  • The hike to Mesa Arch is very easy and worth it. Because it is so easy to get to it is very crowded and parking can be tough. We actually came over to Canyonlands after exploring Arches National Park....  more »
  • This is probably the most recognizable shot of Canyonlands National Park. It's a short 10 min hike to get to the arch, from the parking lot. The only thing to take note of is that Canyonlands is a hug...  more »
  • This is the place to catch the sunrise in Canyonlands, unfortunately that means everyone else is there with you. We thought we were getting there early but still didn't get a place in front of the arc...  more »

  • 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.
  • An Arch in Canyonlands This is a relatively short hike to an arch that overlooks a cliff. The arch is not particularly big and if you've seen the arches in Arches National Park nearby, you've seen a arch like this. The hike is nice enough so if you have time, by all means do it. However, if you miss it, it's not that big of a deal.
  • One of the few arches you can walk on... at your own risk
  • 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.
  • Want to have fun in MOAB? Come here in the morning and watch photographers going ape-s#$t for a best spot to take a photo of this Iconic arch that became a household name
