This arch and Marble Canyon Arch (2) are both in Utah, but
it is easier to reach them from Colorado. Traveling on I-70
in western Colorado, take the Fruita exit onto Colorado Rt.
340. Turn right at the Colorado National Monument turnoff.
From this road, there are two turnoffs to the town of Glade
Park. The first and shortest route is a well-maintained dirt road
while the second is paved. Take DS.00 Rd. west from the
Glade Park Store. Drive the 16 miles to the Utah border and
continue on the DS.00 Road for about another 5 miles and
look for an old 4wd trail on the right going northwest. Hike
up this trail for about six tenths of a mile and look for the arch
on the left. E-mail the author for the available geo coordinates.
