off road driving
Directions from Needles Visitor Center: Travel westward on the main park road and turn left at the first fork in the road. Drive approximately one half mile to another fork. Follow the left side of the fork to the Cave Spring Trailhead. From this point follow Salt Creek Road 3.5 miles to Peekaboo Camp. Vehicle access ends at Peekaboo Camp. A four-wheel drive vehicle is necessary from Cave Spring to Peekaboo Camp.
The map indicates this is Horse Creek, not Salt Creek. The Horse Creek Trail does not go to Angel Arch.
4-wheeled and motorcycled this trail prior to the closer for hiking only. Tried to hike to the All American man but ran out of energy and time. Sure which that I got to see it. Angel arch is amazing
Angel Arch is simply amazine
Back in March, backpacked down to campsite SC3. Freakin rough trip, but extremely worth it. Four Faces pictograph is down there, as well as other pictographs that are category 2. Can't wait to go back, but maybe at a later time because there was ice in the tent when we woke up.
Yea i backpacked through the upper salt creek trail to angel arch. It was agreat time, but probabley on of the hardest hikes ever experinced.
