Hiked up to delicate arch with my wife. It was hot...100 plus....which made the short hike more challenging. Watched the sunset. Neat place to see...probably won't go back though.

It had snowed the day before and going up and down the rocks were very icy and some were definitely not prepared. Wear proper shoes! Well worth it to get to the end!

You need to hike about 30 minutes to get up to the arch from the parking lot. It is a little uphill too. If you don't want to do the hike you can also see the arch up in the distance right from the parking...More

Don't miss this on your trip to Moab and the surrounding area. It is well worth the time to explore this natural bridge.

Lots of uphill going out to the arch but it's worth every step! The hike is just beautiful...so much to look at. Be sure to take lots of water. Even in late November the temperature can be warm.

There is only one entrance on the north end of Moab. When we were there, they were having construction on the road going into the Park.

You could easily have the cermony in the basin beneath Delicate Arch. Very few people are there and it would be like you were on your own. You could get some cool photos with Delicate Arch above you. Or...you could also... More
