Primitive loop: we started it around 430pm which was a big mistake. This did not allow us time for getting lost at all...cairns were difficult to find in some areas, esp from double O working counter clockwise. Best advise: WEAR PROPER SHOES for gripping rocks,...More

This trailhead leads to so many different arches in the NP in different distances. Decide based on your physical condition how far you should go. One of the highlight in the whole trip in south west US.

The beginning of the trailhead is easily accessible to get to Landscape Arch but afterwards involves climbing up a steep rock which is quite smooth / has little grip and also quite narrow. This made me feel slightly nervous and I had to slide back...More

This hike was truly “as good as it gets”! My most important advice would be the earlier the better. We got to the park before 7 but the trailhead was about a half hour drive in so we started about 7:30. Ideally, I’d recommend starting...More

My wife, teenager and I just traveled to Arches National Park. We hiked the entire trail including the primitive loop. First of all, you must get an early start, the heat really begins to beat down on you later in the day. This trail can...More
