If you are needing a quick hike (and a cardio workout), this trail is perfect for you! It has a good incline along with some steps right at the start. But it soon levels off for awhile giving you time to catch your breath, which I do quite often. Today I had to walk thru water running down the path along with a lot of mud. But no big deal. That is why I wear hiking boots.
When you reach the big rock, see picture above, there is another incline. This area has decent size rocks, not little gravel pieces, you will be walking over. The good news, though, is you are now in the home stretch of the tiny arch. Yes, I said tiny, but you just have to go see it! This is truly one of my favorite places to take family and friends that come to visit because it is so cool and different!
