Jeep Arch (Gold Bar) Trailhead

The Jeep Arch (Gold Bar) Trailhead is a 2.0 miles hike one way with an elevation gain of about 800 feet. The trail is a primitive trail marked by rock cairns and occasional signing. Area Attractions: Trail passes beneath Jeep Arch and there are long range views of Culvert Canyon, Gold Bar Rim, Amasa Back, Behind the Rocks and the LaSal Mountains.Route Description:The trail leaves the canyon bottom on an old railroad access road, crosses the tracks and proceeds along a level bench for the first 1.2 miles. At this point it becomes a loop, requiring a steeper ascent to reach another bench leading to either side of the arch. The trail passes beneath the arch, and continues back to the loop intersection. There are great views the entire length of the hike, but especially as the trail gains elevation
