  • We used a local map to the arch following the mileage. Once leaving Hwy 191 we got turned around as the roads were not marked well. But we finally found the correct dirt road and the parking area...  more »

  • Great hike! Very hard to find. It is sandy and rocky for both driving and hiking. There is no shade so I suggest evening or bring plenty of sunscreen and water.
  • Don't trust the Google maps navigation. But it's a very quiet place. Easy hike, but no facilities are available.
  • Don't follow Google directions, they are wrong. Get directions from a hiking forum. A car can make it to the trailhead easily. The hike isn't long but it isn't handicap accessible one bit. Well worth the visit. Beautiful area.
  • This place is amazing! I took my family here and hiked in about 1.5 miles uphill to the arch. Mind you one son is 5 years old, and he made it in. It's not a bad hike at all. Once you get there the views are breathtaking, and you can take some good photos. Very relaxing and a nice place to visit if you get the chance!
  • Beautiful! Pretty easy hike (my 5 year old had no issues!). Not too busy. My family and I loved it!
