Funnel Arch (aka Cable Arch) is a short, yet rewarding hike to a massive arch located only 15 minutes from Moab, UT. Compared to the nearby Corona Arch, you'll likely see any people at this arch since it's not as well know and there's no trail sign.

Funnel Arch is a popular area for people to practice rappelling skills (see short video here), if you have the gear and experience.

However, if you are short on time but still want a great destination, the waterfalls is the perfect turnaround point.
