Phipps Arch Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Phipps Arch is a particularly interesting arch due to its oddly thick shape. Part of the Phipps–Death Hollow Wilderness Study Area (WSA), the arch is apparently named for Washington Phipps, a nineteenth-century friend or business partner of John Boynton."
