The twin arches are amazing and accessible via a fairly short hike. That said, there are several sets of long, steep stairs you have to endure, but it is well worth it.

We did the upper loop only since we have 2 young kids. What a fun and exciting hike. It was a bit more strenuous than we were expecting, but nothing that we couldn't handle. We were invigorated after. Saw a rattlesnake on the trail. That...More

The loop trail is short and easy but we got to see one of the best preserved arches. The arches are big and impressive. It's also fun to explore the nooks and crannies around the bases of the arches. We encountered 2 black bears on...More

As a couple, this was a terrific experience! I personally would be afraid to take kids on top of the arch, which has no guard rails, though. It was worth the hike!

What a great hiking experience! I was somewhat prepared for the massive Arches (although I still found them awe inspiring), but I wasn't prepared for the huge bluffs leading up to the Arches. Great photo opportunities for those who are into wildlife/wildflower/geological feature photography. It...More

The trail to the Twin Arches is a great hike. Not too strenuous but enough to not be boring. The arches are amazing to see and walk through and climb the stairs to see the views from above.

Did this hike one morning in October. There are two ways to get there, we did one on the way there, and the other on the return. Very scenic! There are stairs, but you can take your time climbing. Most of the trail is fairly...More
