This is a moderate out and back trail to Delicate Arch, perhaps the most famous attraction in Arches National Park, which also serves as the background image of Utah license plates. The first section of the trail follows cairns on a wide slope of slickrock. Eventually, it follows a moderately wide ledge until it ends in a natural amphitheater aside the arch itself.

If using the map options through GAIA, the NPS Visitor map is not very accurate on the trail markings. National Map (USGS), Landscape (Maps), NatGeo Trails Illustrated, USGS Topo (CalTopo) and GAIA Topo show the correct trails as they are now.
The trailhead is well marked, but it and the trail may be extremely crowded during peak times and seasons.
