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.
