This was a fun little hike to do. I started at the Blue Point/Phon D Sutton trailhead (https://www.google.com/maps/place/Phon+ ... 1783?hl=en) on Bush Highway.

Six of the seven miles were almost flat, with an elevation gain of around 325 feet over the six miles. The most difficult thing about this portion of the hike was dodging all of the horse poop that is out there. But where there is horse poop, there are horses -- and I saw 6 wild horses on the way back to my vehicle.

The climb up to the Arch was a bit steep, with an elevation gain of around 500 feet over 1/2 mile. It was off-trail, but it wasn't a bad climb, although in a few places it was somewhat steep with some loose gravel. Climbing through the arch at the top, and enjoying the views from the arch, made the climb worthwhile.
