Short, easy, and fun hike. The best view is climbing on top! It was amazing!

I have done this trail at least a dozen times with elderly, obese, young children and first timers. It is the best in fall when the wind is up, as it really does whistle. It is worth going a bit past the small arch and climbing up the rock ledges to see the view from up there. Be very careful doing this.

Possibly my favorite hike we did here. If you go past the arch on the left there is a place where the rock drops off and the view is spectacular! We were amazed! Watch your dogs and kids. Highly recommend this trail!!

Loved. Pretty short. Mile total maybe. Easy hike. Views are beautiful. No one else way out there. Can sit and take it for awhile. This would be very easy to get people out to see the views if they aren’t able to hike inclined trails.

Short & Easy. Family Friendly. Possible scramble to get on top of the Arch, I was not that brave, rope might help.

Very short trail to a nice little arch. The wind was blowing through this arch on the day we hiked, which provided a welcome relief from the heat. If you are in the area, this quickie is worth your time.

Sometimes it's great to admire the small things. This is a short trail for anyone just looking to take a quick hike or chill in nature. As obvious as the name there is a neat arch and some really interesting rocks and rock formations. I have posted photos of a few different things you may find. There is an area of the rock, if you aren't afraid of heights, that you can scramble up to get a better view. Respect the roped off areas on the top as they are there to help regrowth or the protection of certain plants.

This is a short hike to a hole in a rock just big enough to stand in. See the same thing at Angel Windows .25 miles up the road on a nicer trail with better scenery.
