Great views and a good hike, best to go early cause it gets hot later.

Very good trail. Need careful tire placement in some spots, didn't have any body damage concerns. Took several alternate (harder) routes.

DId this as a warmup trail for the first time in MOAB. Took a couple of the "alternate routes" to keep it interesting. Not sure why this is rated as hard. I would give it an upper moderate rating at best.

Easy out and back trail. But fully exposed so can be hot. Amazing views at the end and no crowds like other tour bus stops in Canyonlands. Incredibly quiet and peaceful spot. Highly recommend if you want a quiet, easy hike. We did many hikes in our recent trip to 7 Utah parks and this made the top 3 on everyone’s list.

this hike is awesome in all seasons.
bring water and go early in the summer; bring a walking stick and sunglasses in winter. it is kind of a beastly uphill climb in the first half mile; but worth every second. if I can do it; most anyone can.

once you get up top - there’s views for days and secret treasures to be found all over. secrets of nature & secrets of the ancients ;)

bunnies, lizards; falcons and tons of wildlife.

PLEASE be polite when heading down the residential road to this trailhead

The short hike is suited for just about all ages and abilities. Very crowded (parking lot full) at sunrise but less crowded by mid-morning. I recommend going later in the morning because you can still get some great photos of the canyon through the arch without the crowds!

We arrived just after sunrise yesterday and had the Butte all to ourselves. From atop Aztec Butte you’ll have super views of the surroundings to include canyons in the distance. We saw a herd of mule deer wander by the base of the butte as we sat on top. This is not a hard hike, but if you have issues with your knees or ankles you should not do this as there are many sections at pretty steep “all fours climbing” going up the butte and some “scoot on you butt” sections coming down. Don’t forget to stop by the granary!

Trail was very crowded around 2 pm in the afternoon. Starting out trail is very well marked and you know which way to go. Once you get to the bottom of the canyon there is not much signage and multiple off shoot trails which can be confusing. Most of these trails are for ATV/UTV. We had a 16 Jeep with 6 inch lift and 35 inch tires. Seen multiple people doing this in stock 4x4s and I wouldn’t see that being a issue.

This trail is very scenic but not for the faint hearted. You ride along a cliff Edge climbing some boulders. Did this in a Jeep with 6inch lift and 35 tires. Didn’t need to use lockers. I have a little experience and I was slightly challenged by a few obstacles. We did this trail on our second day of the trip so I had a good feel for the Jeep we rented.

Very cool Trail, we did this trail in 16 rubicon with 6 inch lift 35in Baja tires. I would suggest if there is your first time off-roading to start with something slightly easier to get a feel for your vehicle.

there are other trails at the fork in the beginning that are worth doing as well, this was an amazing arch to see in person even at dusk, wanted to continue but the daylight gave out, will definitely do again to trek further

easy trail, but the views were amazing, get a nice 360 view from the top of the rock at the end

definitely a must do trail at arches, steep rock incline at one point but short, worth it at the end, go early went at sunrise coming down there was a flock of people coming up, petroglyphs are near the beginning of the trailhead

Amazing trail, but strenuous. Saw many people with flip flops and unprepared for the hike. The hike is difficult but so worth it. Take breaks and drink water . A Bucket list must do

A very nice trail. The waterfall and pool are a nice treat for the eyes and feet!

Awesome for sunrise pics! It does get quite crowded with photographers so make sure you get there early to get a good spot viewing the arch and canyon below.

Fun hike but it sure does get more difficult at the end as you scramble up the rocks of the butte. But definitely worth the gorgeous view!

Easy hike just make sure you stay to the left at the fork in the canyon. The swimming hole is really beautiful tucked inside the alcove. Br sure to check out the petroglyphs on the canyon wall when you’re navigating the slanted rocks at the beginning of the trail.

Great, short, easy hike with amazing views!

Gorgeous hike at Arches! We got to the trailhead around 7am and it was pretty packed, but definitely plenty of parking. There’s a giant rock to climb up so the elevation gain can be a kicker but it’s worth it. Great photo opportunity at the end but there will be tons of people in your pictures!
