Corona Arch, Moab

(4.9/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Corona Arch on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Moab holiday planner.

  • This hike is on BLM land so dogs are allowed (with a leash please, due to the presence of desert big horn). You won't see the arch at first. There is a bit of rock scrambling up a cable (not just the ...  more »

  • We started this hike at 6.30 AM to avoid extreme heat in the summer. So there were not many people in the trail, and it was agreable to hike up at this time of day. At one point, you cross a railroad....  more »

  • One of my most amazing hikes I've taken! It's just something about being there when the sun rises and no one else is around.
  • What a great hike! Beautiful and a bit challenging. Will definitely get the heart going.
  • Beautiful views! The hike was about 5 miles round trip, though there's 1 spot that was super scary and my boyfriend went on. I only did 2 miles. You get some great views, it is not nearly as crowded as the NP, it is free and you see 3 arches! The Utah state website suggested it and it was worth it!
  • Out of this world and truly spectacular place, you have to see it with your own eyes to truly appreciate the full granger of Corona Arch.
  • Easy hike, fun place to be less crowded than delicate arch
