For our October episode of Troy’s Terrific Trails, Troy and his brothers Jake and Colby, traveled to Moab, Utah to see some arches.
They went to see one of the most tourist-attracted arch in Utah, and hiked the Delicate Arch Trail.
You can find this trail in Arches National Park, and be warned you do have to pay to get in. However, the views and seeing the iconic arch up close is totally worth it. You can also say that you’ve seen the natural arch that is on all those Utah license plates.
The hike is about three miles round trip and should take you only a couple hours to complete, depending on how many pictures you take along the way.
The trail is rated as moderate, with only 680 total feet of climbing, so it’s a perfect hike for the entire family.
If you are leaving from Grand Junction, it will take you approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes to get to the trailhead.
There is a large parking lot right next to the trailhead, and it shouldn’t be a problem to get a spot no matter how crowded the trail is that day.
