Delicate Arch Trail
This moderately strenuous trail begins near the Wolfe Ranch
cabin, crosses a bridge over Salt Wash, and continues up the
long stretch of open slickrock to Delicate Arch. The trail also
winds through an area full of chert - a hard, shiny rock
used by Native Americans for tools and weapons - and
around a short ledge, hugging a steep cliff.
Length: 1.5 miles (2.4 km) one way.
Elevation Change: 480 feet (146 meters) -
all uphill. Return - all downhill.
Best Time of Day: Late afternoon is best
for photographing the arch; mornings are
