Watching the sunset here was magical. Very few people in the evening which was surprising. Seeing all the stars at night and hiking back was amazing. We even got a glimpse of the Milky Way

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!

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

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!

Great quick hike with exceptional views. The arch is great but hardly the only standout feature. I did it with my pup. She did great but a less agile dog might struggle with the scrambles.

Went Memorial Day weekend with a few friends, it was crowded but well worth the views! Enough to get a little sweat and heart rate up but not too difficult after a late night the day before!

Okay, so this trail is very pretty. You come to a spot where you can see Corona Arch across a ravine/canyon. It's pretty close at that point. So from this spot you have to climb up a large rock using a metal rope thing for support. I tried like 3 times but couldn't get my footing. We saw lots of other people doing it without any trouble, and my companion did it as well. But I want to warn people who might not have any experience climbing/scrambling that it can be challenging. So I didn't finish the trail, but it was worth doing anyway.

We did this trail with our 7 month old in the backpack carrier and our husky/golden retriever dog. We loved it, and it was easy enough with baby. Totally worth doing for the arch at the end, it's an amazing sight.

Beautiful hike in Moab. Last part to get over to the arches is a steep rock referred to as ‘the ladder’ and was too steep and slick for my dog so we couldn’t go all the way, but the view was still spectacular!

Incredible views!!! First hike after arriving in Moab and I loved every minute! It was surprisingly not too crowded arriving Saturday afternoon, we even got some photos without people in the background. I would do this one again for sure!

Busy trail, but easy and quick to run to arch and back. Amazing views and worth the time and effort to go to the arch.
