Paria Movie Set to Starlight Arch

Paria Movie Set to Starlight Arch Professional Review and Guide

"The route begins on a usually washed-out dirt road, then follows a narrow, sinuous drainage to the foot of the Vermilion Cliffs. From there the hike ascends steep talus slopes, surmounting the cliffs on the rim of a wooded mesa, which is followed to the foot of the skyline arch.

The aperture of Starlight Arch is visible from US 89 and briefly en route to the movie set as a pinpoint of light near the top of a cluster of Navajo Sandstone domes atop the Vermilion Cliffs. It seems a faraway, nigh unreachable goal, and those who complete this demanding hike gain a well-earned sense of accomplishment. Only hikers with determination, experience, and good routefinding skills should attempt this trip."
