Reviews

My best friend and I did hike this several years ago super great and fun run up to the arch but sadly there was no access to climb up the arch.

For an extended hike take Pinch 'Em Tight (#223) Trailhead to Rough Trail (#221) to Gray's Arch. Park at the Gray's Arch Parking Lot and head back on the gravel drive from the direction you came. Pinch 'Em Tight Trailhead is a short distance on your left. Take a left on Rough Trail and explore Hansen's Point before descending into the valley for some vista overlooks. Lots of backcountry sites available on the way to Hansen's Point!
