Big South Fork

Great views! Must do hike. There is a parking lot just .7 miles from the arches. I enjoyed this with 6 friends on a 4 day hike through Big South Fork.

Our group made the whole loop, enjoyed the scenery, stopped by Charit Creek, marveled at the arches. Be advised that there are numerous steep stairs - not suitable for all people or pets. Although it was March, our hike was "frozen" and we had to be quite cautious of ice and large falling icicles that often fell from far above... More

Able to hike back in because the trails are well-kept and stairs help along the way. I loved it all.

This was a nice hike! It can be challenging at some points (especially if you're asthmatic like my dear brother in law). It's very short, but the view is amazing from the top of the arches. I don't recommend small children or large dogs for this trail due to the steep ladder like stairs throughout. It was very clean and... More

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
