Arches National Park: Tower Arch Professional Review and Guide
"A moderate hike to one of the most remote arches in the park. Tower Arch is a short but rugged hike, or as indicated by the sign at the trailhead, a primitive trail, and the NPS considers it “strenuous.” To avoid an afternoon thunderstorm, which makes the Salt Valley Road impassable, start early.The trail immediately starts to climb to the top of the bluff, up a steep but short incline. After this brief climb, the trail continues up and down until you see the massive Tower Arch surrounded by a maze of spectacular sandstone spires. Along the way, you get great views of the Marching Men rock formation on your left and the austere Klondike Bluffs on your right."
