Description

Arch Rock is a nice 30 ft. arch amongst an interesting landscape of massive boulders. This arch is rare for the national parks as an arch that you can actually go touch, and the area around Arch Rock is perfect for bouldering and rock climbing for people of all skill levels.

Short Walk: If you don't camp at White Tank, park by the dumpsters/info stand and hike past site 9. The trail is less than a mile but does require you to navigate in between or over large rocks. You can take the loop or wander to your own liking.

Signage isn't great so consider downloading a map for this trail or using the Hiking Project mobile app.

Family Friendly: Narrow passages through the rocks might present a challenge for out-of-shape adults, but they are perfect for kids to explore. The area can be maze-like, so don't let them get too far.
