Sixty-seven monolithic stone spires called sedimentary pipes accentuate multi-hued sandstone layers revealing 180 million years of geologic time. The color and beauty found here prompted a 1948 National Geographic Society expedition to name the area Kodachrome after the popular color film.

Interesting trail that goes into two different box canyons. If you want a medium length trail this is the one.

Trail climbs to a bench that have great views. The ranger told me this trail was her favorite. After hiking all of the trails in the park I agree.

Easy .3 mile to the arch. Hiked the loop. There is cutoff trail that climbs to the top of the rock. We stayed on the main trail.

Revisit from February. No mud or snow to slog through this time. Great trail but missed the water fall in cool Cave. Hikes at the break of dawn while it was still cool. No one on the trail.

The kids loved this trail! Wear your water shoes and they can splash in the creek the whole way.

Easy day hike with numerous shallow stream crossings. Out and back hike that only takes a few hours. Go as early as you can, it is cooler and less people.
