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 Run: The Delicate Arch Trail is 1.5 miles each way.
