Most gorgeous sunrise spot in Canyonlands

NileGuide Expert tip:
Bring a headlamp or flashlight to navigate the trail in pre-dawn darkness
Located in the popular Island in the Sky District, Mesa Arch sits right at a clifftop, providing dramatic views. Best seen at sunrise, this famous little arch attracts hordes of photographers just before dawn nearly every day in the busy season. Off-season, you might find yourself the only one enjoying a spectacular sunrise from this most excellent of viewing spots. At only half a mile roundrtrip, it's great for kids.
