Explore Looking Glass Arch

Looking Glass Arch

Looking Glass Arch is a short, but steep hike with scenic views overlooking the Moab area.

Getting there:

From Moab, follow Highway 191 south for about 23 miles until you get to Looking Glass Road/Co. Rd. 131. Take a right and follow the road for about 2 miles and then turn left into the parking lot.

It is only about 0.10 miles from the parking lot to the arch itself, but there is a ~150 ft. elevation gain. Though this arch is easily accessible going to or from Moab, it is passed by many -- definitely worth making the quick detour!

a cool place to just come and walk around and check out but also a fun climb and rappel down. worth heading to.

A favorite

There's a great trad climb to the top of the arch and you rappel through the keyhole. So much fun.

Explore Faux Falls

Faux Falls is located near the Ken's Lake campground off Route 191, 20 minutes south of Moab. When I was there it was during several days of thunderstorms. The waterfall was really gushing.
