A nice little arch in the Joshua Tree NP backcountry just south of the Sheephole Valley Wilderness. It's a bit of a drive down CA-62 but worth it, more for the surrounding area than the arch itself. There are no trails there but there is a Call Box marking the limited parking area. Please note this is an off trail route.

Awesome place to explore! There is even a fossil of a giant slug in one of the caves ;)

A nice little arch in the Joshua Tree NP backcountry just south of the Sheephole Valley Wilderness. It's a bit of a drive down CA-62 but worth it, more for the surrounding area than the arch itself (even though my family really liked the arch). There are no trails but there is a Call Box marking the limited parking area and, NOW, you have this awesome route to guide you. Go ahead, take this on, it's a bit more about the journey here but well worth it.
