Mesa arch at sunrise is ~ 50' from the parking lot...
90% of Arches is near the road. there aren't many "hikes" except for Delicate Arch and Landscape Arch.

Go to Amazon and buy the book "Photographing the Southwest: Southern Utah" before you go. It details every place worth a picture in the southern half of Utah...how to get there....sunrise or sunset...type of lens...etc. I used it when I went last year and it was great!

Hate to disagree, but Mesa Arch is much more than 50' from the parking lot. My recollection is the round trip is about 1/2 mile.

As a follow-up, having forgotten to ask initially. Since we will be staying in a hotel whilst in Moab, will there be a problem entering Arches before sunrise and conversely staying until just after sundown?

Nope ... you can enter / leave at anytime.

Totally agree with Sparker. Mesa Arch is much further than 50 feet from the parking lot. It's not far nor hard to get to -- it's around a 1/2 mile hike, give or take. And while there are plenty of easy things to get to in the Moab area, the opportunities for those that like to hike are nearly endless.

You can enter anytime. If you are entering Arches for the first time outside the hours that there is someone there to pay for your park pass, I think Arches has a self-service electronic kiosk where you can pay. Canyonlands and Dead Horse Point have envelopes where you put your money in to pay if you enter before/after there is a ranger there to pay. Bring exact change if you have to pay with the envelope drop box. All park passes are good for 7 days. I think it is $10 for each park.

A good heads-up thank you. With this in mind and wanting to scope out some of the park, I'll probably first go during normal hours and purchase a pass then.
