A fairly easy 1 mile trail

Best to walk downhill from the viewpoint, and have your driver meet you at the north end of the trail. An easy introduction to the park.

This is one of the first stops when you enter the park - don't miss it. Best in the morning or mid-afternoon. We didn't do the hike, but lots of huge, wonderful rock formations for viewing and picture taking. Wasn't busy when we were there, so it was very pleasant.

Like visiting Rock Cathedrals. Park avenue is magnificent. The color of the rock and the size of the boulders perched precipitously hundreds of feet above you are amazing.

The trail itself is quite nice and was delightfully empty when I hiked it during midday in August. It's a quick, easy roundtrip hike of about 2 miles. The scenic overlook near the Park Avenue trailhead offers the best view, but as with many other aspects of Arches, the constant throng of noisy tourists at the trailhead detracts from the... More

It is a beautiful hike. I didn't go far but what I saw was beautiful. I like the idea of this trail because you can walk it and have someone pick you up on the other side. This is great if you have someone with you who can't walk far and you want to walk a trail they can just... More

Loved the ride through the park. Used GyPSy Guide app to tell us about the area as we rode through. It was fantastic. Only problem was some haze that obstructed the long view.

We only walked a short distance on this trail but what we saw was absolutely amazing! Be sure to carry plenty of water as the heat and the altitude will get you.

Great hike in Arches National Park! Not strenuous but be sure to bring water because not much shade is along the trail. Very hot in the summer but try to do the round trip or its really to easy of a hike. The way back is slightly uphill but very doable.

This hike might have been my favorite at Arches. Fantastic canyon hike, only about a mile with great scenery. Just don't go in the middle of a summer day! My cars thermometer said 97, but it had to be at least 110 in the canyon. The end of the hike puts you at the Courthouse view point, so you can... More

This is an easy to middle range walk down hill to another parking lot. There are very tall cliffs on both side, pools of water in a sandstone wash and a good place to enjoy the company of others. Have someone drive the car to the lower parking lot so you do not need to hike back up. Or hitch... More
