Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wolfe Ranch was a rustic delight! The historic cabin offers a peek into the past. The short hike was scenic, with beautiful views of the canyon. It's a peaceful spot to soak in some history and nature.

This is an interesting stop on the Delicate Arch Trail, you walk right past this historical structure. If you ever wondered what it was like to live in a place like Arches National Park before it became a federal property, you have an actual historic structure to view. Basically today's Delicate Arch parking lot is the former ranch of the Wolfe family along the Salt Wash Creek. The original log house and corral as still standing. In the dry weather, the logs and construction material have survived well for you to see how this place functioned. It had to be challenging knowing both how hot and cold it gets here and with so little water. Again, this is not something you make a trip to see but since you are here for Delicate Arch, take the time to see it.

Quick stop off the main trail to Delicate Arch ... Also, there are some petroglyphs nearby ... If you have the time to branch off on your way to Delicate Arch, go ahead

This small cabin and mud house give you a feel for how the family lived. You are not able to enter the buildings, but can see in them. We learned some interesting info about the family from the Gypsy app, otherwise this stop may have been a head scratcher. It shares parking with the Delicate Arch hike to the arch, so the lot is busy. It is also the stop to see the petroglyphs.

Nothing special to spend any time. Compared to the beauty around this lone wooden house , albeit from the mid 1800s is not that interesting. It is near the Wolfe trailhead to the Delicate Arch.

Quick stop on the hike to Delicate Arch. Good history provided for this abode and of it's owner (John Wesley Wolfe). Nice photo spot on the waterway near the house.

An easy quick stop on your hike either going out to Delicate Arch or back from it. I'd recommend doing it on the way back.

If you look around you can imagine what it would look like back in the day.

This was a nice stop in Arches National Park. There were a few trails in the area but it was January so the hiking was icy and dangerous.

While trying to comprehend the eons it took for the Arches to develop, take 10 minutes to explore the work of an old soldier and his children in creating a home in this harsh environment. Another 5 minutes will get you to some petroglyphs of his neighbors.

Stop here and visualize what life was like in this place over 100 years ago. Look at the little cabin and realize this is the “ new and improved” version that actually has a wood floor. It must have been a little oasis in an otherwise stark landscape. Easy to see why the family only lived here ten years or so.
