Royal Arch Trail

Good hike, be prepared for tourist or just high volumes of people. The stairway is the hardest part hands down, it demands respect. Trail condition is good, well marked. The Arch itself is pretty awesome, bigger than expected.

Took the easiest trail - kids made it to the top before us. Rain/hail got us off the mountain. Great day

Beautiful location and setting just off the Continental Divide. Hiked in early Sept. Great location, I was all along. Not many level good spots to pitch a tent. Lots of low brush around the lake making it hard to navigate around the lake. Some maps or GPS show a low trail to the Lake. This does not exist, follow the high trail around the upper rim of the CT.

Nice easy hike to the falls. Suggest you continue past and continue up the valley to the meadows. Beautiful views of the mountains in the distance and you have a chance to encounter a moose or two.

Colorado River Trail

Fairly easy trail that you can take out to Shipler's cabins (2.3 miles) or to Lulu city (3.7 miles) and then back. If you are adventurous you can continue past Lulu City and make it into a loop trail which I'm guessing would be about 10 miles. I suggest you get a trail map from the Kawuneeche Visitor Center. My wife and hiked this trail in the late afternoon and saw a mule deer and a young male elk (not sure what they are called). It was a nice hike along the Colorado River.

Amazing hike with just enough climbing and scrambling to make it very fun! Still have enough energy afterwards to tour the cliff dwellings.
