The National Park features this arch but yet it has very poor accessibility. After about 11 miles of dirt road you hit the washed out remains of a road. Even with 4WD we had to park and walk 1 mile up the wash to the trail head. The area has recently been burned out so you are exposed on trail. A moderate switch back trail, nice wildflowers, zero people! There are many other nice hikes in GB; if time is limited, do something else.

Our Favorite Hike in Great basin NP. We didn't see another soul the whole time we were there, loved the peace & quite, some nice wild flowers on the way up, (We were there in 2012) Sadly I have heard the road there was washed out, & has not been fixed, better check on road status first

Requires an 11 mile drive along rough dirt road to get to trailhead (rangers suggest high clearance vehicle). Fun to get to, fun to hike. The 6-story arch is impressive. Trail is just over a mile to the first overlook. May turn around here if you don't want to get right under the arch.
