It took us right at 4 hours to complete the Devils Garden hike of almost 10 miles. At times we were scrambling up or down slick rock and at other times making slow headway through thick sand, but always the views and geological attractions were fantastic and worth the effort. This is a "moderate" hike, in my opinion, not for... More

Overall, this hike was beautiful and offered exciting views and overlooks. I would recommend this trail to those who have half a day to spare. It took us four hours to complete the trail, but with lots of stops. As a teenager, the hike wasn't too strenuous or dangerous for the most part. There is a 500 feet elevation gain,... More

First off, if you're in the park to see arches, this is the trail for you. There were eight arches listed on the guide for this hike but we saw more which weren't included in the pamphlet. The Pine Tree Arch, Tunnel Arch, and Landscape Arch can all be accessed pretty easily on this trail. Past the point of Landscape... More

Not for the faint of heart or inexperienced hikers. Be sure to take water with you and be prepared for some baking-hot sun the whole time. Doing the whole trail, including the primitive loop, is worth it, but also may be challenging in places for those who are afraid of heights. I know I had a few tough moments, especially... More

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
