  • My family hiked the Natural Arch Loop Trail (#510). My kids are 5 and 7 and they both loved it. We counted over 300 stairs altogether and had to take some extra water breaks toward the end. There...

  • Easy walk to the overlook of the arch. The terrain to the arch is rugged, with stairs and hills, though the distance is not an issue. Plenty of photo opportunities and simply gorgeous.

  • This is a beautiful spot. The overlook is wheelchair/stroller accessible. The arch trail however has steps and is not accessible. It is an easy trail that is about a mile and a half. If my 3 year old can do it, most people should be able to... The bathrooms are another story, I guess you could say "well at least there are bathrooms"... But all in all, it was worth the trip.
  • Super easy hike to a handicapped overlook and a Very easy hike that leads to the under side of the arch but with lots of stairs down, so back up is pretty steep. Worth it to look up at its underside although it's a scramble to move around below it. No trail to the top which is probably for the best. Parking is good with a swing set and navy places to picnic/camp/grill. The only toilets are pit toilets though.
