If you want to see nature's wonder and can get out an hike here it is. It is right beside the highway a little south of Moab. It is well worth the stop and makes a wonderful picture.

This arch is right off the side of the road and can be enjoyed from the road or with a short hike up to the arch. The arch is located about 20 minutes south of Moab.

We saw this on our way to Natural Bridges Monument. Early morning sun was shining through the arch, it was well worth the stop.

Climbed to the arch. Right off the road so you can park your car and climb five minutes and be right there at the top.

Wilson Arch is by the highway south of Moab. If your trip doesn't have time for both Canyonlands and Arches -- especially if arriving by car from the south -- stop at Wilson Arch, then go to Canyonlands. It's free. You can climb the hill...More

It is an easy arch to visit between Moab and Bluff. The access to it is extremely easy. Just pull off of the road into the parking lot.

Looks like you have the info you need. Enjoy. It is so convenient that it's worth the stop and short (but a bit steep) hike to reach the arch.

Agree with CDGT Trips above. It's not a far walk but potential hazards do exist especially for the elderly.
