I noticed a lot of these photos are of Corona Arch in Moab - not Willow Gulch in Escalante...

Great hike to an arch if you have dogs since they aren't allowed on trails in Arches State Park. Some difficult footing spots for dogs and two 'ladder' points where the dog will need to find their own path around since it's steep. Small dogs could be carried here. You can see the arch at a distance prior to these points though.

One of my favorite Grand Staircase hikes. I recommend making it an overnight and sleeping in the massive alcove across the creek from the arch. There are some great slots to explore as you continue upstream. It is a great water hike in the spring, full of toads and wildflowers.
