Fabulous hike. I really enjoyed it in the Winter. I did a Google Earth trail while I was here so if you want to check it out virtual like you can see it on my blog www.shaunasadventures.com or in Google Earth. I was grateful for whoever painted the green rectangles on the trail to Mark the path. Brilliant! Made it super easy to follow the trail. Definitely had to watch for ice. Normally I would put my crampons/Spikes on if a trail has ice, but it had more areas with no bare rock that it was easier to detour around the ice. Arches were magnificent! Loved it!

Okay, it is windy. But it is an easy trail with views for days. Really amazing - esp. at sunset!

AMAZING! This is much more fun and spectacular than Delicate arch. Quiet trail, awesome views, and the arch is jaw dropping. Exploring around the arch makes your feel like a little kid! DO THIS HIKE! Again, MUCH better, in my opinion, than Delicate Arch.

Beautiful hike. Got very hot even at 9 am in July. But was well worth it.

Right off the main road, making it a very busy place. Still a great and easy landmark to visit!

This trail is wonderful. It’s a little challenging with some mildly steep rock to traverse before you get to a more flat path, but this just adds to the experience in my opinion. Both arches are pristine and Corona Arch is one of my favorite hikes I’ve done so far in Moab, if you’re looking for a place to go during the shutdown this is your hike! It took my group about two hours to complete this with plenty of stops for photos and sitting to enjoy the winter sun - this is definitely not crowded in the winter!

A great hike to see some arches during the shutdown

Great hike with lots to see - 2 Arches and a cool side canyon
Best views of Corona Arch were on the far side looking back
Hike had a short ladder and 2 cables to assist hikers over steeper sections of slick rock
Great for all ages

amazing!!! the views were unreal, the arches are impressive and breathtaking, and the hike was very fun.

not a super challenging hike- even in the snow and slush. crampons helped big time; those rocks are so slippery. slight up hill climb to get to the challenging parts with the ladder and metal rope, then pretty flat till you get to the arches.

maybe this trail is more dog friendly without snow but i’m still not sure how my lab managed to get up past the ladder area and the first initial climb with the metal rope. pretty terrifying to see him climb up and down, but he managed. wouldn’t have tried that had we known just how steep it was!

if you have a truly strong, adventurous, fit dog, or a dog you can carry, go ahead. otherwise, you’ll be turning back before seeing anything really cool.

Magnificent views, was crowded when we went in Jan, but that might have been caused from the closure of Arches due to the Gov shutdown. Easyish hike, first part's the hardest, the. cruise till u see the arch. It has a ladder and a couple of steel cable guided spots to get under the arch.

Very pretty hike. Did it a few days ago and it was snowy and slippery!!! Have traction and watch footing past the first cable and after the cable ladder. Looks a little sketchy there in the ice and cold. Beautiful arches!

This was an easy hike with a beautiful arch at the end. There was one small part that was very steep and we needed to hold onto the cable and one part with a short ladder.
We liked this better than Arches National Park!

We did this wonderful hike on a cold (25-38 degrees) but sunny day. It was all other hikers say— interesting and not too hard with cables and a ladder. Some other hikers we ran into thought it was challenging but worth it. We were very glad to have micro spikes. Others around us with boots or tennis shoes had a very hard time on the slippery rock.
The arch is beautiful; one resident said it was his favorite, even compared to the ones in Arches National Park. Go!

This trail is incredibly scenic the entire way. Part of the trail was more difficult with foot-holes and a rope and steep in some areas. Overall not a difficult route however! Did not take a long time to hike in which was nice.

I was wanting to go to Arches and hike up to delicate arch, but thanks to the government shutdown, I had to change my plans. Thankfully I found this trail that isn’t federally owned. It did not disappoint at all. Magnificent views. The arch was glorious!!

Great views, a few difficult spots for this Florida girl, definitely worth your time!

WOW! I’ve been to Arches/Moab many times but never knew about Corona. Perfect for a short dog-hike. Our old b’aussie needed to be carried up the section with the footholds and the cable but our young golden scrambled on his own. At the ladder they just took the long way round. We didn’t however even try to get on top of the arch. Too skiddy for the pups. Thank you AllTrails!! We wouldn’t have found this without you.

Loved this easy hike. We have a 75 pound husky and he did fine up the steep section right before the ladder. Stay to the left of the ladder with your dog and you can continue on to the arch. The scenery is amazing.

Beautiful view at the end, well marked trail.

Easy hike with spectacular pay off. Bowtie Arch is impressive, but Corona Arch is amazing! It was a bit busy at the arch, but not crowded.

For an added bonus, visit Pinto Arch as well. It isn't visible from the trail, nor is there any actual trail or trail marker, but it's on AllTrails map. Just be sure to stay on the sandy washes or on the sandstone to avoid disrupting the fragile cryptobiotic soils.

Not many trails outside Arches NP that you can see three arches on one trail.

my dogs loved this trail

Loved the hike, easy, with great views. It was a bit difficult at times to see the cairns but we were able to get back on the trail. Icy and snowy at parts but we were fine with our hiking boots (no trek poles or shoe grips).

A short little hike to see two arches for the price of one... it's unbelievable how big some of the arches are!

Great hike! It would have been a great run if I had warmer running clothes and more motivation!

Loved this hike! If you can climb a ladder, this is DEFINITELY worth it to check out. Way less crowded than the NPs, and gorgeous views all around.

I won’t call this a hike, more like a quick trail to view these stunning arches! Perfect place to start and be sure to head over to Windows.

A quick and short hike. The views of the arches are beautiful, a nice brisk fall day to be out on the trail.

Great trail but it is a little iffy if you have big dogs. We took our golden and he LOVED it. The rock wall you have to climb and the ladder were too much for him and I couldn’t lift all 85 lbs of him up it. The rest in our party made it up fine to see the remaining 1/4 mile and you can still see the arches from the area right before the wire guide climb.

So glad we did it. Met a fellow full-timer on the trail and talked for an hour afterwards as we gazed at the AMAZING amount of stars.

Beautiful way to see the sandstone buttes of Monument Valley. We started around 10 AM when it was still in the low 40s. Easy hike on a cool day, it probably would be considered moderate on a hot summer day as there is no shade at all. We saw very few people along the way.

Worth hiking this trail to the end as it provides views on the other side of the mesa too! For more details and pics, visit https://etbtravelphotography.com/2018/11/20/best-hikes-canyonlands/
