Moab Utah's best half day hike could be the trail to Corona Arch and Bowtie Arch.  The trail starts at the parking lot on Potash Road  above the Colorado River.  There are   hiking trails, cliff climbing, biking, rafting, four wheel trails, and sightseeing areas all along the Potash road.
The parking area for the Corona Arch trailhead is just across from the Gold Bar campgrounds.  Corona Arch Trail is a half day non strenuous hike that takes you to
Corona and Bowtie Arches.  You encounter one area of slightly steep walking  when you first start and then an area of steps cut into a gently sloping cliff face where you are aided by a steel cable.  Otherwise the trail is easy and you are rewarded with a walk beneath the magnificent Corona Arch.
Corona  Arch off the Potash Road is a half-day hike.
