This one will require a small hike to get to. The path is easy enough and you can take your time. One side goes in and an adjacent route will bring you back. The parking lot isn’t very big though - not when it comes to popular hours it seems. And we tried to visit for the sunrise, like almost everyone else in the park that pre-dawn morning. I think we took one of the last available spots. We rushed the hike a bit and when we got to the open rocky area we saw plenty of others roaming around or strategically placed in spots in front of the arch with their camera equipment all set up, anticipating the sunrise. If you thought you were going to get a pristine shot of the sunrise and the arch, think again. Chances are you’ll have someone else’s equipment and/or backside featured in your photo! Show up earlier than you think to get that perfect spot (and hope someone else won’t set up their tripod right in front if you! On either side of the arch are amazing views too. Don’t miss those. Scramble/walk up the rocks and look down and into the distance. If you’re afraid of heights, maybe skip the looking down part. The morning we arrived, the sunrise wasn’t as exhilarating as the images we’d seen prior to our Canyonlands visit. The weather wasn’t cool and a slight haze in the air just kept the sky a bit subdued The sun did come up and added some nice color to everything it touched though!

The trail is short and easy to access the arch. The view of the Canyon offers wonderful photo opportunities. Its a must in Island in the Sky!

Absolutely beautiful. If you do not mind getting up early check out the sunrise at Mesa Arch. It was spectacular. Get there early as it can get crowded and you want a spot in front.

The arch itself is impressive as is the view through it to the canyon and the steep drop on the other side. The hike isn't strenuous, but go early if you can since it will get crowded. You can find lots of places nearby to get views of the arch and get nice shots, a little patience to wait for different groups to clear out will give a photo without anyone in front

It’s the way to go and don’t make it seem like Canyonlands has no arches. This is definitely worth the visit and be careful on that edge!
