This was my first trail hike in the LBL. I've taken my kids and grandkids a few times and always enjoy it very much

I've done this trail twice (so far). LOVE IT!!

one of the most beautiful I've hiked

Great views

Great beginner trail. Not very well marked but impossible to get lost. Nice nature spot for being so close to the city!

I jogged a few miles alone today and felt very safe, stayed on the asphalt from the Sunset Inn trailhead to the bridge. Love this entire trail system and would recommend!

Beautiful and challenging for hike GO FOR IT

Great hidden gem. Lots of trail loops

Great trial. Look for gnome

It is a beautiful trail. Will definitely hike this one again.

Perfect level of difficulty. Tons of steps. Devils gulch was a lot of scary fun for the kids.

Very easy “hike” with some nice scenery and wildlife.

Loved this trail. It was a bit longer than expected (we clocked 6.6 miles with a few side stops). Had trouble finding the trailhead but the map.me app helped. Great hike with lots of gorgeous views, it kept getting better all the way to the end.

The terrain made for a very fun hike. The views were incredible, especially the view of Double Arch.

Great hiking

Not much elevation gain, but several stream crossings that made for a fun short hike.

This is one of favorite easy trails.

Awesome experience for a shorter hike!!

It was a stunning trail, but I'll never hike it again. Also, if you're not use to hiking, this trail is not for you.

Very nice hike. Muddy today, but not too hard. The arch is worth the walk.

beautiful walk in the fall woods.

This is a beautiful trail following along a creek, super easy to do. It was a bit muddy at times, but it wasn't a big deal.

wow, I thought I had seen all the arches , this is a must see!! the little falls past the arch is so beautiful... don't miss this hike!!!

If you have kids or just a short time in the gorge, you can do Angels Window, Whistling Arch and Sky Bridge and see 3 arches without much time,travel,or effort.

I didn’t mind the gravel road. It follows a ridge line through the woods and was very pleasant. We combined this hike with Star Arch which made a 6.25 mile hike. It was easy walking with staircases for the few steep sections. Some views of Courthouse Rock and nice views from the arch.

Great arch! Easy to reach the top. A little scary going down to actually see the arch. You have to scramble down a sandstone face to a narrow one foot wide ledge at the edge of a sheer cliff which you follow to the arch. Don’t attempt if you are not sure-footed or if you are afraid of heights.

‘This is NOT a moderate trail!!! If the section between Bison Way and the Adena Arch were any more difficult we’d need respelling gear. Indian Staircase is one of the best spots in the gorge, but skip Adena Arch or do it as a spur and take Sheltowee back to Bison Way. This route is given in the “Indian Staircase “ trail. We hiked this route to allow my dying father to relive his gorge memories through the photos. I don’t think we’ll go this route again. If you do decide to hike it, go clockwise. This puts you going DOWN Indian Staircase, but that is better than going down the cliff from Adena Arch. My Dads directions: At the first side trail off Bison Way, go straight up the steep hill. When it looks like the trail ends, look up. You will see roots and vines in a crack in the rock. Climb them. Then you come to sandstone without a real path that you scramble up. Adena Arch is at the top. After that you just follow the cliff edge on your right... You know what? He hasn’t been there in at least 10 years but that was a perfect description. I guessed I thought he was exaggerating since the trail was rated moderate. Also, make sure you use the app to follow your progress on the trail map. There are a lot of unmarked crisscrossing paths.
