We saw Wilson's Arch as we were driving to Moab and decided to stop our car, park and hike. Real short but so great for photo taking. This is our first Arch. Stunning view. Love it!

Worth a quick stop for a picture or simply a quick glance as a starter for all the arches in Arches National Park.

This viewpoint is great. Very good for photo shooting. Breathtaking views. You need to prepare a nice camera with wide angle lens.

This is right off the highway and free! We stopped before sunset and hiked up. Noticed the sun was going down soon so we stayed to watch the sunset and it’s a lovely view from there.

Very nice arch located just off the main road and NOT in Arches National Park. Worth a stop if you have time

Take an easy hike right off the highway to Wilson's Arch. You can literally stand in the arch and use it as a frame for some outstanding photos! The best forever souvenir for your memory of a great experience!

You can scramble all the way up or part way to get the best picture. It's just by the road so an easy stop

Looks like you have the info you need. Enjoy. It is so convenient that it's worth the stop and short (but a bit steep) hike to reach the arch.

Agree with CDGT Trips above. It's not a far walk but potential hazards do exist especially for the elderly.
