The Arch is a highlight! Great views! A lot of exposure at the top so if that bothers you than think twice. Reason for only 4 stars.... so so many different pathways from start to finish in this hike and a lot of them go the wrong way or other part of the loop. Use a gps or be prepared for a few wrong turns.

The first half of this hike was fantastic, beautiful time of year to be out in the mountains. Unfortunately the conditions once we crested were extremely windy and hiking the ridge line was sketchy due to this. The way down from Pocaterra was very difficult and you need to be very aware of hikers above you sending down rocks, not for the casual hiker or faint of heart. All in all it was a great day, just be aware the the "Hard" designation is not wrong on this one.
