The arch is just west of the west half of the Navajo Loop Trail
in Bryce Canyon. At the bottom of the switchbacks, a rocky ridge
parallels the trail for 1/2 mile and then drops down at the south
end where the trail turns left . Cross the wash to the west and
climb up the talus slope and continue along the top of the ridge to
its northern end. You will find that you are in front of the arch, but
with a wall behind the arch, the opening is not immediately
apparent. To see the arch with sky through the opening requires
a tougher talus slope climb to the west of the ridge involved.
Follow the west-leading wash to just past the ridge to get to a
small drainage heading north up the ridge. The higher you go,
the steeper it is; and there are two rocky columns flanking the view
of the arch. Go as high as you can to get the clearest shot.
