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

I am very fearful of heights so this was my most challenging hike of all the arches. It was a challenge for me but it was worth it! Walking in the ridge gave great views and was just exillerating! We went in the afternoon and got back about 5pm. I would not recommend going any later, at least the when... More

This is the third time that we have hiked the Devil’s Garden. It is one of my favorite day hikes in the National Parks System. It is a good challenge, but not overly difficult. And best of all, there is beautiful scenery along every step of the trail. Plus the character of the trail changes several times throughout the loop,... More

We hiked the complete trail to Double O Arch and returned via the primitive trail loop.The first section is fairly easy going, graded path, After Landscape Arch, the trail gets a little more strenuous. If you take the primitive trail back from Double O Arch, I would advise caution as there are three places where things get a bit interesting.... More

Its hot, take lots of water and expect to hike. I mean "Hike" not just a fun stroll on a trail. Its intense. Not handicap accessible at all. So sad that all can't enjoy such beauty. Can walk 1/2mile to see one hole in rock or hike 8 miles to see lots of arches. The signs don't mention how far... More

We took this trail all the view to the Double O Arches. What a sweet surprise! It has a combination of all sorts of exciting views, shaded canyon, walking on a ridge, the largest arches in the world, and the double-O arches from the front and behind. When you walk on the ridge section, you feel you are at the... More

We only went to Landscape Arch, but also took the side trails to Pine tree and Tunnel Arch. The whole trip wasn't very long or strenuous, but it is very hot in the middle of the day. There are a lot of opportunities for pictures on this trail and a great way to see some arches on foot without spending... More

We started around 8 am but should have started earlier, it was hot and crowded. We did the full hike using the primitive trail for the return. Not much shade on the way back and we had to do some scrambling down the rocks but hardly anyone else was on the route.

We did the abbreviated version of this hike, doing the side trails to Tunnel Arch and Pine Tree Arch, then ending at Landscape Arch and coming back. We went in the evening as the sun was setting so avoided the midday heat. Landscape Arch is stunning and different than the rest of the arches in the park, and is worthy... More
