Another beautiful day at the arch. I was the only person doing it. Except for the sporadic sound of gunfire, everything is as expected- blue skies, calm ocean and breezy.

I loved this peak, the view is gorgeous. A little difficult to find. I asked a police officer for guidance bcuz he was the only one there, besides tourist. Although, he wasn’t to thrilled to direct me. Follow directions on imaps to Halona blowhole lookout. Park in the parking lot next to the Halona Blowhole Lookout. Please be safe and cautious!!!! Walk across the street (two way road) stay close to rail. where the street curves climb up the rocks (would wear pants) or you will definitely get roughed up. Reach to the top and you find your way to trail. Incline is steep. Stay to the LEFT there’s a walk way that leads up to the back of the Arch. I didn’t dare to get on top of the actual arch only bcuz i was scared. I considered myself an adventurous person, but i didn’t dare bcuz i was alone and no cell service. BTW is not a hike-hike, the adventure is finding it, and climbing the steep rock. Wear shoes with good traction unless you have spider man superpowers. Happy trailing!

An identical trail Koko Crater Arch Trail from Halona Blowhole is rated Difficult while this one is rated easy. Why the inconsistency?
