This spectacular hike is a 2.2-mile out-and-back that leads to a very recognizable and well-known arch in the Moab area. The hike requires some rock scrambling in a couple of areas but is still an ideal hike for families. Hikers will also get to see a second arch on this hike, Pinto Arch (Bowtie Arch), that tends to be overshadowed by the size and beauty of Corona Arch (known by some as Rainbow Arch). So many hikes in the Moab area culminate with a big “wow,” and the Corona Arch Trail will not let you down if you’re expecting that wow factor at the end. However, because of its proximity to Arches National Park, Corona Arch tends to be a little less known. This 2.2-mile trail travels over a slickrock landscape that has been well marked with cairns, making it easy to follow. From the trailhead the trail gains over 400 feet in elevation.
