One of the best arches in the park in my opinion, the trail hike there is pretty amazing seeing all the red rock formations.

This trail is very steep but not too long. Beautiful at sunset! I stayed a few hours there and took hundreds of photos. The mountains to the north east make a perfect backdrop on a clear evening. I hiked this in the evening after hiking all day and the trail was very tiring but rewarding.

The very iconic image of Arches National Park is a moderately difficult hike from the Wolfe Ranch parking lot. It's about 15 mins drive from the park entrance, and took me (solo) 45 minutes to hike to. I went at sunset, as my goal was to photograph the Arch. Well, as you can imagine, along with 8-10 other photographers jockeying... More

Este parque es fascinante, todo es muy bonito, pero nada se compara con el "Delicate Arch". Es impresionante como se mantiene en pie esta escultura finamente tallada por la erosion.

We hiked there on a cold beautiful day around 23F in December. The hike was a little far climbing up about 1.5 mile one way but it's worth it. I recommend to use hiking sticks if you are comfortable with them. I can't imagine doing this in the Summer which would be too hot for the hike.

We hiked the fairly leisurely hike up to Delicate Arch and had a little picnic while waiting for the sun to set. There were a number of families and hiking groups that added to the wonderful atmosphere. The sunset was wonderful, and the hike back was well illuminated by the moon and cell phone flashlights. If you do go up... More

It is a bit of an energetic walk up to the viewing point and even more so to go to this marvel of nature. The sun was up ,the sky completely blue and the temperature just below freezing,this is the perfect climate to go up and see this arch.

Involves a bit more walking but worth the effort. Because it's on its own it appears to be bigger than it is.

Had to visit this arch as my son was here last year. It was well worth the climb to get to it and as it was November not that busy so got some good pics.

The hike is really quite mild! Worth it to see delicate arch up close! It was very beautiful, but make sure you bring water!
