Description

This is a massive natural rock arch formed by eroding columnar basalt. It may be one of the largest arches in this area. Although it's not entirely obvious from below, this is a true freestanding arch. Pole and rail fences above and below the arch keep visitors at a distance as this is a sacred site for Native Americans.

Long Walk: From the Catherine Creek Trailhead, go northeast on the closed road marked "020" and soon down to Catherine Creek. Follow this closed road continues upstream to a junction with another closed road, marked "021". Follow the "21 Trail" as it crosses the creek and heads upstream. The trail soon reaches the Catherine Creek Arch, which looms over an abandoned corral, high above a talus slope made of fallen rock.
