This was the main hike of the day and well worth the effort. We headed in and skipped the side hike to Tunnel Arch & Pine Tree Arch. We would hit them on the hike out. Landscape Arch came into view and we started our lasso loop opting for a counter clockwise loop.

The going is fairly easy as you follow a defined trail that drops down and makes a loop. We detoured over to Private Arch and took a short break. From there we continued and detoured over to Dark Angel. Both are cool geological features worth exploring. From the trail junction near Double O Arch we started our return. Along the way we stopped to check out Navajo Arch, which was my favorite, and Partition Arch. We continued our return and took the side trip to Pine Tree Arch & Tunnel Arch. We arrived back to the TH around mid-afternoon.

This is an excellent loop that has a handful of amazing arches and wonderful scenery. The loop is great but not necessary to see the best arches like Navajo & Double O. After this hike we drove around the rest of the park seeing Skyline Arch & Double Arch. Great trip to Arches!
