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.

The hike is easy and short. The arch is beautiful. When there are many people you have to wait a while to get a picture without any people, but it's possible (in Arches NP it's impossible in the summer months).

The hike to Mesa Arch only took us 10 to 15 minutes. The view was incredible. The arch is on the edge of the canyon and frames a great view of the canyon.

What is there to say that hasn't been said. It is a short walk from the car and it is worth every step, just stunning. The arch is great, not as spectacular as Delicate or huge as Landscape in nearby Arches but what you can see from and through it is breathtaking. Canyonlands is wonderful.

A short, easy hike to a fantastic arch and view. The arch frames the gorgeous Canyonlands beyond. We loved Canyonlands and I can't recommend it highly enough.

Yes, it can be busy but that's for a good reason! It's a beautiful spot and only a short walk from the parking lot. We were there just before sunset and the light was awesome! So was the view. A must do/see in Canyonlands NP Island in the Sky district!

Mesa Arch is one of the first place which you will see as you enter into canyonlands NP. It is beautiful and trust me better than Arches national park in terms of views it offers. Arches definitely offer different kinds of structure however this place is where i would sit for hours and just enjoy the view. Must Visit!!

This stunning view is easily accessible, with about a 1/4 mile hike each way. The picture-perfect arch, with the canyons expanding for miles in the background, is simply not like anything I've ever seen before!

Easy to access, walk to see this big, colourful and pretty arch; and look through it, to contemplate the big lanscape below. Stay and relax there for a while. Then, walk arond, for different views of the area.
