This hike shows as Red Hill but the BLM name is Red Hollow. It's ascends up for about a mile and a half to a fence/gate where it changes to Thor's Lair trail. This trail offers well marked options but they all lead down to the BLM's Thunderbird Garden trailhead behind the Cedar City Golf Course. The uphill Red Hollow trail is mostly in a canyon. The descending Thor's Lair is more wooded. Found one spot near the end of Thor's Lair with a decent view to the west. Not a bad hike close to town.
Did this hike today-it was very muddy but overall an enjoyable hike. It does get pretty long on the way back. If you continue on the trail beyond the sign saying trail is done, you can get up to a nice rock area with a better view of the arch.
It took us 5.5 hours, 15 miles to hike to the arch, this sign is small and the arch is up high if someone wasn't there to point it out we would of hiked passed it. Amazing views along the way, well worth it, easy hike if you can endure the milage.
