Wilson Arch is an arch that is seen from the highway 24 miles south of Moab. It has a span of 91 feet and is 46 feet high. Many people pull over to see this impressive landmark and hike up to it, while many more people just pass on by. This hike is no means a hike you drive out there just to see the arch. Rather, it's a pull over spot and take an unplanned hike on your way to Moab. As you are driving to Moab, you cannot miss it, it's on the East side of the highway less than a quarter mile away.
The hike up is along a steep and sandy slope. The trail takes you right into the arch where you can sit right under it.
