DIRT ROAD TO TRAILHEAD WAS TOO ROUGH FOR OUR CAR. WOULD RECOMMEND 4 WD VEHICLE.

The road to the trail head is 4 miles of dirt road, very bumpy, rough ridged and muddy in place. The hike is great. The creek intersects the trail numerous times and one is likely to get wet feet. But it is worth it. The trail is mostly shaded through pines and oaks. The arch is small and can be crossed but we did not do it. Hike is uphill. Enjoyed the hike very much.
