Due to mobility problems we viewed from the roadway. There were people climbing on the base which gave a scale to this immense natural arch.

Drive by arch that may be interesting if you're coming north but after Arches and Canyonlands is just another arch. If you were at home in Peoria it would be a major tourist attraction but out here it's just another arch.

Nice large stone arch right off Route 191. This is especially nice if you are a drone pilot as it is one of the few arches located outside of a national park where you can fly and photograph with a UAV.

Go to the top to enjoy the view around. This was our first before seeing all the others and the short walk was good

This is a bonus Arch if traveling route 191. Actually this is a very photogenic arch right along the road!

This "rock" was phenomenal! In 1940, a huge boulder broke away from it, causing the opening to become much larger. So happy we got to see this in person!

Along route 191, south of Moab. You will pass it if you are traveling to Needles part of Canyonlands Park. Just pull over to the side of the road and enjoy. No admission; just walk right up to it.

This arch is very accessible as it is on the way to the Needles section of Canyonlands. You will see it on your left side if you drive from Moab. You can go to the base of the arch in 10 minutes but use proper...More

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.
