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!

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.

This was an utterly amazing hike and so completely worth it! Went early to avoid the heat and didn’t really see that many people. Beautiful views, challenging hike - loved it!

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!

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.

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

super hike, a little scrambling. nice views along the way; but the arch is mediocre at best as far as arches goes. awesome spot for sunset!! never see people here. don’t miss the petroglyphs just beyond the dino tracks before the trails separate.

Loved this hike did it at night and had our campsite set up already so just walked across the road from parking and smoked some cigars under the stars...

Beautiful hike but watch out for the poison ivy and take plenty of water

Swimming ? Any one knows of any places to swim along the ride?

My boys loved this trail.

Did this trail with two of our kids yesterday ages 21 and 10. Beautiful scenery but there is an abundance of poison ivy so be careful! There were some parts of the trail that were a tight squeeze on slippery rock but it was very manageable for all of us.

06/11 no poison ivy, just beautiful! Went at about 7am and it was a little chilly. Super easy, great starter for the day.

A great hike for a summer day! Able to take the dogs and it’s partially shaded so it wasn’t as hot as other trails in the area. Lots of water crossings, your feet will get wet! Nice scenery with the rock canyons, bushes, plants and stream/river! Be careful, there is a lot of poison ivy but easy to avoid- just be aware.

Total 5.0 miles. I would rate this as easy.

Very nice hike...the east rim part of the loop is more crowded, shorter and more scenic than the west rim section. Make sure to pack enough water.

Did this one June 16, 2018. One of my favorite hikes ever. Completely unmarked. Same parking lot as Sylvester but just walk in the opposite direction of Sylvester trailhead and you'll see a foot path. Again, completely unmarked...I was afraid we missed the turn to the parking lot but we just made sure to follow our footprints back to the parking lot. We saw a golden eagle which was amazing but tons of toads the size of a fist and water snakes (eek!!). Expect to get your feet wet. There were plenty of spots where we just had to walk through the creek. Follow the creek all the way to waterfall. We booked 11 miles round trip....so be prepared for that.

Awesome hike for a hot day with a great destination. The stream is cold and refreshing. There are small fish and a few crawdads in living in the stream as well. Make sure to take time to try and catch some! It's a blast.

Fun quick hike that ends with 2 awesome arches. Well marked and maintained trail to help get to the end destination.

Excellent and part shade was a bonus!!

really cool but you have to climb up to see the dinosaur tracks. there is a sign and a rock that has the tracks but it is up on this overlook. kinda steep. Cool tho!

A great short hike just outside of Moab, UT. Appropriate for children and dogs as well.

Great family hike. Our 5year old and 11year Old both loved this.

Crazy wild ride!! Not a big heights fan. Loved the climb and scramble. A little nervous twice, but we made it and it was awesome!!

Great trail and scenery. Our favorite trail in Moab.

Great hike! Two tricky parts for our toddler and dog but it was worth the beautiful views

We went about 30 minutes in and had a nice time. We liked that we could bring our dog, but parts of the trail were overgrown. It was dry enough that we did not get wet, but we could get close enough for our dog to drink from the stream. About half the time we were in shade and it was a nice walk.

Loved this hike. One of the most puppy friendly ones I’ve done. Lots of places for the dog to cool off. Pretty interesting views along the way.

Great quick hike with exceptional views. The arch is great but hardly the only standout feature. I did it with my pup. She did great but a less agile dog might struggle with the scrambles.

Really great views throughout the whole hike. The side trails to viewpoints are well worth it. We saw almost no one on trail once we got away from the visitors center. Bring lots of sunscreen!
