An easy walk out to an arch perched right on a cliff edge. A great sunrise hike in Canyonlands National Park with great views. The Island in the Sky mesa rests on sheer sandstone cliffs over 1,000 feet above the surrounding terrain. Every overlook offers a different perspective on Canyonlands' spectacular landscape. The Island is the easiest district to visit in a short period of time, offering many pullouts with spectacular views along the paved scenic drive. Hiking trails and four-wheel-drive roads access backcountry areas for day or overnight trips. Mesa Arch Trail is easy and offers great views from the arch perched right on a cliff edge. A great sunrise hike. Start: Mesa Arch parking area Time: 30 minutes

Short easy hike through desert vegetation to a neat little arch that looks eastward and would probably provide great panoramic photos early in the morning. You can't stand on the arch apparently but there are other rocks you can climb on top of for beautiful views to the east area of the canyons. The La Sal mountains look majestic with a little bit of snow pack still left at their peaks.
