100 Classic Hikes Utah (The Mountaineers Books)

"Tall enough to fly a small plane through—not that that’s remotely advisable—Corona Arch is a really breathtaking arch just outside Moab. Not in any of the national parks, this arch is still popular due to its gorgeous shape as well as the relative ease of access. With its 335-foot span and 140-foot height, not to mention its sinuous curve as it delicately reaches out from the sandstone rock of which it once was fully a part, Corona Arch is one of the most beautiful examples of a natural arch to be found in all of Utah. The fact that your trail to and from the arch is mostly slickrock only adds to the appeal of this hike." Read more

"This excellent hike above the Colorado River Canyon leads to three arches, including Corona Arch, one of the largest arches in the Moab area. The Corona Arch Trail is a great 3-mile hike to one of the largest and most spectacular arches near Moab. Corona Arch, also called Little Rainbow Bridge, is your final destination, but the trail also passes Pinto Arch and Bowtie Arch along the way." Read more
Best Easy Day Hikes the Four Corners (Falcon Guides)

"This spectacular hike is a 2.2-mile out-and-back route 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, Pinto Arch (Bow Tie Arch), which tends to be overshadowed by the size and beauty of Corona Arch (known by some as Rainbow Arch)." Read more

"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." Read more
