We were carrying a baby and hiking in the afternoon up a westward facing trail, so it was a bit tough for us. We stopped at the point we could see the arch but skipped the last cable/wooden ladder setup. It probably would be fine for most capable hikers. Take water and enjoy the view; it is a beautiful arch. The instructions at the parking lot are a little vague. Hike up the trail to the railroad tracks. Go directly across the tracks and through the walk-thru gate in the barbed wire fence. Follow the marked trail.

It's worth the hike to this amazing arch. It's huge! We were able to watch a few people swing, which almost made me hurl out of fear, just watching! After our hot hike down, we jumped in the Colorado River, which is just across the street from the parking lot. Sand bar made an awesome beach. Great activity!

The hike to Corona arch really pays off. The hike itself is pretty easy, and the scenery is off the charts cool. Bowtie arch is right next to Corona, and provides at least a little shade throughout the day, in addition to the shade from Corona itself.

If you are an adventurous soul, the rappel from Corona is a walk up for experienced climbers, and is even doable fro beginners with an experienced guide (go find someone in Moab and ask about it).

We did not bring our ropes when we went, but we did watch a set of guides set up a series of ropes that had the tourists hooked in for the entire walk up. The guides then lowered the tourists for the 35m/115ft drop. It was quite a photo op.

Fun easy hike, but with all desert hikes - take water! My two daughters, my wife and I took a gallon for our 7am to 11 am trip, and it was 'cool' weather (read: sunny and about 35C/96F).

To get to Corona Arch you have to cross a railroad track, hike a couple of steep areas including two with cable railing to hold onto, and a pipe ladder. If you are lucky you might see some people being lowered by rope from the arch. Apparently you can free air rappel from the top of the arch, but you'd better have long ropes and an experienced guide along with you to be on the safe side. It's a beautiful area with views of Bowtie and lots of other cool caves.
