The Landscape Arch was on my must-see list. The path out to it is an easy walk, and you can take a quick detour to visit the Pine Tree Arch. I did not have the time to take the more strenuous primitive trail, but I was very happy I took the time to see the Lanscape Arch.

A great trail to see some of the more impressive arches and to potentially find some solitude. The first two sections of the 7-mile loop are quite crowded and easy to moderate in difficulty. The crowd thins out after each of the first two sections. If completing the primitive loop (third section) be sure to start early to avoid the... More

This 8 mile hike was SO much fun! We did the big loop with all of the off-shoot hikes. It had gorgeous views, especially on the hike up to Double O and Dark Angel. The primitive loop was less crowded than the main route and I would suggest doing this if you want something with less people. My only complaint... More

We drove by Devil's Garden our first day at the park - it was the afternoon and there was no parking. So we got up early and started our second day on this trail. Plenty of parking at that time, although the trail became crowded during our hike. We were there in early May and it was COLD. Check the... More

Woow, this one is a really must do thing in Arches, firs part of the trail is full of "sunday" hikers, but the other part is really nice trail on the rocks with few places which are "airy" and soo nice, sometimes you climb directly on the rock up on the trail. It is a panorama trail where you can... More

My husband and I hiked the Devil's Garden primitive loop trail in May, 2014. The scenery was beautiful while the trail wasn't crowded and provided plenty of fun adventure. It's a strenuous trail that requires climbing up tall rocks and then stepping or scooting down. I have some fear of heights but did fine on the trail and, most of... More

Really enjoyed this hike, saved it for the last day of our vacation in beautiful Utah and it was a wonderful way to end. So many different arches, gorgeous views, fun and challenging terrain-what more can you ask for. Landscape Arch was incredible, but Navajo Arch was our favorite. Took some extra time at Double O Arch to enjoy our... More

We had read about this hike and were excited about it but it was even way better than we thought it would be. We knew we would hike through gorgeous rock formations and see arches, but it was really fun and had more adventure than we thought. We did it closer to sunset and had some gorgeous views, we also...

Although we had to share the trail with some VERY loud people, the hike was fantastic. The 7 arches are all different and each is impressive in its own way. The mild scrambling, especially on the primitive loop section, was enjoyable and the sweeping views throughout made this a very worthwhile 5 hours spent.
