Beautiful hike up about 700 ft and 1.5 miles in to a lovely and very accessible arch. Got to watch rock climbers rappel down! Highly recommended!

Gorgeous views. There is some scrambling. It's a long way down, so make sure your children can follow directions and are old enough that you won't worry about them falling.
If you can only see one thing in Capitol Reef, see this! The trail is strenuous at times but not overly difficult (I wouldn't consider myself "in shape", and I did it just fine). The last part of the trail you will need to follow cairns across open rock - we missed the first cairn and got a little lost,... More
We had met a couple from Utah while at Arches and they highly recommended Cassidy Arch, so named because supposedly, Butch and his gang frequented these parts. You drive along the scenic byway in Capital Reef to get there. The hike is probably around 4 miles round trip, and I would rate it as moderately strenuous. You start out climbing... More
The trail is rough at the start especially in the heat. Its a little hard to follow at the top, just watch for the cairns. No shade on most of the trail. Good work out and beautiful arch! Bring a good amount of water.
I saw Cassidy Arch as I put together a few trails together to make a big loop (Frying Pan, Cohab Canyon, Navajo Knobs, Grand Wash and Scenic Drive). I have seen a lot of epic arches in Utah's many National Parks, but this one's setting is very different and almost eerie! You have to see this one to believe it.
This is a great walk to a superb arch . Careful navigation at the end across awkwardly angled slick rock is necessary following the little cairns. You can nearly always see the next one from the one you're next to so pay attention! There is an excellent view of the arch part way along the trail but just use it... More
Just 3-4 miles long but up some steep steps - this walk is not too difficult but you have to be reasonably fit. The arch at the end is not the only prize. The views the whole way once you reach the top are stunning. Watch out for the trees and cairns that mark the way. Fab walk - do... More
This is not a hike for the faint of heart. Although it is not a particularly long hike, it is steep and exposed. At some points you will be walking along the edge of a cliff. The best view of the bridge is about 3/4 the way up. If you walk to the bridge, you end up being on top... More
