This was my fourth trip to Arches National Park, but my first time hiking to all of the arches. The almost 2 mile hike to "Delicate Arch" was too much for these old legs to take. BUT, you can hike about half that amount and still view this beautiful site. It also helps to have a telephoto lens on your... More

Heed the warnings! Be prepared!!! Take LOTS of water, a hat, hiking stick. Hike to this arch in the early morning or evening, NOT midday. I believe the guides called this a moderate hike, but was much more strenuous than described. 1.5 miles uphill, but worth the spectacular sight of the arch once you reach it.

Did this hike mid-July when temps outside were pushing 100. This is roughly 1.5 miles uphill, and the rock gets VERY hot. They advise you to carry lots of water, and this is not an exaggeration. I did this mid-day, which was when it fit our schedule, but I would strongly suggest early morning while sun is low in the... More

You can not miss this when in the area, its something that you just can't find anywhere else in the world. Massive standalone arch, one of the most amazing things I've ever seen. Its not a symbol of Utah for no reason, Hike there wasn't too bad either. It was 37 degrees Celsius but its 5km return so nothing impossible.... More

Out of all the places to see in Arches, Delicate Arch was on the top of the list And I'm so glad we got to see it. Start early in the day to avoid large crowds. We went early, around 9, but there was still a good crowd. The road to the viewing area was closed due to flooding, so... More

This was the highlight of our trip. It's a hike but well worth it. BRING water! At least 1 bottle per person.

This hiking trail is rated 'Difficult'. The distance is 3 miles roundtrip. The way up to the Arch is pretty steep- need good hiking shoes. The view during sunset is breathtaking! Along the way up you will see the gorgeous view of different rock formations. I personally love this hiking trail a lot. Its a fun trail!

This is a fairly strenuous hike, but with a huge payoff! Pictures just don't do justice to this beautiful work of nature. I'm prone to slips and falls and was pleasantly surprised that the rocks you climb are not slippery at all. It took us about an hour and a half, which included waiting our turn to get our picture...

You will need to go to Arches National Park to see it. It's a very popular hike. Lots of people were hiking to it at the same time we were. Which made for a challenge to get a picture of the arch by itself. I don't think that happened. The hike has it's challenges. For instance climbing up the long... More

This is one of America's great attractions. You can not visit the area and see Delicate Arch. Its not that difficult to get to. MUST SEE.
