  • Beautiful arch with sheer cliff on the other side of it. Hang on to the young ones but be prepared to enjoy the view. Not to difficult of a hike to get to the arch. Totally worth it. Beautiful colors and various plants along the Terrain including one little marked ash tree along the way. Enjoy!
  • Worth the hike. Beautiful scenery, make sure you do it early in the morning. 2.7 round trip hike. Bring water sunglasses. Lon g sleeve. Etc.sun block.
