Arch Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"A day hike/wilderness route to a high overlook in the Ajo Mountains. Arch Canyon is named for a pair of natural arches that decorate a cliff wall high above its entrance. The larger arch is 90 feet wide, and a tiny, gracile arch is perched atop it. These arches are best viewed from the entrance of the canyon; as the path penetrates the cleft, they are hidden from view. The track is well-defined for the first half-mile as it follows the main canyon. Beyond this point, the route becomes a steep scramble marked by cairns as it climbs to an overlook of Boulder Canyon."
