Wilson Arch: The One You Can Climb

And What a View!

Wilson Arch just happens to sit on the side of the road, not far from Hole N’ The Rock. In fact, we first noticed it on our way to Hole N’ The Rock. We actually passed it before we realized what it was, so we immediately turned around. This we had to check out; it seemingly came out of nowhere.

Utah is famous for its Arches National Park, which is home to the famed Delicate Arch. But Wilson Arch gives you the chance to see one of these rare natural phenomena up close. And you can climb it!

It’s a steep trek up and a tough workout from its base, which is literally right off Route 191. But you’ll forget all that once you see the view. Would you believe people actually live on the other side? Expensive real estate to be sure (see pictures below). Please be careful though; Wilson Arch is delicate and has, unfortunately, been vandalized over the years, so please be respectful of the natural beauty of the area.
