Although seen so many pics of this arch, it is still a jaw dropping moment when you see it in real. Hike is moderately difficult because of the uphill hike, some rock scrambling and slick rocks. Try and go to the bottom of the arch....More

Don't get me wrong, this is a lovely arch, but it has become way too famous. The hike in itself is moderate (on the easy side of the moderate I would say). The arch is beautiful, but too crowded. Everyone queues to take their arch...More

We hiked here to catch the sunrise. The hike to delicate arch is not a strenuous one. I found it to be very scenic and beautiful. It is very rewarding when you reach the top and see the delicate arch for the first time. There...More

It's best to do this hike late in the afternoon and if you can time it to be there just before the sunset, you will be rewarded with much better colors for your pictures! Avoid the hot summer months.

Well worth getting up early for. We visited around 7.30 am and it was already busy. It's a decent hike if you're old and the open bits are marked by cairns to keep you on the right path. The views were stunning. I'd wanted to...More

Like the rest of Arches it left us underwhelmed. Too many people - packed - so many people taking selfies all over it you can hardly take in the nature. Sure people want to see nature and that's great but do they really have to...More

Yes you can see some Arches from the car and the pull offs on the road, like Double Arch, but Delicate Arch you have to hike too. You would have to do some in depth Park research to know which famous Arches can be seen from... More
