devil’s Garden. This is good when you don’t have time to do the longer loop.

Easy hike with some stunning stretches of walking among giant structures. Tunnel arch was just okay - do it for the easy amble.

Great little hike, short but steep at the fork between this and landscape arch. Tons of shade and photo ops at pine tree arch. Take a brake there and relax before the the walk back up.

Good trail, the heat definitely made it tougher, so if possible go in the morning or evening (and bring lots of water). If you're just going to see Landscape Arch, I would recommend going the extra half-mile to see Pine Tree and Tunnel Arch. Landscape Arch was cool because of its length, but the other two arches were probably just as interesting (and had less people), I also got better pictures on Pine Tree and Tunnel. Towards the beginning of the main trail you'll see a cool sand hill in a little canyon that makes for a cool picture. We also thought the Double-O Arch and some of the things on the less-improved trail sounded cool but we didn't have time for them so we may be back.

This is a splinter hike off of the trail to Landscape Arch. The Tunnel Arch was ok but the Pine Tree Arch was a nice gem. I had it to myself for about 10min. The trail itself was easy.

May 2019 trip to Southwest, fifth visit to UT, last time was 10 years ago in late spring. Day 5 This was mine first National Park I visit 22 years ago in late spring. First time at Devils Garden. More of stormy weather on the way, yet parking was still extremely crowded. I did those two arches first on hike at Devils Garden. Pine Tree is very nice.

Crampons would be helpful, but you could make it there without. Short, easy hike with a good pay off. It’s nice to be able to do Landscape, Pine Tree, and Tunnel arches all in only a couple of miles.

If you are checking out Landscape Arch, take the 10 minutes to quickly see these two arches. Tunnel Arch isn't much to write home about, but Pine Tree Arch is a beauty.

Lovely drive. Don’t underestimate the amount of walking is needed to actually see the arches!

Hike to landscape first for kids since coming up from tunnel and pine tree is a little climb but then you’d be done.

Hike was fine, but not worth a special visit to do. Instead, continue on to Landscape Arch.
