Corona Arch, Moab

#4 of 28 in Parks in Moab
Geologic Formation · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Noteworthy Corona Arch, a natural sandstone formation, is the main attraction of the Corona Arch Trail. Along the 2.4 km (1.5 mi) trail, you'll pass Bowtie Arch and Goldbar Arch before reaching the culmination of the trail at Corona Arch. Here you can admire and photograph the towering red formation, formed by countless years of erosion, and a colorful canyon. Though much of the hike is fairly easy, you will have to ascend a ladder and use a safety cable in one area. Wear sun protection, as there is very little shade along the way, or consider an early morning or early evening hike to the arch.

  • Fantastic and gigantic arch well worth the hike to see this magnificent work of nature As Breathtaking as the hike. The hike was fun as far as hikes go. A few steep parts but nothing to bad. Can get hit if you go in the summer or midday plan accordingly
  • Great 1.5h hike total if slower. Beautiful views of an awesome arch. As nice or nicer than the ones in arches. You get right up to it and can sit under it. Amazing. Very short doable climb with metal wire rope and a ladder but that's it.
