I didn't actually make it to the arch this time, maybe next time. But I started at the same location and broke from the Bulldog Canyon road pretty early, but I was interested in finding a slot canyon that my Scoutmaster took my fellow scouts and I to, back in the day. The slot canyon is located along that cliff band almost directly SE from the TH. It's between the arch and Bulldog Canyon in the area of that canyon just south of peak 2578 and just east of the '2200' on the topo. The mileage is about the same though, some old trail/roads can be used along the way, some faint trails do exist, but be prepared to do some off-trailing. To get inside this slot canyon, you approach from the west on the sloped bank of the cliff. There is some exposure to enter the canyon and some boulders that need to be climbed to make it up to some dry falls with a pool at the base of them. Just another gem tucked away in the Goldfield Mts. :D

Didn't hike to the arch, just a pleasant stroll along the river. Lots of spiderwebs, but very nice nonetheless.
