Water is too shallow to cliff jump.

Great hike and very easy and accessible for all ages.

Easy and short hike with an incredible view!

Hiked this three days ago and loved it. We hiked it in the evening and was saved by the clouds. My 14,12, and 9 year old kids really enjoyed it. Bring lots of water and try to hike it early or later in the evening if you have kids. The view at the top is worth it!

I visited a few years ago. It's a fun climb to the tracks, and to the rock art a little higher up. Also, we found more dinosaur tracks on a stone slab to the left of the rock art. I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere else. Enjoy!

This trail is great with lots of many loops and has shade. Great climbing points as well. Great hike for little kids since it’s very short.

This trail is beautiful throughout. I do recommend not going in the middle of the day though (if you’re doing the hike in the summer) because it can get very crowded and hot. Recommend bringing 1 quart of water per person at least.

Short easy hike to Mesa Arch. It is one of the best views i have ever seen.

Relatively easy hike. When you get to the bridge and short of water you can refill your bottle with the water seeping through the rock. Several spots to cool off if you choose to dip into the stream. I did.

fantastic views at end of trail

This is an easy walk along a dirt path. 4 stars only because I'm not a fan of how they let people climb all over under the arches. I think it should be roped off. We saw so many people up on the rocks, it was impossible to get a photo without them in it. Very cool set of arches though, and will be back some day when there's less people.

Took this short walk while on our drive thru the park roads. Pretty neat to see this huge boulder perched like it is. Easy walk.

I didn't walk out this whole trail. I went down a ways to get a view towards the east, but that was it. The Green River overlook is better than this one I think. You can't even see the Colorado river from here?? Was not impressed.

Short and sweet!

Trail is at the same trail head as Sylvester...at the end of an old ranch road that dead ends. Beautiful and worth every minute!

nice easy trail, nice arch , well used as it is the main trail when you first start off , early in the day in summer is best for this hike. A hike for the whole family .

Double Arch is one of my favorite arches for sure, the walk is super easy but usually pretty busy. A hike for everyone.

One of my favorite hikes now. Even though there is shade bring water when it's hot out. Some minor scrambling but just a pleasant hike with a great cavern at the end. This will be on my to do list each time I visit Moab. Highly recommend.

really east walk off the road , beautiful to see that many arches so close together. Went back at sunset and was so glad I did. A great little trail to take kids on as well. Pretty busy so good early if you can or if you can a sunset view is amazing!

I did this one at 5 am before the heat and sun came up as I wanted to watch the sun come up and hit the arch. Was well worth getting up early to see, so beautiful. Not too bad of a hike, one part is a bit of a work out but take your time and go early and it is not too bad. If you only have time to do a few hikes in the park make sure you add this one to your list.

Awesome hike! Not to many miles but still took us about 2 hours due to stopping because of heat. I recommend two or more bottles of water per person as well as a shirt than can be easily soaked by water (it helps with the heat). Not hard if you’re in decent shape, it’s the heat that kills so start hydrating the day before because it was so hot I got blisters and our car read 117 degrees. Definitely worth the heat thought, nothing like I’ve ever seen!

The review they give is good. Go when the weather is cooler.

This trail offers some of the best views of arches national park and the Utah valley . There is a steep climb that will take about 30-40 min and then a steep narrow ledge that leads you to the arch which is about 15 min . There is usually a lot of people on this trail especially in the evening . If you are going to this trail in summer plan on starting by 7:00 PM max and you can be back to the base by around 9:00 with sufficient time for pics .

7/5/2018. Amazing drive. Started at top of Shafer trail to Potash Rd. Some spots after decent into canyon were rocky, sandy and or steep. Conditions were very dry. Took about 1.5-2hrs. Did trail in a stock GX460 with g**dyear duratracs.

Note on trail rating/descriptions. There appears to be two for this area. One says easy and other medium and they blend together in reviews.

Wildlife, wildflowers and yes, poison ivy. I think we successfully avoided the poison ivy. The bridge and area around the bridge, amazing.

This was an amazing hike with great views from the valley floor and along rim tops. It was harder than we thought which was great. A lot of rock climbing up slick rocks which wasn’t to bad. Started trail at 7:15am and did t see another person. Exceeded our expectations on every level.

what a gorgeous hike - every where you look. I’ve hiked this trail over a dozen times and it never gets old!! there is always some sort of incline or decline; so towards the end, my ankles and my husband’s knees are sore. If you are going during the afternoon or for sunset; BE PREPARED!! Hide in the very few spots of shade you can find and bring at least 3 liters to a gallon of water. Moab sun WILL not think twice to kill you; it’s already taken someone this year. be safe, be smart.

My wife and I enjoyed this trail. The primitive trail was nice too and gave us some solitude.

Nice easy hike but did the straight through hike to all three arches sand dune to broken arch to tapestry
