This is a very large arch that you have to visit to appreciate. A good choice for a moderate hike in Moab.

A quick 1 1/2 mile hike in - a bit of up hill but the area and arches are fabulous. We got to share with only 2 others Monday afternoon.

Spent an enjoyable day hiking out to Corona arch. Great vistas, fairly even ground. Took Winston, our lab. A couple of dicey spots for animals, but, doable. Several climbers were swinging from the top of the arch. Great adventure and a beautiful day. Got back just as it started to pour. Fun for all.

This hike starts along the Colorado River just past the petroglyphs off of Potash Road. The trail climbs sharply above the road and crosses the railroad tracks and continues up the canyon. At one point the trail passes a "cairn grave yard" with dozens of cairns. After the cairns you climb a ladder and a chain rope until you have... More

We hiked up to Corona Arch at dusk and got there after sunset. We used $store glow rings placed on cairns to mark our way back down (and headlamps and flashlights) and had a fantastic nighttime adventure. As Moab is one of the darkest places on earth it is a great place to see STARS! We had kids from 4... More

The way to the arch is not very easy, not for people with kids or joints problems, as there are areas where it is very sloppy, more than 45 degrees. it is very beautiful, I can't even decide which one is better Delicate or Corona.

This hike is hard due to the heat but is relatively short for the reward. Take a hat lots of water and you will be rewarded by tranquility and not the crowds like at delicate arch. This arch is stunning and was much better than expected. Well worth the effort and easy to park up.

Great, short hike... and away from the maddening crowds of the National Parks. We canoed down the Colorado River and then went across the road to the trail head and hiked this hike. Bow Tie Arch is also visible on this hike. Well worth the visit!

We did this hike at dusk and took our flashlights. We crossed "working" train tracks, and who would think so high up the mountain and 10 miles into the canyon, that was a treat, but we also ran into Big Horned sheep, at least that was our best guess. A mama and her baby. They were so agile in comparison... More
