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

This hike is beautiful- and difficult if you plan on doing the primitive trail on your return. The initial trail to all of the arches is a moderate hike, with many beautiful views and places to stop. The terrain is constantly changing, so you'll never be bored. The primitive trail return track is difficult- only attempt it if you have... More

Such an amazing place to hike in the park. If you don't have the time or energy, make sure to at least walk the 40 minute loop to see tunnel arch and pine tree arch. You will not forget it! We were able to spend about 15 minutes alone at pine tree arch as well to really make it a... More
