Hiking to Wilson Arch

Utah Wilson Arch Trail

Added by Prajit Ravindran

  • Beautiful, huge arch
  • Easy hike from HWY 191
  • Quick pit stop near Moab, Canyonlands, and Arches National Parks

To get to Wilson Arch, drive south of Moab on US-191 S for about 25 miles. The arch is right off US-191S and there is parking on either side of the highway. Keep an eye out after you pass the LaSal Junction - the arch is visible from the road.

From the parking lot there is a a very short (~0.5 mile) hike to get to the base of the arch. Watch your step during the last 50 feet of the hike - it can be a bit tricky due to a steep slope.

Pack List
