Looking Glass Rock (also known as Looking Glass Arch) is a prominent rock formation located off Highway 191, about halfway between Moab and Monticello. It is accessible by an unmaintained road that, in all but inclement weather, should be easily passible with 2WD and/or low clearance.

While it is possible to drive up to the base of Looking Glass Rock, the best views are to be had by making a short and easy scramble up the backside of the rock. This scramble will lead to the arch or “looking glass.” From this opening in the rock you’ll have incredible views. The far side of the rock opens into cavernous alcove and is quite the site.

You may even spot some rock climbers as Looking Glass Rock is a popular climb and features an optional 130’ completely free hanging rappel back down to the bottom.
