The hike up to Delicate Arch took some time but was SO worth the effort. Amazing views, pristine sky, breathtaking. Great photo ops. Be sure to wear hiking shoes, put on suntan lotion and bring lots of water. Some of the rock is very slick so its important to be aware of where you walk!

What every visitor to Arches National Park—and essentially everyone headed to Moab, Utah—wants to see the most is Delicate Arch. A most widely recognized landmark in Arches, this freestanding natural sandstone arch is depicted on Utah license plates and on postage stamps commemorating the state's centennial, as well as on the Utah state quarter (part of the America the Beautiful...

The Arches National Park was one of the best experiences I've had across several continents. The Delicate Arch was one of the greater views throughout the park, but frankly, so was everything else! Sunrise to sunset, we explored the arches and climbed, walked, ran, and posed near most of them. Would definitely return!

The hike to Delicate Arch was more strenuous than we thought. We didn't realize it is rated as "Strenous". Start the hike early and be sure to bring enough water. It gets very hot and there was not much shade. Read the information the ranger gives you after you pay the entrance fee. It will tell you how much water... More

Wow we really loved the time we spent here. The arches are mind boggling. All the hikes we did were very rewarding with amazing views. We also did some mountain biking which was butt kicking fun all the way around. Wish we had stayed longer to do more exploring.

Don't get me wrong, Arches National Park (and especially Delicate Arch) is beautiful and worth a visit, but I don't think it quite lived up to the immense hype. The hike to the arch is very hot in the summer and all uphill, and most people will not be advanced enough hikers to get very close to the arch. Still... More

We love MOAB and Arches National Park. This place is amazing and lots of good hikes. I heard there are a lot of excellent bike trails as well. Canyoneering is also another activities to do here. Plenty of things to do and the whole place have so much to offer.

Even though it says September 2015, I had to choose something for that field, but it's been since September 2011 that I hiked in Arches National Park. Although it's been a few years since I hiked to Delicate Arch, I can't get the memory out of my mind. The beginning of the hike seemed a bit more crowded with other... More

After a fairly strenuous but enjoyable hour long hike you reach a nice enough arch with about 200 people jostling for a spot to plant their tripod. As the sun sets, and the shadows grow long, the tempers start to fray. Anyone dithering near or under the arch for a photo earns themselves hollows and shouts from the crowd. The... More

They're asking for a rating for Delicate Arch? Delicate Arch is perfection. Doesn't matter if you hike to it or view a picture of it while you're thousands of miles away. Delicate Arch is perfect however you look at it. I've probably hiked to Delicate Arch a dozen times since my first trip to Arches in 1973, and I'll hike... More
