We made the three mile round trip hike in early evening. Views are amazing. Hike is doable but suggest you wear sneakers or hiking boots as there are a few tough spots. That being said, I did see people making the hike in loafers and sandals. We were there 4th of July weekend so it was hot (about 95 degrees... More

Try to get to the trailhead as early in the morning as you can (somewhat less crowded, but more importantly, less hot). The Arch itself was surprisingly cool and shaded (which felt great after the hike up), and was like a natural amphitheater (lots of places to sit and the sound carries great). It was a lot of fun running... More

Delicate Arch is just incredible. Respect the other visitors who'd like to take pictures too -- grab your shot and then move away from the base of the arch.

My wife and I hiked the 1.5 is miles to see the sunset at the delicate arch. We got there later than we hoped and so tried to move too quickly up to the top. Although it does not say it in many of these reviews, the hike is strenuous. It is not particularly difficult, but it is a long... More

Although literally millions of pictures of this world famous Arch -none can do it justice. YOU MUST SEE IN PERSON. Hovering on the edge of a sheer drop off ( can't see that in most of pictures) and stories tall the Arch is SIMPLY FANTASTIC. Take the hike, it's worth it. Long and sometimes hilly climb but the end definitely... More

Reaching to delicate Arch needs bit hiking , if you are ok with Walk for 2 miles and little hiking then its a wonderful place to be.Amazing rock formation.

After the night on a campground in Moab we took a 40 minutes Hike up to the Delicate Arch. The hill is steep but it's totally worth it to go up until the top. We could feel a special mood around the arch, (the right place to take a break and enjoy the moment). It was pretty hot, so I... More

Breathtaking. Go early and watch the sun come up or go late and watch the sunset. The hike is doable for any age.
