Hiking the loop counter clockwise is suggested since the path down rough trail from the escarpment is easier to spot going downhill. It's a beautiful trial with gorgeous views from the bluffs.

This has a diverse amount of sites-naturally the arch which is amazing, abstract-like rock formations, native forest, babbling creek to cross a few times and a rock vantage point to appreciate the vista while eating lunch.

Parked at the picnic area, and, after starting towards the trail head, we remembered the previous comments stating to go counter-clockwise. This requires walking out to the road and starting with directions for the "pinch-em-tight" trail. Near the end of the loop, we explored off trail and climbed up to the under side of Gray's Arch. We call this a happy accident! Fairly low traffic on the loop and perfect weather. We would visit again!

Amazing views, hiking, elevation changes and people along the trail. Great if you want to challenge yourself as the second half has quite the climb up.
