  • Loved this hike! One of the longer, "harder" hikes in arches, but was very, very doable. Beautiful scenery throughout the entire hike with lots of arches and beautiful rock. It IS harder, in that there are times you really need to climb the rock or hop to get one place. But if you're remotely fit, you'll be fine.
  • The Devil's Garden hike is the best way to see some of the most spectacular scenery at Arches. We hiked the trail in early April. If you take the entire trail, like we did, expect some pretty difficult hiking. There are very steep climbs up rocks, walking along the top of high up ridges, crawling off of rock shelves, sand in some spots, etc. I would not recommend taking small children, although I saw some people that did. Do not take this hike if heights bother you! I am an overweight middle aged woman in decent shape with tendonitis in one foot, and I managed the hike, but it was definitely hard. It was so worth it though. I'm not sure I've ever seen such spectacular scenery. We took 6 1/2 hours to hike the whole thing clockwise, mostly due to my slow pace and stopping to eat lunch along the way. My kids were age 11 and up and did great with the hike. We had some trouble staying on the trail from time to time, so I would recommend having the trail map uploaded. Other hikers were very helpful to us in finding where to go. I'm very glad we went in early April. It was the perfect time of year to enjoy Arches- not too hot, not too cold.
