Special place, short modest hike, easy to find the way back, destination is a special and unique scenic area with Indian art as a bonus. It is a must when near Goblin State Park. I would rate it very doable for most kids.

Extremely fun beginner-level trail. Would Recommend for families or single riders. Did experience some minor elevation changes, about 30 feet. The trail was mostly hard-packed dirt with occasional rocky areas, but did have some patches of sand. As a part of the Wild Horse Trail System, there were very clear maps at every intersection. However, some of the trails in the system are one way, despite not being marked one-way on the map. The trail system is located within Goblin Valley State Park, so park entrance fees do apply ($15 as March 2018). Ask about the trail at the fee station and the Ranger will give you a map of the trail system and directions to the trailhead. Extremely Fun.

Extremely fun beginner level mountain bike trail. The trail had some elevation changes of about 20 feet. I would recommend for families or individuals. There was nearly no traffic on the trail. Great views of the park. Keep in mind that there are some trails that are one-way, but not marked on the map as one-way. This is a part of the Wild Horse Trail System in Goblin Valley State Park, which means the state park entrance fee does apply. Ask at the park entrance station for directions to the trailhead. There are maps at every single intersection in the system, so navigation is easy.

We were able to drive all the way back to the highway and even under the highway bridge (tunnel), however soon after that the sand was deep, so we turned around as our vehicle was not high enough. As it was getting dark, we went back on the highway. From i70 west, we stopped on the shoulder and drove until we could see the arch. It is possible to see it from the highway if you know where to look.

A little difficult to find the “path”. But we made our own.

It was so beautiful and the “Window” was unlike anything I’ve ever seen!

Absolutely beautiful hike that is worth it at the end. Beware though - the trail is really hard to find, nonexistent if anything and I got lost in the swell at least 2-3 times making this more of a "moderate to difficult" hike versus "easy" on the way back I found the "easy" route that I'd classify as more "moderate" due to having to scramble in a few places.

I hiked with my lab (large dog, about 70lbs) that I had to help on/off steep places so I'd recommend the dog wearing a harness if you bring them. Lots of little pools of water in the swell for her to jump in and cool off for a drink.

The trailhead is also kind of hard to find, there's lots of "unsigned dirt roads" in this area, so just follow google maps and try to find the one that heads closest to the gps coordinates. Also not much cell service so have the coordinates keyed up before you lose signal.

Absolutely worth the hike! The cave is secluded and provides a gorgeous rest stop. Definitely a challenge to follow the trail, though. Get a good idea of where you're going when you start out otherwise you'll lose sight of the cave and get confused in the swell. I'd recommend this to anyone!

Couldn't even find the hike. We tried for a half hour and had To stop cause it got to dark. Wish we could have found it and that the trails were better marked in the whole area!!!

Super cool hike with pictographs and a massive pour off.

This is a steep technical ascent to one of the best view in Moab in my honest opinion. The trail leads up and around the side of a mesa where you look over into Jackson Hole which is basically a giant butte surrounded by a canyon forming a giant circle. From here you can continue to Pothole arch which is well worth the ride and on the way back you can ride an extremely technical route Rockstacker back.

This trail is my favorite in Moab. The way up is basically one huge technical climb. I'm primarily a downhiller and walked lots of the way but if you are into cross country this climb will be a very fun, and a very challenging test.
Once at the top, the views are simply spectacular. You have a 360 degree mountain view that is a great opportunity for a good picture.
Coming down is a technical downhill. You can make it down very quickly but if your not a downhiller everything is easy to go slow or even walk over.

Dutchmens arch is visible from I-70 if you know where to look. Take Exit 131 off I -70, and go west (south of the Interstate) and turn right on the second road. Keep right until you get to the Interstate., Go under the Interstate in the 4X4 underpass. When you emerge out of the underpass, take the first road to the left. The arch is on the right less than a mile.

This trail is a "Locals" favorite, and can be VERY busy. Amasa back is a P2P [point to point] trail of about 10 miles. Vertical climb is 1050 feet.
This trail is both technically and physically demanding but the reward of some stunning scenery is well worth it.
If it was not for the crowds, this could well be Moabs best ride, if possible do this trail on a weekday.
