I have hiked Angels Landing and Half Dome. I was prepared for a longer hike and a water obstacle after reading trail reviews. I thought this hike would be leisurely enjoyable and a break from tougher hikes. Haha! No it was not! We hiked counterclockwise and did a lot of boulder scampering. My 28 year old daughter had to pull... More

A lot of the reviews below give the pertinent details of doing the primitive loop of the Devil's Garden at Arches. I just have a few things to add. I am in my sixties with two artificial knees, and I did it! From all we heard while there, it is easier to do it counter-clockwise; you will be going up... More

This is nice area that is to stop to stop and picnic, has bathrooms, and trails, easy, moderate and strenuous to see more arches. It's a hiker's area. Be prepared to keep going around for parking spaces especially during the lunch area, so you may want to go early.

Wow, this is one fun hike, you are walking up VERY steep rocks walking on the top of these rocks and the views are amazing along the way. follow the trail marks ;-). Even though it is steep and challenging we did not feel unsafe at any point. Count on spending 2-3 hours on this trail.

I don't grant 5 stars lightly. I cannot add much new to what you can glean from the most recent 10 or 20 reviews. Huge variety of terrain and views. It's a moderately strenuous trail if you do everything. Perfectly pleasant in April at 80F in full sun, but the two of us drank our entire 3 liters. I cannot... More

Hiking the entire trail and stopping to take photos took almost 5 hours. It is not a hike for the faint of heart or anyone who is not in pretty good shape. Unlike any other hike I have taken this took me up on rock fins high above the floor of the canyon and across huge slick rock surfaces. I... More

We had planned to do the whole loop but when we got beyond landscape arch, my daughter was concerned with the steep drop offs on the side of the rock trail. I would have to concur with the some other reviews that said this trail is not for everyone. So we retraced our steps and headed out the other side... More

I'll start off by saying I only had a day in Arches, so I didn't do the loop. But I did the 4.2 mile hike till the Double O. It was amazing and everyone should do that if you have the time. Do not miss out on the arches on the side. The Navajo Arch was just amazing. Since I... More

There are several good reviews about this hike so there isn't too much to add. We are 60 and in pretty good hiking shape; did the 10 mile loop (including side loops and out to Dark Angel) in about 4 hours. There were a few spots of scrambling (not too bad) and one little cliff walk (plenty of space so... More

This is a great longer hike at Arches National Park. There are tons of arches en route, so with stops to admire the view, the hike took us about 3 or 4 hours. The beginning of the hike is on a very easy trail with lots of other hikers en route to see the Landscape Arch and a few other... More
