Description

This great Arch sits at the end of Negro Bill Canyon. There are many great spots to take a break, eat a snack, and enjoy this massive arch. If you're lucky, you might also see canyoneers rappelling off of the arch to the valley floor.

Short Hike: About 2 miles from the parking lot, creating a 4 mile hike.

Family Friendly: This is a good day hike for the whole family.

Gem Type: Natural Arch
