Corona Arch

Corona Arch is a natural sandstone arch near Moab, Utah in a side canyon of the Colorado River. It can be accessed via a 1.5-mile (2.4 km) hiking trail from Utah State Route 279.

This is the site of a rope swing shown on some YouTube videos. One titled, "World's Largest Rope Swing", has garnered more than 27 million views since it was posted February 15, 2012. Such videos have led to more people jumping from Corona Arch. On March 24, 2013, a man from Utah was killed due to miscalculating the distance to the ground before he swung from the arch.[1] After much discussion, in 2015 a temporary ban was placed on rope-swinging from many arches.[2]
