It took us five years, but we finally got around to making the most-famous trail in Utah into a Hike of the Week.
In fairness to us, a lot of you have already href="http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/outdoors/50642911-117/park-arch-arches-delicate.html.csp" target="_blank">hiked to Delicate Arch. But we figured you might want to reminisce or there are a few folks out there that visited Arches National Park without straying far from the car.
The hike's vital statistics are below. Follow the link href="http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/outdoors/50642911-117/park-arch-arches-delicate.html.csp" target="_blank">here to learn even more.
Also, I mapped this trail in October while hiking with an old friend. Read about that by clicking href="http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/blogs/hiking/50425151-150/arch-delicate-arches-california.html.csp" target="_blank">here.
