Island in the Sky District
You may have seen it on your friends' social media accounts, or maybe you have photos of it as your computer background image. It's a popular photo for a reason. Mesa Arch is a spectacular stone arch perched at the edge of a cliff with vast views of canyons, rock spires, and the La Sal Mountains in the distance.
It's also a relatively easy trail to hike at just a half mile (0.8 km) long. Along the way, you'll see signs pointing out some of the common Canyonlands plants and their traditional uses.
During busy seasons, the parking lot at Mesa Arch can fill. If you can't find a parking spot, come back at another time. We recommend visiting early or late in the day.
