  • Arch Rock is located near the White Tank Campground. Though there is a marked trailhead, it can be confusing. Start next to site 9 and take that established path a half mile to the rock. When you see ...  more »

  • There is a short 2/10 mile (0.3 km) round-trip hike to get to one of the few arches found in this park. The arch is not huge so don't expect it to be like the ones found in Utah. The arch has a couple of boulders laying against it you may not get any fantastic natural frame pictures. Still, an interesting site for a small effort. As with all hikes in Joshua Tree, bring water, wear sunblock and a hat as there is little or no shade depending on the time of day.
  • Eh. It's cool and short, but cooler places in the park. Wish I would have come at night like someone else on this suggested.
  • An amazing place to go at night. The view in the back drop of the milkway galaxy looks brilliant.
  • Amazing park with marvelous views of huge stones, exhibits and camping places.
  • Fun & easy to climb at sunset or sunrise when it's not too hot.
