Scenic mtn bike, hiking and motorcycle trail along the old dugway. The trail, hacked out of rock is single car width strewn with boulders and rocks. Easily passable on mtn bikes and hiking. The views are spectacular, overlooks Arch Canyon and the velly below the ridge from 1000' feet up.

beautiful area to spend many days in. There are a few easy top rope climbs at the mouth and a big petroglyph panel near the mouth. the canyon is awesome and has many great archeological sites.

Arch Canyon trail starts approximately 2.4 miles north of UT Hwy 95 off Comb Wash road. This is a sandy trail that crosses the wash numerious times as it winds between steep canyon walls. There's Cliff Dwellers ruins and Petroglyphs a few places along the way. Length is 8 miles from the begining to end of the canyon (the turnaround point) We went on the 12th of May and it was hot! This would be a nice winter hike. High clearance 4WD required if driving.

We were in the neighborhood of Blanding UT, and decided to take a look at the canyon. We only went as far as the Arch, we did not do the whole 18 mile hike. Most memorable thing, it was hot! But any hike in Utah, is worth the effort.
