Uranium Arch

Uranium Arch This large arch is north of Moab on the west side of US 191. It has a span of 75 ft.. Driving north on US 191, note your mileage at the intersection of Utah 313 (the road to Dead Horse Point and Island in the Sky). Continue north on US191 for 5/8 of a mile and turn diagonally left onto a gravel road (this is Jeep Trail No. 9 on Trails Illustrated/National Geographic Map Moab North Map No. 500). Continue on this trail for 1 1/8 miles keeping left at a junction for about an eighth of a mile and turn right (north) at a second junction. Continue north for about 5/8 mile and turn left (this is still Jeep Trail No. 9) for about a quarter mile where the road turns south. Follow the trail south, keeping left at 3 junctions. Follow the trail around the south end of Corral Canyon, and follow a cliff for about a half mile and turn right aout 3/8 of a mile to the arch. There are many side trails which make it confusing to follow directions. One help in staying on-route is to follow the “7 Mile Rim Trail “ signs. Near the arch is a sign painted on the slickrock that simply says “arch”. The final part of the trail to the base of the arch is intimidating, but is negotiable by a properly equipped off-road vehicle. GPS Latitude and Longitude are 38deg. 40.570’N, 109deg. 42.4221’W, Altitude, 5196 ft.
