  • One of the most beautiful landscapes in Island in the Sky. Washer Woman Arch and Monster Arch stand below, creating a classic Utah desert background. You're right next to the Arch, which is unusual.

  • Great place to see. Very nice view. As said in the park, bring water with you (best if you put it in ice - or with ice). I believe the best moments to visit is during the morning or evening (sunrise/sunset for top views) as the temperature is lower.
  • Not very big, but really pretty. The drop right below it is quite extreme and a few people that were wandering around seemed pretty worried about it. Really cool place to be.
  • One of the best features in the Moab area besides perhaps Delicate Arch or Tower Arch. The scenery behind is incredible!
  • We had our dog with us, so we didn't get to do a lot at Canyonlands. But we took turns seeing Mesa Arch. I went while my girlfriend stayed with our pup, then she went while I stayed with him. I loved the view and I'm so glad we went!
  • Wow! Go really early. Like 30-60 mins before sunrise. It's so worth it! Simply amazing!
