  • Grosvenor Arch is very accessible, but please check with the Cannonville BLM visitor center first, for road conditions. By the way, you'll have a shorter drive along Cottonwood Canyon Road--unpaved, r...  more »
  • If you visit Kodachrome & have a high clearance vehicle, it's worth the 11 mile (each way) dirt road trip. There are other pretty views along the way as well. Be careful with those bumps!!! You also n...  more »
  • If you are in the neighbourhood this is worth a view. However, please do not attempt the road in wet conditions unless you know how to drive off road and have a 4x4. The surface turns to clay in light...  more »
  • We decided (OK, I decided...) to take the shortcut between Glen Canyon and Bryce Canyon. 40 dirt miles and more than 2 hours later (in a Toyota Corolla) we made it. The arches and the area are beautiful. I recommend something with better clearance than a Corolla, lowers the pucker factor.
  • Beautiful arch! It is near the north end of the Cottonwood Canyon Road; past Kodachrome Basin State Park from the north. In wet weather, stay away! We did this in July, 2009 on the way back to Texas from Canada.
  • Beautiful, well worth the stop to see. No one was out there, and that gave us the feeling of being explorers coming across this for the first time...that is when you look past the paved trail going up...and the years worth of graffiti at the base. That aside, Grosvenor's Arch is well worth the stop.
  • Don't get lost on the way to the arch! It's a long and winding road with awesome cliffs, plateaus, mountains, deep cracks over 50 feet across as close as 15 feet to the road. Driving with the windows down brought the strong aroma of the wild sage fields. Getting there was half the fun!
  • Hard to get to in wet conditions. Unfortunately we had to turn around because of too much mud. Plus a flash flop warning was issued when we where there! Super cool road and scenery though!
