I loved this hike. As others have said, it is steep at first and then a nice easy walk through the beautiful Hidden Valley. At the far end of the valley you have a choice – you can head up to the right through the rocks to get a very cool view of the entire valley (see posted pic) or you can continue straight and meet up with the Moab Rim Trail. I did both. Once at the Rim Trail, rather than heading left towards the Colorado River I went right towards the dead end/overlook. What an amazing view of the entire Moab valley. It was only about an additional mile and well worth it. Panorama posted.

Super steep to start, but if you can stick with it, the valley at the top is awesome. Not much shade. This was a great, lightly trafficked trail, off the beaten path in Moab.

Nice trail, some nice shady areas, but lots of poison ivy. Trail can be hard to follow at times. Wish i had worn chacos to walk through the water! Lots of dogs!

Such a lovely trail. And if you’re coming from Moab, the drive to the trailhead is stunning. As for the trail itself, well marked and great views. The end point made for a nice picnic spot with incredible 360 degree views.

stunning to do at sunset and then wait for the stars.

Easy, beautiful but busy!

Rushed here from Teton (yes a ridiculous long way, but only short vacation) to see the sunset and the views were stunning. The path is really clear and well laid out, with stunning views on both sides. Well worth it and a really easy trail.

one of the most beautiful hikes in the park with views in any direction. one narrow walk up a rock path and boom there you are looking at the Delicate Arch.

Right inside the main entrance. This is an easy stretch of the legs and especially a great intro for first timers to Arches NP. It has that "Mars" feeling for the newbie---especially if visited just after dawn or just before sunset. The shadowing and sky color make it surreal.

One of those Classics that everyone just HAS to do.

I would call it an easy hike. Get there early-ish if you want a photo of the arch by itself and w/o people.

I've been wanting to do this hike for a long time, and it was so worth it!

Not to tiring, amazing views of corona arch. I’d go early because this hike can get busier midday

Conveniently close to highway 128 campgrounds. Great hike with a spectacular view of morning glory arch at the end. Follows a river with lots of poison ivy growing, but as long as you can identify it it’s not hard to avoid. We used a preventative lotion before and poison ivy wash after just to be safe.

Crowded, straight up stairs the whole way, and an underwhelming view of delicate arch

Pretty views of a unique section of arches, but much of it is visible from the road too. Go if you want to take some nice photos, otherwise the stairs make it pretty difficult for a 2 mi hike

Great trail. Pretty well marked. Got there around 7:30am and had no issues finding a spot in the parking lot. There were a fair amount of people coming down from the sunrise hike, but actually not too many people starting the hike at that time.

Also went back and did this hike at night and it was completely empty. The view of the stars was amazing. Just make sure to bring a head lamp and download the map before you go just in case you lose the cairns in the dark.

The trail was shady with multiple water crossings all of the way up. I honestly didn't even notice the arch at the end until someone told me to look up. There is a nice rest area at the end with slick rock, water, and lots of shade. CAUTION: There was SO MUCH POISON IVY. The last 1/8 of the trail was a forest of poison ivy on both sides of the trail. Be very careful bringing dogs and children.

Easy walk (about a mile) to the first pool of water. There you can 'cliff jump', swim, and see beautiful waterfalls. If you wanna go further you can backtrack and loop around to go to the upper pools. This is a nice hike due to the low commitment of it. You can hike just to the first pool or go up the second and third, you decide! The water is ice cold so make sure to work up a good sweat on the trail. The only downside is the parking lot at the trailhead is small and the police come around often to ticket cars parked on the dirt road up so expect to park in the neighborhood below and walk an extra mile to the trailhead.

Nice shady hike along the stream to the arch. Many beautiful views and vistas along the way. Warning - lots of poison ivy, so stay on the trail and it is easily avoidable. Prickly pear are starting to bloom. There is a nice half-mile side hike in the canyon to the south at the 1.2 mile point from the trailhead that ends in a nice waterfall grotto - no water flowing at this time, but still worth it if you want a little extra. Stay in the stream bed to get there.

Nice, short and easy hike. Some great views but viewpoint 2 seemed inferior to 1. More up and down than we expected.

Short, easy hike. But worth the views

We did this trail with our 7 month old in the backpack carrier and our husky/golden retriever dog. We loved it, and it was easy enough with baby. Totally worth doing for the arch at the end, it's an amazing sight.

Amazing hike! The water all along the way made it so much fun, especially for our dog. I wore my Merrell hiking sandals, so I walked in the water a lot of the way. Our 7 month old baby loved playing in the sand once we reached Morning Glory and we enjoyed a nice little lunch and relaxed for a little. It's now one of my favorite trails.
