This is a very easy walk about 1/2 mile on a well marked trail and at the end of the walk there is the arch just waiting to be looked at. Once there wander around the area and see the arch from different points of view including looking through the arch into the canyon below. The only thing about trying... More

It's a relatively easy hike to get to and a nice arch to see. If you're up for it take a little bit of a climb up the left side of the arch and take in a great view.

This is definitely the highlight of Canyonlands National Park.

you really must take the trail to the Mesa Arch, it is well worth the hike to see the amazing views. we spent a few minutes there just taking it all in. the trail is easy to follow and well marked.

This is an amazing little arch. After visiting Arches National Park for 2 days, this is still worth the drive. The problem with this arch is that you can sit right underneath the arch but there is a 2000 foot drop off on the other side. I am not even kidding. it is straight down. Do not let your kids...

The short half-mile hike to this natural arch is definitely worth the effort. The big views behind the arch are cool to see, and the arch itself is an amazing natural work of art. Evening time will give you a nice shot of the arch from the light of the setting sun, but mornings will give you the ability to... More

After spending a few days at the Arches National Park, Canyonlands was a bit of a let down. While they did have a few spectacular canyon vistas the rest was kind of ho hum.For you Star War fans you'd be able to see where they might have gotten the ideas for the desert planet dwelling and helmet shapes in some...

I was lucky to see this lovely spot at sunset with only a handful of people. The view is stunning, and the short hike is pretty easy. Those with balance or mobility issues would have problems with the even dandy and rocky terrain. You can see from my pictures the terrain. Do not go to the park mid day crowded... More

Easy walk to a spectacular view. The arch is cool but the views you see when you walk under the arch and look down and around are amazing. Do not miss this when in Canyonlands.
