“Don't miss this arch!”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

The hike to Mesa Arch is relatively short and easy. The view when you reach the Mesa Arch is stunning so you get a big reward for that short hike. Make sure you drop by here when you visit Canyonlands.

“Easy hike and beautiful arch”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

This is a great hike to take with smaller children or if you want a short hike to finish off the day.The hike makes a small loop and is easy to access. It also happens to be a simply beautiful arch and a great photo op where you can shoot though the arch to get the surrounding canyons.

We arrived after lunch and were thrilled to find nobody else around! We were able to get some nice photos before a swarm of people came around the corner.

“Go see this arch!”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

This is an easy hike and one of the better arches to go see.

Be sure to look for Washer Woman Arch in the distance. It's easy to overlook.

Highly recommended.

“A journey to the end of the World”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Made a bee-line to get to this famous arch. Got up at 6.30, entered park at 7.30 (to beat the crowds, and beat the exceptional Utah sunshine. Walked the trail, easy and well indicated. Only to find a tag-along party haing photos shot, a guided tourguide speech, and 94 degrees of heat. Fortunately group rushed to next port of call, but heat stayed with us. Climbed up a ramp of rocks to peer into archway. Stunned to realise that one more step forward would result in a 1,000 foot fall, vertically to the canyon floor. Breathtaking views and stunning valley vistas towards the La Sal mountain range.
A must do again experience. An Island in the Sky experience never to be forgotten, by your heart or your head!

“6 stars... Easy hike :)”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Love love love this arch in Canyonlands! Easy hike, breathtaking view of the canyons! Hike is just 10 minutes, very easy! Sunset is the best time to go here especially if you're a photographer. Must see place in Canyonlands!
