We went in January so it was cold and icy. The majority of the trail was sheeted in a thick layer of ice. Still managed to hike just fine (albeit a bit slowly) and safely in regular running shoes. The view is breathtaking. This is my favorite hike at Arches so far. Kid-friendly as long as you have patience with the ice, no crazy drop offs or anything.

Went in January, trail was muddy and a bit icy but fine. This is a very short hike but do not skip it! The double arch is breathtaking and gets better and better if you can scramble up a bit and see it more up-close. Just be careful of the slippery rocks as the end, but this is a can’t-miss!

Great place for kids to explore! Lots of caves and little slot canyons and just so fun. The arch is cool too. Just be careful if you hear any rumble sounds, there could be falling rock. We had some small ones sprinkle on us when we were in a cave, didn’t realize what was going on until after, so it was a good reminder to be careful!

This hike was awesome, once we got on the right trail! This probably isn’t a common mistake but we saw the big stop sign at the railroad tracks and assumed we were supposed to turn right and hike on the side of the train tracks. We went quite a ways before realizing our mistake. You’re supposed to stop and look for trains, and then cross the tracks. You don’t hike along the tracks. The part of the trail right after crossing was quite icy, but after that it was clear and so pretty! The ladder and the ropes add a fun feeling of adventure. I’d say this is kid-friendly if your kids can handle climbing ladders (just a few steps) and heights (going down with the rope was a bit scary for mine, but they did great!).

Amazing sunrise through the arch! Definitely have to get there early to get a spot in between the tripod cameras.

I've hiked this several times, but never in winter, so I hiked this in January with my 7 year old. The trail is rated difficult by the park, but experienced hikers will find it moderate to easy during summer months. In winter it is more challenging. The last 0.2 miles, where the trail goes along a ledge, were covered in an total ice sheet, which made it pretty scary. Bring micro spikes or creepers if you plan on doing this in the winter. Others were hiking in skater shoes and converse sneakers which is NOT ok. Although we got through it, it was not without its moments and my 7 year old cried. There were other kids there, but it definitely took more adult assistance, hand-holding and in some spots carrying to get through the ice. Ice aside, winter was an amazing time to experience this without crowds.

Lovely trail and views! You'll want some sort of traction device for your boots right at the end. 90% of the trail is just rocky or muddy, but the last 10% is very ice and somewhat steep, so our chains for our shoes came in handy. People were still hiking without them, but it was much more difficult and dangerous for them.

I hiked this trail in August 2019 just after my visit to the Canyonlands. I must say that the views are well on par with those in the Canyonlands. Given its proximity to both Arches and Canyonlands, I’d recommend not to skip it if you’re in the area. It’s definitely worth it. As a bonus it’s also less trafficked.

Beautiful trail with easy access from town.

I never heard of this trail in the places I looked. My jeep rental company told me about it. I was so glad they did. It was beautiful. The rocks and variety of colors are anazing. Completely snowy so so glad we had our jeep. If you go past the end there is this gorgeous valley at the top that is jaw dropping. The river crossings are fun and pretty without being dangerous at all. Easy trail but I could see where it could get really muddy at times.

We did this in a jeep and the views were unreal. We did not dare to do the very last part of it as it was icy and looked way too scary. It was our first time jeeping and it was not bad at all. May require someone to spot you in a couple of places where jeep might hit ground if you are not careful. I took one star off because it does take a long time and you have to back track the whole way to get out which seems to take forever. But Schafer was closed so that was not an option.
