  • This Arch is beautiful in itself and deserves a visit. Plus, the road to it is very picturesque. Another advantage is the possibility of (still) shoot her with koptera. Such places are becoming less and less. Definitely worth a trip!

  • If you have a 4WD as car rental, should see the arch anyway. You can get up to direct and there are few visitors. Depending on the weather situation has the road of more or less mud holes and flooded river crossings. We have seen a madman with a 20 ft RV, but we wouldn't recommend it.

  • One grand arch a short, easy walk from the small parking area which also has a vault toilet and a 4 table picnic area. Area is reached after a long drive on a semi-maintained dirt/sand road.
  • Great great place. Don't do it in a Chevy spark though. High risk of tire blowout, or getting stuck in a sand trap.
  • 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, 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.
  • 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.
