The Tukuhnikivista and Moab Rim Arches are located in the Behind the Rocks Area near Moab, Utah. Both arches are situated near the edge of the Moab Rim about 10 miles south of town overlooking the Moab Valley. The Moab Rim Arch is easily visible from Highway 191 although the air gap between the arch and cliff isn't apparent from that angle. Tukuhnikivista Arch sits back a little further from the rim and can only be spied from certain locations if one knows exactly where to look. A spur that branches off of the Behind the Rocks Jeep Safari Route passes by the Moab Rim Arch. From where the spur dead ends it is another 3 tenths of a mile of hiking to reach Tukuhnikivista Arch.
