Easy access!

This arch is right of the highway and can be seen from both sides of the road a few miles south of Moab.

There is plenty of space to pull off the highway and view this arch. Easy place to take photos. Not sure if you're allowed to hike up or not.

Of ALL the arches, this one is my favorite, even compared to the one's within ARCHES NATIONAL PARK. It is very accessible, and admission is FREE. It's a gorgeous arch, with best photo ops in the afternoon. Right along side the highway, and only 20 miles south of Moab, Utah. Don't miss this arch !

Neat road side arch! It is cool to see this arch right from the highway but Arches N.P. is still a must see!

We saw this arch while driving by on the highway. It was easy to pull off on the side of the road for photos. We thought it was as good as the arches in the national park. Of course, Arches NP has lots of other things to see so this is not a substitute but it's still worth a stop... More

This is a relative review of course. If this arch were in my backyard, I'd be thrilled. If you've been to Arches NP, there are better ones. What's good about Wilson's is that it's just there by the side of the road, and huge. You can get out and get closer (we didn't). On the way from Moab to Canyonlands... More

We were surprised to come upon this arch on our way to Canyonlands from Moab, UT. If you don't want to walk up to it you can just pull over on the shoulder and enjoy the view.

First off it is free. Just sits off the side of 191 waiting for you. It is a single arch with a sign telling the history behind it. Only takes a few minutes to walk completely up to the arch. Worth the stop.

It is super easy to acces this arch, right off the highway. You can easily walk up to it and get a great view looking up through the arch to the sky. When we have driven by there have been a few people there but never too busy as you don't need to stop for long. Definitely work pulling over... More

Wilson Arch is a sandstone formation on the east side of US191 midway between Moab (25 miles) and Monticello (28 miles). There are pull-offs on both sides of the highway so you can stop safely to admire and it and take some photos. You can see it very well right from the road, but there is a short, moderately steep...
