Courthouse Wash is a short, but very pretty canyon near the entrance to Arches National Park. You won’t see any arches in Courthouse but it is, nevertheless, a pleasant half-day walk. The canyon almost always has at least some water in it; consequently it is filled with cottonwoods and willows. The easiest place to walk is usually in the stream bed, so you should wear sneakers or other shoes suitable for wading. There are deer and raccoon tracks in the canyon, but the animal you are sure to see a lot of is frogs.
