Fortress Arch

Fortress Arch Professional Review and Guide

"Fortress Arch is about as different from the nearby Castle Arch as two arches can be. There is nothing graceful about this span. It is big and bulky, the way you would expect a fortress to be, with at least 150 feet of stone suspended above the opening.

In comparing the two you can see that Fortress Arch is young and brawny, while Castle Arch is very old and fragile. Fortress Arch will continue to stand tall on the top of its ridge for many thousands of years after its neighbor has collapsed into a heap of rubble. Trail: Not well maintained, but easy to follow."
