Take an easy hike right off the highway to Wilson's Arch. You can literally stand in the arch and use it as a frame for some outstanding photos! The best forever souvenir for your memory of a great experience!

You can scramble all the way up or part way to get the best picture. It's just by the road so an easy stop

You can hike up to it but have someone in your party frame you inside the arch. You may have to compete with a lot of other tourists who have the same idea. It is not a strenuous hike but allow a leisurely half hour...More

We happened to come across the arch on the way south from Moab and thought that the arch was amazing. Very large and you can walk right up to it from the roadside. No hassle and no crowds. Loved it!

Saw this Arch 9 years ago and was impressed at the time, saw it again on this trip and equally impressed. It's there on the roadside with ample parking space even for a 31' RV. Bit of a scramble to get to the top of...More

Looks like you have the info you need. Enjoy. It is so convenient that it's worth the stop and short (but a bit steep) hike to reach the arch.

Agree with CDGT Trips above. It's not a far walk but potential hazards do exist especially for the elderly.
