I loved this hike. Beautiful scenery! I did not see anyone else the whole time. I would recommend downloading the map as the cairns are difficult to spot in parts and some have been washed away. Absolutely stunning- can’t wait to do it again!

Super fun hike - especially with the pups. We did it back in February around Valentines and it was pretty hot so beware of bringing your pups from now until end of summer and bring lots of water - it’s pretty exposed the whole way. Be sure to carefully follow the cairns otherwise you’ll be destroying a lot of soil.

This hike was a fun, private hike right down the road from the the heavily trafficked zoo-y Corona Arch trail. Head through the culvert to get to the marked trail head and the loop trail goes right through Jeep Arch. We did the loop clockwise.

Nice hike, saw only three other people. We camped at the Gold Bar recreation area across the street from Corona Arch trailhead. This trailhead is around 5 minutes up Potash from the Corona trailhead. The cairns are fairly difficult to see if you accidentally get below them on the return. It got pretty chilly once the sun started setting.

Awesome hike! The parking area is just past Corona arch parking area, on the right. There is no sign. You will see a sign for the trail once you walk through the culvert, on the left. The cairns are well placed throughout the trail, making it easy to follow. I did the complete loop, going left. . You will see a sign where the loop begins. You have to walk through the arch to complete the loop.
I saw a lot of places where people are walking on the black crusty soil in there. Don’t be an asshole. It takes almost 100 yrs for the soil to grow like that. Most of this hike you are on flat rock and a little dirt. But always avoid walking on the black crusty stuff!!

Wonderful trail, much less busy and just as spectacular as nearby Corona Arch. Some folks have blogged detailed information on this trail on the web, which I found helpful. There is a parking area just down the road from the much larger and busier trailhead for Corona Arch. You go through the culvert under the railroad tracks and follow the sign for the Jeep Arch trail. At about 1.2 miles there is a sign saying "Loop" and you can go either way. I went left and had no trouble getting up under the arch, but I couldn't find the trail going down the other side, maybe because there was a fair amount of snow cover on that side, and maybe because I am not so good at finding trails. So I just went back the way I came. Next time I will try the loop in the other direction. The trail is pretty mellow, with a little bit of scrambling. It is well marked with cairns and boot tracks, but if you aren't paying attention you will lose the trail. I had to stop and backtrack a couple of times, but never felt lost. It was exactly 4 miles the way I did it.

This is a lollipop trail that leads you through the arch. I recommend going left at the split, then making a clockwise loop. I would not recommend hiking this in the summer. No shade.
