Did a night hike and was definitely blown away by the view of the city, the best view in my opinion. It’s a hard hike constant uphill hike but well worth it.

The arches was one of the best hiking trips I’ve been to. The trail is relatively easy although there’s a decent incline when ascending towards the dunes. Along the way there are some breath taking views that you can’t help and take some pictures. When we reaching the arches it definitely felt satisfying and the scenery was amazing.

Fun hike and really unique arch. Loved walking out on it! We sat and had a snack by the arch and had it to ourselves for awhile!

The directions on this app take you directly to the parking lot on wolf ranch road within the park. $30 per car gets you into the national park for a 7 day pass so if you have a group, go in one car if you can. We waited for 40 minutes in line around 11am to just get into the park. Parking is a bit crazy at that time too, but it seemed like the first wave of people were leaving around 12 and could get a parking spot right at the trail head. When we left around 3pm (we chilled out at the top for a while) there was no line to get into the park. I heard it’s a busy spot at sunrise and even more so at sunset. Oh and if you expect no one to be in the background of your pics here, good freaking luck, the trail is heavily trafficked with parents who don’t watch their kids closely on top of that. But it is certainly worth seeing at least once.

Mostly dry leading up to the creek. Needed microspikes and poles after that.

Great 2-3 hour there and back hike to an awesome destination! We went on a crisp 60 degree day in March. It can be a demanding hike since it’s almost straight up! Bring lots of water and good shoes. I definitely gonna put this hike on the early morning list to get that awesome sunrise shot!

Once you turn off Rock Canyon Trail it gets pretty steep. It took us 4 hours to get up and 1 hour to get down. The snow was fun but a little slippery coming down. Great view of surrounding mountains and peaks.

This is a lot harder than it looks but was amazing. I completed it on 21 February during snowfall and was blessed to get the Arch all to myself for a tad bit. Highly recommend it when it is not busy but be prepared.

The hike up is a series of switchbacks and steep enough that these Florida hikers were out of breath pretty quickly. how about we took our time and enjoy the view. There is a lot of traffic noise as you go up.

at the top there is a marker but it mentions nothing about Adams Falls. we went to the right and it appears we made the right choice. went down into a canyon and it became peaceful and quiet with the sound of rushing water.

There was still quite a bit of ice and so we were unable to make it to the waterfall. we stopped at the bridge and enjoyed the water and then hiked back.

At the marker we tried the other side and that basically took us along a ridge that overlooks the city. We didn't take that very far before we turned back.

Overall it was a nice outing and would be a good place to try again when the ice melts.

Great trail, sometime difficult to know where to go but follow the rocks and you’ll figure it out. Must take a picture standing on top of the arch!

Gear: snowshoes, ski poles, micro spikes, winter hiking gear, gators, gloves.

I didn’t wear/use any gear till I got to the stream/waterfall. Then I put on spikes, and used ski poles. At the saddle I put on calf-covering gators.

The snow above the stream was still firm for a few hundred feet then deteriorated to shifting and sloshy. Still manageable with spikes. The snowfield from saddle to summit was different. Numerous “snow boulders” had fallen and the whole snowpack was loose and appeared to be ready to slide. I stuck to the trail, ascending at about 130pm. I summited, and the trail down immediately presented challenges. The sun had melted some of it and weakened the trail. I had a fall just above a section of rock and snow and slid across all of it. The trail was giving way in the heat, but off trail would cause me to sink up to my hips. I called a friend before and after traversing the last of the summit to saddle down climb.

The trail the rest of the way down featured worsening conditions of loose/melted snow. So much fun.

There was quite a bit of snow on the ground when I did this hike and it was snowing as we went. The snow made the hike even more beautiful! The trail was already packed down from hikers before us! There were some steep parts which the snow made challenging but the waterfall at the top was totally worth it! By far my favorite hike in the area so far!

Nice packed trail today all the way to the top. Easily done with spikes but you kind of “skate” back down until you reach the Y with the main trail. Absolutely gorgeous 360 degree views from the top - well worth it!!

I would like to rate this somewhere between easy to moderate.I recommend to bring poles or crampons as there are many icy spots as we go up in the mountains. I saw many people sliding down. Overall it was great experience for me and would like to do this again in spring or summer.

Beautiful, fairly easy trail with a lot of places to get off the trail and explore. Fantastic photography opportunities as well. I’ve taken the dogs and kids as young as 4 and always enjoyed this hike.

If its difficult for you to follow the established trail, just hug the side of the rock ridge the whole way until you meet up with a very well defined path leading towards a rock scramble. Stay as far right as possible on this rock scramble, and you will run right into the lair entrance.

If you are feeling really adventurous, when you're in the lair and look to the bottom right of the rock scramble you will see a cave entrance. Bring a headlamp or flashlight if you want to explore the cave, but cave exploring is obviously very dangerous.

Great hike for all ages. Lots of snow right now but it is packed down.

Amazing trail. Easy for a decently active person to complete. I'd also like to thank the person that nicely yelled at the people underneath the arch to move so everyone else could get an amazing picture.

Awesome trail. Some parts are pretty steep and just about take your legs away but snow is very well travelled and packed in. I started the run in rock canyon and trail runners then put on my crampons once I hit the snow at the gate.

We just did the subway, we snowed shoed in from where the road is closed from too much snow. We hit the trail around 9. We got a little lost trying to find the right trail on snow shoes. We all made it safe and sound but ran out of day light in the canyon. We all were on head lamps for the last 4 hours or so. We started at 9 and and ended right around midnight. Most challenging hike we have ever done.!

Such a great hike and so beautiful!

I did this trail today after a night of snow. I wore yaktrax but nothing but hiking boots are really necessary. The trail does get more narrow and more powdery around the halfway mark. If you step off the trail, expect to sink into the snow up to your knee. I fell and sank into the snow a bunch of times but it was fun. Also because the parking lot by the trailhead/bridge was covered in snow, I parked along the road at the Mueller Park sign. It was about 500 feet further from the trailhead, but definitely a guarantee my car wouldn’t be stuck in snow.

Easy to moderate hike- did it with my two toddlers and the reward is worth it! Also glad we went in the off-season when the crowds were scarce! Can see why it’s the most popular trail at Arches NP.
