It is great hike but you need to start early to avoid crowds. We were there by 7:30 and parking lot was already half full, when we were leaving around 2pm there were no free spots and people were looping to find a place. In the morning it was not crowded and we managed to be there almost alone but... More

We decided to complete this trail despite some of the (in my opinion) overly negative reporting. It is a good idea to start early before the crowds arrive; we took a steady drive into the Park and were at the trail head by 0730. We walked clock-wise so that the we had the opportunity to see the main feature arches... More

The trailhead has plenty of parking for cars, campers, and buses bit get there in the morning to find a spot. The trailhead has bathrooms Nd a wTer source for those forgetting to bring water. This is very important since you will definitely need water for your hike regardless of the length. If you are camping at Devils Garden Campground... More

Well worth getting up at the crack of dawn to enjoy the cooler weather, beautiful sunrise, and beauty of this trail.

Go early or late to fully appreciate this hike. We ended up not going all the way because of the heat and because there were so many families. There are still opportunities for good photos and with a huge parking lot, it's easy to get a space even with the crowds. Bring water.

We came here in July 2015 with our three kids (9, 11, and 4), and we did the primitive loop and all of the side trails, and had a great time. It was unbelievably beautiful and surprising and unique and we had such a great time. My husband and I are long-distance hikers, and we have seen a lot and... More

This trail holds many spectacular views and vistas, but make sure you bring at least two bottles of water per person when using the primitive loop. Cairns along the trail, especially past the Double O Arch, can be hard to find so refer to your map of the trail often. I would recommend hiking this trail first in Arches Park,... More

I really enjoyed this walk. We went at dusk when there weren't many people around. There is lots of climbing on rocks and parts were white challenging. It does take you past a few arches though. Very cool

Devils Garden is a stunning area of Arches NP and the well-used Devils Garden Trailhead sports a massive yet still full parking lot of visitors from all over the world. Go early to avoid the heat and the parking congestion, take the side spur to Pine Tree Arch for the perfect desert Christmas card photo with its red sandstone and... More

The Devil's Garden trail takes in a whole array of arches and features, the main ones being Landscape Arch and Double O Arch; other arches can be visited off short side trails and are worth the effort. There are various options from a simple out and back to Landscape Arch which is just 1.6 miles, to the whole trail loop... More
