Mesa Arch lies right on the edge of the Island in the Sky Mesa, at the top of a 600-foot drop-off into Buck Canyon. The arch is small by Utah standards-roughly 50 feet long and 15 feet high. Nevertheless it presents some nice views of the canyons below. The La Sal Mountains are nicely framed by the opening, with the Monster Tower and Airport Tower rising from the White Rim Plateau in the foreground. If you look carefully you can also see the Washerwoman Arch through the opening of Mesa Arch. The Washerwoman is situated near the top of another sandstone pinnacle that stands just north of the Monster Tower, 1.4 miles from the rim. Trail: Well marked, easy to follow.
