Corona Arch

The Corona Arch Trail is a short walk (3 miles road trip) near Moab, Utah. You access the trail from the Potash Road (Highway 279) on the north side of the Colorado River. The trail has views of Goldbar Arch, Bowtie Arch and Corona Arch. Corona Arch is a great example of a buttress arch.

The trail has a small number of scrambling sections and traverses across exposed sandstone. It is an intermediate hiking trail. The trail is exposed to the elements. Be sure to bring water.

The arches and trail are in the Navajo Sandstone Formation. In addition to the arches, the trail offers stunning views of the Colorado River Canyon and many unnamed sandstone alcoves.
