If you're interested in a half day + hike this is the trail for you. The developed side is easy and is accessible for most everyone- however the primitive portion of the loop is more challenging. I would not recommend it in tennis shoes. I wore boots with traction and literally would have fallen if I hadn't. There are some... More

Walking up to the Landscape Arch is relatively easy even for families with small children. Going beyond this point on the standard trail needs much better skills, physical ability and no fear of heights. Path leads along slick rocks and high edges. In wintertime (like we did in January) might be difficult and even dangerous without traction devices. Do not... More

We hiked this trail during January. Not very many people hiking. A lot of arches to see during this hike. Once you hit double O arches you can either go back the same way you came or hit primitive trail. We took the primitive trail and was glad we did. There were a couple of spots where you have to...

This trail leads you to Landscape Arch. It is a very easy hike. If you continue on this trail it will lead you to Double O Arch. To get to the viewpoint is a little more strenuous but it worth the climb.

We hiked many trails throughout the west, in Washington, Montana, Utah, Arizona, California and Wyoming and this one was my husband's absolute favorite. It is so unique and full of eye candy. Bring lots of water though if you do it at the end of June. We took our Spanish in-laws there and they loved it too.

One of my favourite ever hikes. We did all the side trails to the various arches - Panoramic Arch is a must (don't slip!!). Double Arch is incredible - you must go through it and climb up the back hill for great photo op! Not for those afraid of heights - but if your ok - you will be rewarded... More

I opted to do the entire 7 mile loop including Primitive Trail. My advice is to do the entire main trail, maybe the Dark Angel portion if you feel like it, and then take the Primitive Trail to Private Arch, then turn around and head back the way you came. There are a lot of beautiful arches along the way... More

This is a beautiful walk but it is a long way but the red sandstone rocks and diverse rock sculptures make it worth while. On a cold day it can be very cold as the wind whistles through the rocks but it is worth it

6 of us did this hike to Double O arch in the afternoon. We had hiked to Delicate arch in the morning. It was a beautiful hike. If you are afraid of heights, there would be some challenging areas. People that are in reasonable shape shouldn't have any problems. Make sure to take plenty of water.

An actual depiction of this trial: I can try to give you a description of this hike without all the adjectives and subjective terms, such as easy, moderate, or difficult. The park rated this as difficult. It would fit various descriptors.. All the reviews re the wonderment and views are correct. The first section to the first 3 arches are... More
