Overview

This is a easy out and back trail in Moab, Utah.

Cross the railroad tracks then follow the obvious trail and green blazes along slickrock. Be sure to stay on rock and trials to avoid destroying the fragile cryptobiotic soil. There is a short climb with moki steps and a steel cable handrail to assist you. A ladder is shortly after. Dogs may struggle with this area, but many people carry them the short distance. Bowtie arch can be seen just before Corona Arch.

Please refrain from scratching anything into the rock. Vandalism of public lands and natural resources is illegal under federal law, and the potential penalties for someone who is convicted of class A misdemeanor vandalism include a fine of up to $100,000, or up to one year in jail.

Solid waste does not decompose in the desert. Please pack out your dog's waste and use wagbags (available at any gear store in town) for human waste. Pit toilets can also be found at the campsite across the road.

Roped activity (including roped climbing, rope swinging, and rappelling) is currently prohibited on Corona Arch.

Getting Started

Park at the designated parking area along Potash Road.

Taking Children

The moki steps, cable, and ladder may be difficult for young children. 9/10
