Hiking to Wilson Arch

Wilson Arch Trail

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.
