 The Trail:

There is a sign right on the road that tells you what this arch is called.

There is a sign right on the road that tells you what this arch is called.

You can see the arch from the highway but if you want a closer look you will need to go on Echo Canyon Road.

There really isn’t a trail for this trek as the Hanging Rock Arch is right next to the road.

It is located on private property so you aren’t allowed to go up to it.

This is a unique formation that spans about 25 feet across from end to end and looks sturdy

Head back to your car


Personal Thoughts:

I always love finding arches that are outside of Southern Utah.  It seems Southern Utah has a monopoly on arch, bridge and window formations but I sometimes forget that lots of other places have them as well.  You can see this formation as you are driving by but it may be worth a look if you have extra time to kill.

The Bottom Line

Difficulty is basically the length, duration and stress of the Trek. If the Trek is really long then it will receive a higher rating. If the Trek is short then it won't receive that high of a rating. However, difficulty rating also includes how tired we were at the end of the Trek.

Technicality is how strenuous the Trek is. If there is lots of bouldering or if there is bushwhacking involved then the rating will be higher. Technicality also includes if there are steep inclines or the need for ropes and other equipment.

Enjoyment is strictly how much fun we had doing the Trek. Regardless of how tired and exhausted we were, if we had a ton of fun doing the Trek then it will receive a higher rating.
