Description

This is the finest looking arch along the trail, it is part of the 2nd greatest concentration of natural arches outside of Arches NP and you almost always have it to yourself because of the remote nature of the location.

Half-Day Hike: The best way to view the arch is to hike in about 7 miles from the Pollock Bench Trailhead, or you can hike less than 2 miles from the Upper Rattlesnake Arches Trail (requires an hour of off-road driving and a 4th class down-climb/scramble to view from below however).
