Do you ever wonder what is hidden out there in the desert, away from the roads and away from people? If so, this is a great hike for you and your dog.

Along the Liberty Bell Arch trail you will pass an old mine site, a natural arch with an opening shaped like the Liberty Bell, and truly breathtaking views of the Colorado River, all of which feel like exciting discoveries along this unassuming trail. Under foot and paw: Dirt, gravel, and some rock.

This is an enjoyable hike of moderate duration -- about four miles roundtrip. Not a good idea in the summer months, but we went in October and the weather was perfect. From where you park your car, it's about a mile back to the abandoned mine, which you can't miss. Not much of the mine to see, so other than taking a few photos of the structure at the top of the hill, it's not worth venturing any farther to see the opening. Shortly thereafter, you'll catch a glimpse of the Liberty Bell Arch. Just past it you come to a delightful view of the Colorado River. High above the river, it's a good place for lunch, before retracing your steps back to your car. Be careful crossing the road because of the construction and widening of the road.
