Corona Arch, Moab
(4.9/5 based on 600+ 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.

  • Beautiful Ark, before hiking is just as beautiful, and especially there is no great brief world tour to do

  • 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
