A steep hike to an arch that was way bigger than I expected

I did not read much about the hike to Delicate Arch, before hitting the trail, and was surprised it was as difficult as it was. You walk up a somewhat steep bald rock face for... read more

I did not read much about the hike to Delicate Arch, before hitting the trail, and was surprised it was as difficult as it was. You walk up a somewhat steep bald rock face for the first part of the hike. I had to stop for a break once or twice, but it wasn't too bad. The rest of the... More

the setting can't be beat. the arch itself is spectacular and the setting in which you view it matches.

Though there are about 2000 arches in the Arches National park, Delicate Arch was definitely the highlight for us. It is a 3 miles roundtrip moderate hike which was pretty crowded even in March. It is easy to get lost if you are hiking in the dark (after sunset or before sunrise) so be careful. The arch is not visible... More

We arrived in the afternoon and I was concerned about getting to the arch but we were able to easily get there. The park is not on a loop so no worries about missing a turn. Also, there is the Delicate Arch viewpoint and the Delicate Arch trail to the arch itself. I was worried that I would end up... More

If you are even near Southeastern Utah and do not got to Delicate Arch, you have missed a major experience!

Did the Mighty five drive from CA and ended up in Moab. The arches was one of my favorites. With 3 kids and a 2 year old as youngest, we were at a crossroads of which arch to hike. We hiked many small trails and saw many arches but I did not want to miss the opportunity to do a... More

As it was ~30 minutes before sunset, we debated whether to do the hike up to the arch or to go to the distance viewing site that you can drive to. We decided to quickly do the hike and can easily say it was one of the best decisions we've made and inspired us to always go the extra mile... More

Moderate hike, tough for a small section, but well worth it once you get to the arch. We got here early before it got really crowded and it started raining later in the afternoon.

This arch is great because it combines the elements of a good somewhat challenging hike, with the payoff of one of the most unique arches in the park. Even though it's about 3 miles round trip up some decent elevation and around some steep ledges, all perfectly safe and an awesome experience. But even with all of that this place... More

we visited in 2015 on a warm march day during spring break. we made it a day trip from park city, utah.(dry was not too bad) the hike up wasn't too bad except for the last 50 yards or so. the trail narrows to a 'cliff like trail' and the width is about 5-7ft across. those that are scared of...
