This is a quick, moderate-level hike with a spectacular view of Corona Arch at the end. It's also dog-friendly, unlike a lot of other local hiking spots, and that's a plus for us. There are a couple tricky spots where a ladder and pulleys assist the climb but they're not too difficult. I highly recommend.

This hike is about the same distance and difficulty as Delicate Arch but with smaller crowds. The arch is beautiful and there is a bonus arch nearby but the highlight for me is playing with the echos that bounce off the surrounding canyon walls. This would probably be annoying to some of the folks that come here to hike but... More

When I was at Corona Arch there were only 2 others there. It was nice and quiet and I took my dog. There are a couple of spots with chains to hold on to but I and my dog both did fine

I love this hike. There's some exposure and tricky spots. I wouldn't recommend this if you have mobility issues. There's some variable terrain (steep, off camber, exposure, rock steps) that could cause difficulty. The views are amazing. And you can bring your dog!! yay!

We tried this arch outside of the National Parks recently. The trailhead is situated off of very scenic UT279, or the 'Potash' road. Not very accessible and at the end of a mile and a half long moderate hike. Very exposed in the heat off the summer. And the slickrock scambles, ladder, and cables will not make it suitable for...

February was the perfect time to do this hike. Only took 45 minutes each way at most and it was not to crowded. Weather was perfect. The arch was a beauty to behold and just massive!

Make a point to try this hike during the off season. The parking gets tight during tourist season and it's better for pictures during off season, or get up there early in the morning. The beginning of the hike is probably the most difficult part, but there are parts where you have to wait your turn and use a hand... More

It took us about a half hour to get to the arch, the hike isn't too bad, you do have to climb up a section, but there are ladders and chains to hold. Bowtie arch is also right there. We packed a lunch and ate it right under the arch. May was a perfect time to visit.

This was a little of a challenging hike due to the angel of the rocks that we had to walk across, but on a dry day it is manageable and well worth the hike.

I've hiked to Corona Arch twice now and there was a big difference between the two experiences. First off, the things that were the same: the hike is about 1.5 miles in each direction. It is up a crayon outside of town (if you are leaving Moab heading north, it is the 2nd left turn after crossing the river). Most... More
