Corona Arch, Moab

4.9
#4 of 29 in Parks in Moab
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.

  • Amazing arch and a fairly easy short hike to get there. I went in the winter and it was not too crowded. The views were amazing and you can even see some other smaller arches with small detours. Very impressive and pictures don't do it justice. If you go behind it, you can actually climb up the backside and get on top. Very cool area!
  • Get there early to avoid the crowds. Beautiful little hike. A couple of steep inclines (especially at the beginning before the railroad crossing). There is one section with ropes and another with a 6 ft ladder, but overall it's a very accessible hike.
