|Another enchanting place in southeast Utah ...
Looking Glass Rock is another off-the-beaten-path rock structure that is worth a visit if you love the arches and red rock scenery
around Moab, Utah. Firstly, it should be noted that
this is named Looking Glass Rock; it is not officially an arch, even though some refer to it as
"Looking Glass Arch" online. I don't know how definitions go, but just because a rock has a hole in it, doesn't necessarily make it an arch.
When you approach the rock from Looking Glass Road, the rock looks like a modest butte. However, it has three distinct sides:
the butte as you approach, the side with the small hole (the trailhead side), and then the massive rock opening.
Make sure you go to that third and final side!
Directions: From Moab, travel south on Highway 191 past the La Sal, Utah exit.
(Looking Glass Road & Highway 191 is north of Wilson Arch by a mile or two.)
Turn west at Looking Glass Rock Road; there are signs on both sides of the highway. Travel on the
dirt road for approximately two miles to the ordinary butte on the left, and follow the signs to the Looking Glass Rock trailhead on the left.
A spectacular opening in the rock awaits your company.
Nothing beats southeastern Utah scenery ... nothing.
