Description

The big highlight of everyone's trip to Arches! Did we mention "everyone"?!? It really is spectacular, but try to come early in the morning (best) or in the evening. It's a short hike, so most people can enjoy the sunset and still hike out before dark.

Short Hike: The Delicate Arch Trail is 1.5 miles each way.

Family Friendly: Fun rock scrambles and a short hike make this great for a family outing.

Gem Type: Natural Arch

Solid climb for a mile and a half but the view of the arch is so rewarding.
