Southern Utah Map


A must do hike. We didn’t realize the green splotches on the ground were there to guide us so we did a lot of extra hiking. We went at 4:00 pm the last day of July so it was pretty hot and miserable until we made it to the other side of the mountain where you can view the arch from. Even in the terrible heat all four of our young kids were able to make it. They really enjoyed pulling themselves up the ladder and rope areas.

What an incredible hike! I did it alone after consulting with some Utah friends. Right when you think you might be lost, there are green paint splotches on the rocks guiding you all the way to the Arch. Start early as there is no shade. Also wear good hiking shoes. So worth it!

Easy and very beautiful!

Super easy paved trail right off the road. I'm ridiculously out of shape and was able to make it easily. Waay cool petroglyphs too!

Follow the green dot road! (Sung to the tune in wizard of oz!) bring lots of water if hiking mid day. Fun hike.

We loved it!

Beautiful scenic drive in Moab area.

Easy to do! we did it with a baby, and it was perfect. Great early morning or evening hike.

The views are gorgeous on this hike. seeing Corona Arch for the first time was breathtaking. Nice easy hike for most. Might be a little challenging for young kids. There part of the hike you have to scramble for about 15ft. The hike took me about 20 min one way.

Did this trail 2 years ago. A wonder! It’s the untouched backyard that mysteriously brings you back to the dinosaur era. 20 people per day are permitted, which means you won’t see any other human most of the time. Complete wilderness without any man made sign, so you have to notice the landscape then roam freely!

This was an utterly amazing hike and so completely worth it! Went early to avoid the heat and didn’t really see that many people. Beautiful views, challenging hike - loved it!

A wonderland!

Wish I would have come when the weather was cooler. I was infatuated with the ladder near the beginning of the trail

Loved this hike did it at night and had our campsite set up already so just walked across the road from parking and smoked some cigars under the stars...

Swimming ? Any one knows of any places to swim along the ride?

My boys loved this trail.

Simply stunning.
Permits are difficult to obtain though and you will lucky to get one.
The pre hike talk by the ranger can be a bit daunting too for the inexperienced hiker. You are warned about getting lost and the possibility of an overnight stay until you are found, wildlife, etc.
My better half almost never went but in the end relented.
Think it was the best decision she ever made. Take plenty water and go early to make a day of it.
Also, anything less than a SUV down the 8 mile dirt, potholed road from the interstate to the trailhead is likely to leave you with under carriage damage.

This is a great place to watch the colors change over the canyon and see the colors come to life at sunset. Make sure you walk around Panorama Point first and then drive up to Sunset Point. The hike out is leisurely, but it does get crowded. The best time is to be there an hour before sunset and make sure you stay until it actually gets dark. If there are clouds, the sky will illuminate once the sun has moved out of sight. Bring a trail chair, water, and a snack for a great end to the day.

Great petroglyphs, large number, easy access.

Sorry, found it unremarkable.

If you have good knees, no fear of heights/cramped spaces and don’t mind scrambling up and down over boulders and squeezing through small spaces do yourself a favour and get the permit to do this hike!!! Best $6 we ever spent (per person). Full body workout, such an adventure and the best sense of solitude that we have had in Arches. We got lost for about 30min at one point but that’s half the fun (just keep retracing your steps to look for the trail marker). Follow advice of other reviewers and take the time to find surprise arch. Set off 3 hrs before sunset and only saw one other person on the trail - amazing! We got out just after sunset. Honestly can’t recommend this enough. If you are super worried about getting lost consider a ranger tour - apparently around 15 people per group.

Fun quick hike that ends with 2 awesome arches. Well marked and maintained trail to help get to the end destination.

Great shady trail with a lot of surprises and places to explore. A must do hike. We went counter clockwise on the trail. Make sure you find the arch located in the area before the true steps in an area marked dead end. Arrows on trail are a little (lot) misleading at times making exploring easy. Have fun!

A great short hike just outside of Moab, UT. Appropriate for children and dogs as well.

Great family hike. Our 5year old and 11year Old both loved this.

Crazy wild ride!! Not a big heights fan. Loved the climb and scramble. A little nervous twice, but we made it and it was awesome!!
