If you go just past the parking lot for the hike to Delicate Arch, there's a viewpoint that gives a very clear view without the time and crowds that the actual hike require.

Different to see in person as compared to a picture. Seeing with your own eyes you get a grasp of how expansive it is.

As the most famous arch in the park, the destination is worth a bit of a strenuous hike but be warned, you have to go on a ledge that is pretty scary for people who are afraid of heights. It has a cliff wall on one side and a large drop off on the other. You also have to cross... More

We weren't sure whether we were going to like the delicate arch. Usually something as famous as that doesn't live up to the hype but we got out there first thing in the morning and loved every bit about it. The hike was great. Good balance between adventure and safety. I can imagine it would get really busy on weekends... More

This was a challenging hike especially for those of us who have a fear of heights. But I sucked it up and went and glad I did. My husband just encouraged me along. I got some great pictures of the arch and met some fun people along the way.

This one of the "MUST SEE" things! Delicate Arch is SO beautiful especially during sunset but not easy to find a parking spot because of limited space available (extension is under construction). Please see my trip and pics from the line here: http://www.ramblr.com/web/mymap/trip/harris/104227/

This entire experience was amazing. I've been on this hike about 4 times and this last time we chose to do a night hike with just the full moon to light the way, and it was the best time ever. We only got lost a little bit.
