Short easy stroll to several interesting rock formations at the half way point down the Arches National Park main road. I climbed to the bottom of the rock 73ft easy climb Easy paved 0.3 mile loop walk to a huge 3600 ton boulder perched atop a spire support, typical of formations in Arches NP. Try to fathom how the rock got up there in the first place and how much longer it will stay, or if it will fall in the near future, similar to the fate of Landscape Arch further down the road.

Easy loop - definitely worth parking and seeing the formation from a variety of angles!

This isn’t more of a “hike” than parking at WalMart and walking in from the parking lot is, but Arches National Park is awesome and this is still cool. Get out of your car and check it out.
