The World’s Largest Natural Arch Is Right Here In Utah And You’ll Want To Visit

Did you know that Utah is home to the top two largest arches on the planet? Landscape Arch (in Arches National Park), and Kolob Arch (in Zion National Park) are both very similar in size. Depending on how you measure the arches, you could conceivably call either of them the biggest and best. This was a hotly-debated topic amongst geologists for years. In 2006, geologists at the Natural Arch and Bridge Society put the issue to rest once and for all, naming Landscape Arch the largest – by a total of three feet.

Utah has six of the top 10 largest arches in the world! Morning Glory Natural Bridge, Rainbow Bridge, Sipapu Natural Bridge and Stevens Arch are all on the list.
