I loved how interesting the short hike to Bowtie Arch and Carona Arch was. I usually hike 8 miles and this was 6 I believe. The ladder and the small climbs with the foothold were easily navigated. I really did not think it was scary...More

This is better than either Arches or Canyonlands and it isn't a National Park or Monument. Take plenty of water and granola bars and take your time. There are some tricky intervals including one with a metal ladder attached. On the way back be sure...More

Easy to moderate trail. About 3 miles total. Great scenery and terrific views of the area. We are older and found this a doable excursion

We did Arches and Canyonlands this weekend and our favorite hike by far war Corona arch. We basically had the arch to ourselves. The hike was fun and relatively easy even with a 7,6,3 year old. Our kids had a blast building the Little Rock...More

This is a three-mile round-trip walk. A little steep at first, but soon levels out. The final approach may be a bit uncomfortable for some. You have to hold on to a cable for one steep portion and climb a small ladder, but there is...More

The trail is exciting and includes a small ladder and cable to ascend a steep section. The arch is not as crowded as those in Arches National Park. This hike is good for families.

We went to Moab Diner and saw the poster signed by the pilot who flew his airplane through this magnificent arch. So we had to go see it ourselves! It is a challenging trail if you are older and out of shape, but we managed...More

Yes, it's paved. The trailhead parking lot is dirt, but it's right off the road which is paved. It's a really easy drive from downtown Moab or from Arches NP.

Hi My answer would be it depends. There are a couple places where you need to step up using a cable. It is a very short step up. If you regularly hike with a baby, I would think you would be ok.
