It is worth going all the way to the Morning Glory bridge. A few more rocks added in the streams would be a help to keep feet dry. Moderate hike with great scenery of the canyon.

Rename Grandstaff Trail. Beautiful trail, moderate level. Runs along a stream and crosses over several times. Will need to get your shoes wet, but not much, at least when we went. Seems to be where more locals go than tourists.

This is one of the hidden gems to see BUT ONLY IF YOU START BEFORE SUNRISE. The hike will take you to Morning Glory Arch that presents a beautiful light display during sunrise. Afterward, it's just another cool arch. Go have fun and wear shoes...More

Great morning hike! We arrived at 7.30 am and there was only one car at the trailhead. We didn't see anybody until we reached the natural bridge, where a few groups were canyoneering in. The parking lot was packed when we completed the hike. In...More

Very cool, but it is hot in the summer with limited shade. Bring lots of water, fill up whenever you can and jump in the creek.

Do this hike in the AM and there is plenty of shade, the arch at the end is worth the trek, you also follow a small stream most of the way so you can wet your feet or t shirt to help you stay cool

This is a fairly simple hike that ends at an arch. There are many spots to enjoy the water along the way. It is heavily travelled, but worth the trip.

The sign says 2.5 miles to Morning Glory Arch. My Fitbit says otherwise. It was approximately 4.5 miles. The trail keeps changing from rocky to dessert to water-filled stream. One of the best hikes of my trip. Water always nearby to soak your shirt in....More

In the summer start as early as you can. Make sure you follow the trail carefully in order NOT to get lost. This is an enjoyable place with the Rainbow Arch at the end with people coming off the rocks above on ropes. It felt...More

Never went to Utah in the summer but mid May might be ok. There is no shade but because it’s a canyon it keeps it a little cool. The downside is it’s a hike so you’ll sweat eitherway. We started at 9 in March. I say start... More

Camped at Negro Bill last June. It's still there across from the trailhead. There are a bunch of other campsites along the river with varying amenities.
