Start on Chautauqua trail by the ranger station. After crossing a grassy meadow you enter a pine forest. Start paying attention to signs for Royal Arch as a number of other trails branch off. You know you're going the right way when you get to the flagstone staircase.

One of my all-time favorite trails. It was my Father's favorite hike when I was a kid and a special activity that I passed along to my kids!

Bring your foot spikes. The trail is icy in the shaded north facing areas.
