Delicate Arch is a moderate hike about 3 miles round trip that takes you to the (probably) most prominent icon of Southern Utah and/or Arches National Park.
There are some climbs, but nothing too difficult and easily trekked by anyone with enough determination (and water?).
As always, majestic scenery throughout.
Did I mention it’s a very crowded hike? The mountains behind the red Utah desert landscape where the arch sits may make for a photographer’s wet dream.
If you are looking to get a solo photo under the arch, be kind and wait in line. You’ll most likely notice folks standing off to the side of the arch awaiting their turn to take a photo alone (or with their own group).
Just before sundown, you’ll may see a flurry of photo snaps to capture that perfect shot. I have a one, maybe? Ah, memorrrrieeeeeees.
As you head back down on the trail, take a right off the pathway to see rock art! It’s a very short detour that loops around to showcase some historic artwork from the Utes.
