Great hike, bring plenty of water, seriously

We did this hike in August. Took the normal way in, that was kind of busy. We took the alternative way back. That was quiet. Eventhough we started early it got very hot. We had 3... read more

We did this hike in August. Took the normal way in, that was kind of busy. We took the alternative way back. That was quiet. Eventhough we started early it got very hot. We had 3 liters of water with us. we needed every drop of it. The trail does require some climbing and walking over bare rocks but when... More

We concluded our tour of Arches here. Great place to stop for lunch and/or to check out Landscape Arch.

Probably unadvisedly we set off to 'see' how difficult this loop would be and having been lulled into a false sense of security on the flat sandy approach decided to 'give it a go'. I am a fairly unfit 48 year old and had I known how scary the route would be, I wouldn't have done it... HOWEVER...I'm very, very... More

We began early and managed to beat the crowds. We had the trail for ourselves alone. We did the devil's garden with the primitive trail. We got amazing view and lots of fun on the trail.

This is probably one of the best hikes in the park - up there with Fiery Furnace. Indeed, I would say this is a fairly good taste of what the Fiery Furnace hike is like so if you didn't manage to secure a spot on the FF hike, then definitely do this one. I did the full loop and did... More

Carry lots of water with you and we used a golf umbrella for shade. The umbrella may have looked silly but we were spared the intense sun. The geological fins create a gorgeous shady walk for about 100 yards. The trail continues to Landscape Arch. If you go early you will miss the crowds. Great spot.

Don't plan on going far in the summer with a hydration pack if you plan to stay long in the area. Many things in the area are within 1/2 mile of the road. Try them at first and watch for falls. Please leave no trash and we do not want to see you carving on the rocks! Take nothing and... More

Well worth the time and effort, but listen to the advice!! Lots of water, sunscreen and loose fitting clothing. Get walking before 8am and be back before noon. It is not the heat that is the problem but the position of the sun. When it is lower it affords more shade at ground level. They're is no escape from it... More

Devils Garden trailhead takes you to tree and tunnel arches. They are just a short hike from the main trailhead and worth the effort

Of course you go to Arches National Park to see arches and the Devil's Garden is the place to see a bunch. We had stayed overnight at the Devil's Garden Campground which is about a 2 min car ride to the trailhead or maybe a 10 min walk. We had packed up our campsite and then headed over to the... More
