Amazing. Did it with kids 10 & 13 on a VERY hot day. It’s difficult in my opinion, but I think that had a lot to do with the heat.

A fun hike to this iconic Utah arch. Try to make it during cooler parts of the day. Shade to escape from the heat is slim.

Sweet hike. We arrived in parking lot at 730 am. lots of people. wouldn't recommend going much later than that!

we didn't see a single other person. you have to walk through the culvert to get to trail. follow cairns. literally no one else there. very close to corona arch by car

It was a great hike, especially the way up to the Partition and Navajo Arches. not too hard except for one steep climb

I loved this hike. Beautiful scenery! I did not see anyone else the whole time. I would recommend downloading the map as the cairns are difficult to spot in parts and some have been washed away. Absolutely stunning- can’t wait to do it again!

Spectacular! Description is accurate, harder hike getting to the arch and the return is pretty easy. We were even treated to a flute player under the arch!

Amazing at sunset. Took 35 mins up (we maintained a pretty constant pace). Could be tricky to see trail when walking up the sandstone but you can easily follow the crowds. It’s popular for a reason - don’t be deterred by the number of people!

Gorgeous !! Be sure to stop at Frame arch before delicate arch

We hiked this with my family yesterday. It’s a beautiful hike. It’s not difficult if you’re fit. My parents were slower but it wasn’t terribly difficult. The view was beautiful and well worth the small, short climb.

Oh my, what a hike. The stairs are killer! Enjoyed it very much, but be prepared for a somewhat long uphill hike back!

Awesome hike with breathtaking canyon views! We've hiked in Zion, Bryce Canyon, Grand Canyon, and Arches, and this hike tops them all. The final scramble up loose rocks is challenging but worth it. We relaxed in the alcove and took in the views.

Simple for kids, a bit long - so go in the morning when you get the shade. Lots to look at and some basic scrambling on the rocks. If you want an easy way - start at Courthouse Towers and go to the bottom of the stairs by the main parking lot. Otherwise, those stairs get you at the end of the trail...

Pay attention about half way through and you can look out and see Balanced Rock in the distance.

Our family loved it.

Really enjoyed running this trail. Got to the trailhead at 6am and only one car was in the lot. Unfortunately, I was a little under the weather but wasn’t going to miss an opp to get this run in.
Although billed as a mountain bike trail the slickrock was a joy to run on. I’ve run Gooseberry Mesa and it reminded me of that but without any other terrain.
Early is better as the rock will grab the heat and make it a tough go if you sleep in. Also, I had the trail to myself for about 7+ of the miles. I ran the main loop then added the practice loop to get just over 10 total. No other runners but a few MTB’s towards the end.
I ran in my On Cloutventure’s since they are almost like road shoes with a little grip.
The views are amazing and worth a few stops to grab some photos.
Don’t miss this trail if you’re in town.

Great hike. I skipped the last mile. I’d recommend people treat it as a 2 mile up and back and try to do it in under 2 hours. The first half mile is the only hard bit and it’s not bad. If you do that part late enough in the day it’ll be in the shade. Unfortunately the actual valley part is usually in the sun since the valley isn’t too deep. Great views.

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!

Great hike to do first thing in the morning to watch the sunrise. It gets very crowded as the day goes on, with some points of decent exposure.

We got there around 5:15 and arrived to Delicate Arch just as the sun was rising at 6. We were booking it up there because we didn't want to miss it. There were almost no people up there for about an hour and that's when we left as tons were coming up. They all had it way harder than we did. The sun was beating down and there is no shade. It's an excellent summer hike. Make sure to take lots of water. A ranger told us people die from dehydration every year on this hike. We saw lots of older people and people with kids on the bike just make sure you have lots of time and water if you're planning on going slow during hot times. Once at the arch it was a beautiful view all around and the arch was even better than the pics!

Awesome

Beautiful hike! Started it at 8:00am on Thursday morning. About 50 other people were already on the trail before I started. There was a line for standing beneath the gorgeous delicate arch in order to take a photo. Highly recommended.

Great hike for the entire family. It's not super difficult, but be aware the hike up is pretty intense in spots for someone that doesn't hike a lot. I think everyone can make it, but it is steep in places. Beautiful at the top, and lots of other places to hike around on the rocks once you get up there.

Unreal. Here’s a tip: It’s highly rated for a reason.

This hike is wonderful from start to finish! There is so much to look at and take in. Taking a lot of water is not a suggestion; it is a must!

Beautiful hike! Thank goodness for the breeze.

Great loop for all skill levels. Great for learning your bike with semi-technical lines and up and down hill single tracks. Decent amount of features for a track that stays under 4.0mi from head to tail.

Straight forward trail with amazing views everywhere you look. After reading about dogs and the ladder in most of the reviews, I now 'get it'. That ladder will definitely pose a challenge if you bring your pup but even if it does, the hike is still stunning, you just turn back before others have to.

Great views, the towers are impressive and the drive to and from the trail is worth the trip itself. You can't go wrong with this one.
