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

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
