Located west of Moab,Utah, Jeep Arch is a fun, moderately strenuous hike to a uniquely shaped arch in the Utah desert. And, as I try to do with all my hikes, it also features some great views. Total round trip distance is just under 4 miles.
To get there: Take US 191 north out of Moab to Potash Road (before the entrance to Arches National Park) and turn left. Take Potash Road for approximately 10.5 miles to mile marker 5, just past a marked parking lot and trailhead for the more popular Corona Arch trail. Look for a small pull-out on the right and a culvert going under the railroad tracks, this is your starting point.
