We thought this was gonna be kinda lame (Hinterlands 2020 didn't make it sound that great), but it was awesome! Short and easy, but a very cool little, windy arch. Past that, a bit more hiking and impressive overlook. Saw a teeny snake, too.

Some of the best views in the gorge, particularly at sunset! Some good scrambles up to the top of the arch or you can just take the trail to the top. Will definitely be back, plan to camp and catch the sunrise on the top!

One of my absolute favorite places at the gorge. Go a little past the window and climb up the top of the rock formations. A great camping spot with a killer view. Super easy for an overnight stay because parking isn’t far at all and well worth the view. Would recommend for anyone!!!

Beautiful arch well worth the short hike. Be sure and go past the arch and check out the small rock overlook for a great view. Also I hiked as far around the back area of the arch as I could and found a very unique and cool face design in the rock face.

We hiked up after a storm blew through. It was worth it, the view was spectacular. The sun set and the fog rolled in from the storm. We set up camp on top of the rock, a little muddy but not too bad!

Visited this trail today and really enjoyed it. We were the only ones there and it was so peaceful. Trail is super easy, but does include some mild inclines and lots of tree roots on the trail. Be sure to walk past the arch to see some spectacular views, but be mindful there are some places on the trail precariously close to the edge. Well worth the visit!
