Cook petroglyphs not that many but worth taking the loop to see.

Pretty cool; don’t think this hike is even close to 0.5 miles though, way less! It’s just a loop that cuts off of the Delicate Arch trail and the petroglyphs are awesome to see in person.

This is super short and easy. It’s at the bottom of the Delicate Arch trail.

Walked out to see the Indian art panel. Very nice one actually. Very defined. It's worth the walk out here and isn't far from the parking lot. The Wolfe ranch has an interesting history to it too.

This is a cool little stop on either the way to or back from Delicate Arch. Nice petroglyphs and cool Pioneer cabin

This is hardly a trail in its own right. We hiked it in conjunction with the Delicate Arch trail, making it a nice "cool-down" walk to some well-preserved petroglyphs. Wolfe Ranch is just a few yards from the parking lot and is comprised of a couple clay brick huts and a small livestock arena.

Like most of Arches NP this trail is very very crowded. Much of the trail is blocked by families trying to take pictures and scowl if you try to walk by them. While the views are great its hard to rate any higher due to the sheer number of people.

Simple hike most any should be capable of doing. Pectrographs well preserved. Wolfe homestead is amazing. To live in that dugout and then to move to the still simple cabin. Rough pioneer life.

Crowded due to the traffic from Delicate Arch Trail. Check it out while you're heading to the arch.
