Beautiful moderate hike that won't feel like a freeway at rush hour. The arch is HUGE! Worth the stop.

This is a great hike that you can do easily from Moab without going into Arches National Park. The drive down Potash Road beside the Colorado River passes Indian paintings and the car park for Corona Arch is large. Take insect repellent though because there...More

We hiked up to the Arch the second time. It was still amazing. Arches NP was totally crowded, as other hikers reported, but at 1:00 p.m. we were alone... So quiet and gorgious. On the day we hiked, there were only about fiveteen other people...More

Get up early and catch the sunrise at Corona Arch. It is SPECTACULAR! The trail can be done by young and old alike. There are some hard climbing areas but it will just take a bit more time. Well worth the Journey. Perfect hike if...More

Yes, it's paved. The trailhead parking lot is dirt, but it's right off the road which is paved. It's a really easy drive from downtown Moab or from Arches NP.

Hi My answer would be it depends. There are a couple places where you need to step up using a cable. It is a very short step up. If you regularly hike with a baby, I would think you would be ok.
