On this loop you go under and over the arches. It's not very strenuous except for the stairs up the arch. Don't miss Fat Man's Squeeze or Charity Creek Lodge. There are lots of windflowers in early May,

Well worth the short, fairly easy hike. So amazing to see two arches formed together...one of nature's lessons in the power of the environment.

The round-trip hike of 1.4 miles is a small sacrifice for what you see when you arrive here. Step softly because you can feel the moccasined feet who went before you. You can walk on top of these arches and under them. There is even a cave at the end of one of them. I would rate the difficulty of... More

My son (he is 10) and I walked the trail and back with no problems. It was easy to find, the signs took us straight there but it took longer to get there than it did to hike and enjoy. There was a lot of shade so it wasn't too hot and the steep stairs had a railing for support

This is an amazing site. It's a remote and ends in a long drive down a gravel road, but worth the time if you like natural wonders. The hike there isn't long, but not for the infirm or for very young children (think 40+ ft. sheer cliffs just off the path). The path starts down to the left from the... More

The trail down to the Twin Arches is about .7 miles one way, and rated easy until you get to the steep wooden stairs that descends about 25 feet to below the bluff. The trail continues to descend and wind through very beautiful hardwoods just below the bluff line. When you first see the North Arch, you will gasp in... More

You may not find another place in the world quite like it, the inspired beauty of this spot is amazing! You have to see the arches in person to get a grasp of their scale, and also to think about how they were actually formed and how long it must have taken. It's an amazing display of the power of...

Gorgeous area. Enjoyable hike. My husband, dog and I have a great afternoon exploring the area. There are stairs. Not for someone who has difficulty walking.

As others have said, the trail is a bit steep in places but the steps make it very doable if you're in average physical condition. It's only 1.4 miles down and back so no need to carry anything but a water bottle and a camera. My wife and 3 boys and our little chihuahua had a good time, but I... More
