The Corona Arch trail is a picturesque area with railroad tracks, prehistoric looking landscapes, a cairn village, two other arches; Bowtie and Goldbar, and finally the unmistakable Corona Arch.
The hike involves walking around 1.5 miles each way over a well maintained trail with an elevation gain of 440 feet. The trail climbs sharply above the road and crosses the railroad tracks as it continues into the canyon.
This classic hike then crosses slick rock benches on the way to the arches.
At one point the trail passes a cairn village with dozens of cairns. The first view of Bowtie and Corona Arch can be seen from this point.
After the cairns there is a short chain rope and small ladder that needs to be climbed as the trail continues to the base of the arch
Corona Arch is a spectacular sandstone arch measuring 140 feet across by 105 feet high.
