This excellent hike takes you up a steep trail to Delicate Arch, Moab’s most famous arch. This excellent 1.5-mile trail, one of Moab’s best hikes, ends at Delicate Arch, an iconic Utah landmark that symbolizes the red-rock canyon country. You may have seen it on postage stamps or Utah license plates, but nothing is like seeing it up close and in person. This excellent 1.5-mile trail, one of Moab’s best hikes, ends at Delicate Arch, an iconic Utah landmark that symbolizes the red-rock canyon country. You may have seen it on postage stamps or Utah license plates, but nothing is like seeing it up close and in person. This popular trail is easy to follow, with some sections marked with cairns, and is moderate in difficulty. The uphill trail gains 530 feet, mostly up a sloping slickrock slab with a gradual grade.
