Corona Arch Highline
Photo By Tim Banfield

  • Title: Corona Arch Highline
  • State/Province/Region: Utah
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Moab
  • Nearest Town: Moab
  • Brief Directions: From Moab follow Route 191 north. Cross the Colorado River and continue 1.4 miles until you see the sign for State Route 279. Turn left (west) onto this road and follow it just above 10 miles until you see the sign for Corona Arch Trailhead on the right. A 1.3 mile trail takes the hiker from near the banks of the Colorado River up to a sandy plain and then over slick rock slopes to reach the Bowtie and Corona Arches. Elevation gain is 440 ft. The many alcoves that decorate the walls along the length of the trail add to the beauty of the area. From the base of Corona Arch, railroad tracks can be seen several hundred feet below at the bottom of the Bootlegger canyon. taken from Summitpost.org
  • Notes: This highline takes a long time to rig. Make sure you allow a lot of time for setup. There are 5 bolts on the top of the arch and there is an exposed scramble that will take you to the top. Have fun! This is a beautiful place.
  • GPS Longitude: 109.61997
  • GPS Latitude: 38.57993
  • Best Season: Autumn
  • Description: This is a shot of Slackliner Scott Rogers on a highline across Corona Arch.
  • Gear: Canon 5d ii, 17-40L, rigging equipment to include: harness, aiders, ascender, grigri and a bunch of biners, 70m static line, homemade skateboard deck as a seat

    Beautiful Image! Astro/Night photography seems to be quite a challenge, and you captured a remarkable landmark with it! Hoping to give this a try on next photo trip to the Hawaiian Islands. Will...

    "Absolutely in the right place at the right time". So very rare to see a double rainbow let alone have your camera with perfect glowing conditions.. Great capture
