Middle Route Trailhead to Cobra Arch Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The hike to the aptly named Cobra Arch is a rewarding day trip for hikers with good route- finding ability. The route follows the rim of The Dive, high above the nearly invisible slot of Buckskin Gulch.

Vistas en route are part of this trip’s attraction, stretching across the vast, sandy surface of the Paria Plateau, punctuated by such slickrock landmarks as the Coyote Buttes, Steamboat Rock, and Wolf Knolls. True to its name, Cobra Arch is reminiscent of an ancient stone sculpture of a serpent’s head."
