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.

  • Easy hike up to the arches. Recommend doing it early morning. We did it in the afternoon and it was quite hot.

  • Corona Arch, and the adjacent Bowtie Arch, are one of the most popular hikes in the Moab area. There are good reasons for this: - It's a fairly short drive to get here (less than 30 minutes) - It's...

  • Seriously a local green not too be missed. We visited in March 2022 and it's entire family had a blast. Fun hike with many attractions along the way. Our family of five, with the kids under 16 had a fun afternoon. What not to love??? There are cool ridges to clime, bridges to cross, walls and canyons to explore, and sunset you will never forget. Bring hat, sunglasses, and good sun screen and prepare to have fun. Scary enough to keep you in your toes and relaxing enough to keep on going. We visited during sunset and tell you, that was incredible!!!! Yes, go clime on the back of the Arch! There is an entire amphitheater behind it. So cool to check it out. Yes, it is safe for adults, I would leave pets and kids by the Arch. Overall super cool times.
  • What a great hike up to Corona Arch. Its about 45 minutes each way and not a tough climb. Good shoes are necessary though as there is a lot of walking along side slopes. The view is certainly worth the effort. Got to see the train going by on our way out and then went to the campground across the road to have lunch along the river.
