Decided to do this on a whim while visiting CO. Up and up we went. This climb up will beat a stair master any day! Grateful for the shade. Views at the top were amazing. Be prepared to use hands to climb up and down some boulders. Walking sticks are a plus.

Fun short hike! Path was rocky but nothing technical at all, just be careful where you plant your foot. Saw one small group over the whole hike. Beautiful views of N. Arapaho and Long’s peaks.

Absolutely incredible views from the top. The trail is easy to follow. Plenty of spots to stop and take a breath along the way.

HikingRockyScramble

Nothing but spectacular. This trail is very well marked and there are some boulder fields on the way but nothing too daunting. I went to flatiron 1/2 and then traversed to Royal arch and back down. Met a ranger named Lisa on the way back and she taught me how to pronouce “chautauqua”. Also she recommended a burrito place called “Illegal Pete’s at the Pearl street mall area and that was a delicious burrito. Happy hiking folks.

HikingRockyScramble

STEEP. This trail is a steep hill for about a mile, then a bunch of steps for about 0.5mi and then straight scrambling for about 0.5mi. There’s a bit of a false summit where you think you’re done but you’re at the top of the rock next to where you’re going, so you need to scramble sideways and back up to finally hit the arch. Not too bad for a rock climber to attempt, but just know you’re going straight up nearly the entire time. We saw a lot of older folks and chihuahuas who weren’t able to make it. We are visiting from the East Coast and we still were fine doing it in 2.5 hours total (and in Keens), but if you’re scared of scrambling then this ain’t for you. We started at 6:15am and caught some of the sunrise and we were glad we went so early— on the way down we passed hundreds of people. During Covid times I just don’t really wanna be smashed up next to folks in a skinny rock chute with one of us climbing up and the other going down! So go early!

HikingGreat!Rocky

This was the hardest but most rewarding trails I've ever completed. My boyfriend and I took multiple breaks (elevation change and intense incline). Very rocky and strenuous, but we saw some incredible views. Once you reach the top, the view at the arch is truly breathtaking. (pun kind of intended) It's a great accomplishment to finish this trek. We were very sore that evening and the next morning. And frankly, exhausted. It was worth it and so fun!

HikingGreat!

Great trail. 100% worth it A lot of rocky steps during the second half FYI. Not too much traffic in the AM. Parking lot at ranger station was 1/2 full at 7am on Sat morning. Paid parking. 3 hours was about $8.00

Not going to lie it got pretty tough at some parts, but the view at the top is unbeatable. Would definitely recommend if you want a rewarding challenge

HikingGreat!

Took this trail for a sunrise hike. Gorgeous view of Boulder and the horizon. It was super early in the morning so obviously there wasn’t really anyone else on the trail so I have nothing in regards to foot traffic but still one of the prettiest hikes I’ve done.
