Canyonlands National Park: Mesa Arch Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A very short walk to a magnificent arch with a spectacular view. This is a perfect trail for beginners. It’s easy and short, and a detailed display at the trailhead explains how to hike the trail. Although the NPS manages this trail for beginners, it has something for everybody, and halfway along the short loop you’re treated to the spectacular Mesa Arch.

The arch is right on the edge of a 500-foot cliff, part of a 1,200-foot drop into Buck Canyon. You can get a keyhole view of the White Rim country through the arch. If you step back a few steps, you can also frame the lofty La Sal Mountains (usually snow-topped in the spring) within the arch."
