Escalante Utah Amazing Arch

Only 10 easy scenic miles from Escalante, Utah to visit the colossal Cedar Wash Arch. It's a casual walk to view the arch east to west from where you can park your car.

Cedar Wash Arch 
We discovered swirly gold, grey and white sandstone surrounding Cedar Wash Arch as we explored the many angles to this unassuming arch. Finding a route off the slick rock was an adventure.

Delighted and surprised we found other unusual slick rock formations on our way to viewing Cedar Arch west to east. Amazing, the power of water shaping rock into these unique structures.
