arches trail map

The hike is 1 mile up and 1 mile back climbing 480 feet. You can extend the hike by exploring the St Boniface School - Cemetary and by following trail along the hillside . Park on 8th street and go through the gate that is usually open (it is private property but I don't think they mind as I have waved to them as they drove by). If gate is closed you can back track to Gilman and park off the road next to field and hike up the dirt trail . Past the trees follow the trail to the right until you meet the access road. Follow to the top.
