WOW. I am so glad we tacked this on to our trip. Well worth doing both quick hikes at this trailhead. Be aware that the arch gets virtually no sunlight- it was extremely cold and icy down there even though it was a nice sunny day in the parking lot. It was incredible to go see the ice on the cave walls.

Fabulous short hike with great reward. Much bigger arch than you would expect, and fun to walk along the edges of the bluffs. The little waterfall behind the arch is cool too!

Beautiful! We had already hiked so at the end of our day headed to the Bear Creek Overlook. We saw the trailhead to the arch and decided to check it out, so glad we did. Beautiful walk and the arch was stunning.

A bit of a scramble in spots, but the arch at the end is amazing! If you have young kids (under say 7) you might end up carrying them back up to the parking lot!

such a beautiful place, especially in the morning. It seems many could not find the actual Trail head, as the overlook reveals many signs of trespass. easy peasy walk in the woods with lots of nice views of big rock formations. I was surprised with the seemingly large amount of traffic to the area, this place was still an empty lot at mid day.

Great short hike with the trail very well maintained! The arch itself is impressive as is the scenery along the way. I was amazed at the size of some of the trees and loved the part of the trail going between massive rock walls. On a nice Sunday afternoon, we only saw one other car the whole time we were there. Definitely a good place to visit if looking to avoid crowds! The short walk out to the Bear Creek Overlook offered a nice view also.

Very pretty! Trail goes up and down with some steps throughout. I would recommend to stay to the right when it forks for an easier hike. It will loop back around.
