Oljato-Monument Valley, Utah

Hike to Goulding Arch

0.6 Miles Total - 78 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Derek Mathewson

*Enjoy a short family hike to an Arch that doesn't get a lot of visitors.

...Who doesn't enjoy short hikes to beautiful landscapes?! I know I do when I'm pressed for time!

This 0.6 out and back hike will lead you to an arch that doesn't get as much recognition due to it being directly across the street from Monument Valley Road taking you into the park. The hike starts at the Gouldings Campground and is well marked. When you pull into the campground parking, you'll see the signs directing you to the arch. Follow the signs and hike the 0.3 miles to the base of the beautiful Goulding Arch. You probably won't see it at first, as it blends in with the rock background, but keep an eye out to your right and you'll see it. When you're done, take the trail back the same way you came. This trail is good for all skill levels and can be done during anytime of the year.

For anyone that may be interested in booking reservations for the campground & RV park, or just may have questions about the hike, I've included the info below:
